Umzimkulu River Lodge

Lodge (Less than 10 rooms)   •   Coleford Road, Underberg, KwaZulu-Natal , KwaZulu-Natal

DESCRIPTION

Umzimkulu River Lodge offers serviced, B&B or Self-catering accommodation on one of the most picturesque bends of the Umzimkulu River in the Southern Drakensburg. We are situated 2 hours from Durban and 6 hours from Johannesburg in the foothills of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site.

Our peaceful valley resort which is 22 km out of Underberg provides the perfect location for a retreat from city life. Here’s your chance to rest and listen to the river and the sounds of nature or spend some wholesome outdoor time with your family.
Families love it for the unhurried old world country atmosphere with days spent picnicking under the huge oaks on the river island, boulder hopping in Thrombosis Gorge or just “messing about in boats".

Honeymooners revel in the privacy of a luxurious suite and private deck just meters from the river bank. Fishermen love it for the unrivalled opportunities to catch rainbow trout along our 2.5 km stretch of river.

To make sure you have a relaxing break we have babysitters on hand to offer you solitude or an opportunity to enjoy a meal without having to mop up any spillages. Come and experience restoration of body and soul in truly lovely surroundings. All our fully equipped self-catering units are situated just meters from the river bank with stunning views. They all come with log fires and individual braai/bbq facilities. In winter a complimentary bundle of firewood is supplied on arrival and additional firewood is available to purchase thereafter.

The units are serviced once daily in the mornings, excluding Sundays and Public Holidays. Should you require additional assistance we can arrange to have a housekeeper available for an additional fee in the afternoons. We aim to have your cottages refreshed and ready for you by 14:00 on your arrival day and we ask that you vacate your unit 10:30 on your departure day. We do however make allowances upon request if there are no other guests expected.

Activities include; fishing - river trout and small dam bass, walking, bird watching, swimming, boating, tubing, farm animals, jungle gym, trampoline, splash pool and horse riding nearby.
