About Marrob Lodge
Marrob Lodge is situated in the peaceful town of Kwambonambi, 22km north of Richards Bay. Enjoy the tranquil ambience of country living while being close to the business centres of Richards Bay and Empangeni.
At Marrob Lodge you are close to all the tourist attractions of Zululand in KwaZulu Natal; Umfolozi / Hluhluwe Game Reserve, St. Lucia Wetlands, Shakaland, Emdomeni cheetah breeding centre, Zulu dancing and the North Coast beaches, particularly Cape Vidal. All are 50 - 70km from the lodge, just a day trip away, making Marrob Lodge an ideal home base offering comfort and luxury at affordable prices. A visit to the Tuzi Gazi waterfront in Richards Bay is a pleasant interlude and the restaurants there are top quality.
All our rooms are tastefully furnished and feature thatch, giving them a rustic charm, warm in winter and cool in summer. They all offer tea / coffee making facilities with homemade biscuits. SABC and DStv is available and there are remote-controlled ceiling fans in all the rooms. All the rooms are en suite with showers and have king size double beds in them. On request we can make the rooms up with single beds.
The family suite and one double room have refurbished Victorian baths as well as showers in their bathrooms. All rooms are non-smoking and one room has a small balcony which overlooks the garden and the pool. The family suite features two inter-leading rooms (one with a king size bed and the other with two single beds) with a shared en suite bathroom. It is ideal for a family of four.
The self-catering flatlet is fully equipped and sleeps four people in one bedroom (a king size bed and a double bunk bed). This room is also ideal for a family, especially if the children are small. It has a bedroom, en suite bathroom and a small combined lounge, dining room and kitchenette. All rooms have two and three pin plugs for mobile phones and hairdryers.

Relax in the pool or the shady garden if you are not doing the tourist trip. The property abuts onto the Kwambonambi Golf Course with the club house just a 200m walk away.
