About Kwenga Safari Lodge

Umhlametsi Private Nature Reserve meaning 'one days water' is a place where time stops and life begins ... Located on the western boundary of the Klaserie Game Reserve, the reserve has two non-perennial rivers meandering through the area and draws a diversity of wildlife and birds. White Rhino, Lion, Buffalo, Leopard, Cheetah and other African animals can be discovered on open vehicles.

The reserve has a number of superb vantage points from which sundowners are enjoyed with magnificent views of the Drakensberg mountains and the surrounding bushveld. Kwenga is a fully catered 16 bed lodge in the true African tradition and is reminiscent of a bygone era.


At Kwenga Safari Lodge, personalised service is offered by the staff and an experienced ranger will plan and guide you on game drives and walking safaris to suit your needs. The lodge has itís own exclusive character.

From the swimming pool and outside patio area, you are able to sip a cocktail while keeping an eye on the various animals at the waterhole a mere 100 meters away. Whether you choose to listen to the roar of the Lions from Kwenga or sip a sundowner from the pool deck or tell stories around the camp fire with your family and simply spoil yourselves with the indulgence of Kwenga, we know that the spirit of the bush will linger in your souls.

The Lodge accommodates 16 guests in 8 thatched chalets. Double chalets have two bedrooms on either side of the building with en-suite bathrooms. The single unit chalets have larger en-suite bathrooms. All rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated in African design. Each chalet has its own patio and all rooms have ceiling fans and electric lighting.


Meals are served in the boma for a 'dining out under the stars' experience, and one may relax after dinner around the camp fire listening to the sounds of the African night. A thatched indoor dining room and lounge with fireplace is available in the event of inclement weather. On either side of the indoor dining area is a thatched patio, one overlooking the swimming pool and Drakensberg mountains, the other incorporating a friendly bar area.


Early morning, evening game drive and walking safaris which are conducted in open 4 x 4 Safari vehicles, are included in the quoted rates. Walks and drives can be organised with the rangers. Sundowners can be enjoyed at many different scenic places. The game ranger, guides and staff at Umhlametsi are experienced and dedicated to the conservation of the Reserve.

You are encouraged to experience a bush walk where you will be amazed by the intricate wonders of the African bush. The fully inclusive rates are inclusive of accommodation, morning game drive, late afternoon and evening game drive, breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea and coffee. Beverages/bar are extra. Bushwalks are optional and should you wish to experience a bushwalk, you will be able to do a bushwalk in place of a morning game drive or you can do a combined bushwalk with your evening game drive.


Umhlametsi is a wonderful wildlife, birding, hiking, touring and golfing destination. It is close to the Orpen and Phalaborwa Gates of the Kruger National Park, the majestic Drakensberg and the spectacular Blyde River Canyon. Guided sight-seeing day trips to local tourist spots are available to our guests offering an opportunity to visit the world renowned Kruger National Park, Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrims Rest, Cheetah Breeding Project, Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and the Shangaan Tribal Village.

For the golf enthusiast, the famous Hans Merensky golf course is in nearby Phalaborwa and Hoedspruit has its own challenging 9-hole, 18 tee course. Experience a game of golf while observing impala, warthog, duiker and other game grazing peacefully alongside you on the golf course.
