About Umbhaba Lodge & Restaurant
There is a peaceful valley in the Lowveld all visitors vow to return to. The Sabie River Valley lies at the edge of the escarpment of the misty Drakensberg Mountains which towers above the subtropical, bushveld below. On a hillside overlooking this valley lies Umbhaba Lodge.
The peace and tranquility at Umbhaba, along with the seclusion of the Lowveld is the ideal departure point for excursions in to the Kruger National Park , the majestic Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window and Bourke’s Luck Pot Holes. Aside from luxury accommodation in a total of thirty rooms, the lodge is perfect for romantic weddings and high powered conferences.
Thirty suites are tastefully decorated, each in individual style. All rooms are temperature controlled for your comfort and are surrounded by flowing waterfalls and lush subtropical gardens.
The Induna Honeymoon Suite

Up to 100 guests awaiting you in the pews, soft white curtain drapes billowing in the breeze, your favorite song playing and a red carpet to carry you down the aisle.
