Umfolozi Mthembu Lodge is a KwaZulu Natal game lodge providing a wildlife experience for tourists visiting Zululand.

About Umfolozi Mthembu Lodge

Mthembu Lodge has an earthy character with panoramic view of the water and the Wilderness. The cylindrical flat stone roofs and clay-coloured façade of Mthembu Lodge make it blend in with the natural surroundings.

Mthembu Lodge lies low on an embankment of the White iMfolozi River and allows you to get up close and personal with the bush. Seated on your private deck, you can watch different bird species fluttering through the thickets in front of you, and spot some larger animals drinking at the river. There is no shortage of wildlife here.

Accommodation

Mthembu Lodge is intimate with only twenty two beds. Situated somewhat eye level off the river, it has a panoramic view of the White iMfolozi River. The lodge boasts 7 individual Private Villas with outdoor showers, and two two-bedroomed Family Villas, one with a private plunge pool.

Each private villa was hand-built by members of the local Mthembu clan. Each stone set in place and the floors lovingly smoothed over by hand. When you step inside each luxurious villa, you are immediately pulled into the uMfolozi Wilderness through the floor to ceiling glass doors featured in each space of the villa.

From the lounge to the bedroom, to the bathroom – you have continuous views of the bush and river and access to your private deck.

Mthembu Lodge is intimate with only seven private villas that sleep two, and two two-bedroom family villas that sleep up to two adults and three children. One boasts a private plunge pool. The villas have King-size beds that can be converted to twin beds. An extra single bed can be supplied. The private villas also have outside showers.

Wildlife Experiences

As uMfolozi Big Five Game Reserve is a private concession within the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park, safaris are not confined to main roads. Our Guides have access to Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park and our Private Concession. With a limited number of vehicles on each property, guests are able to spend extended periods of time watching wildlife in its natural habitat.

The bush takes on a completely different perspective when you are on foot. Sit and absorb the many sights and smells of the African bushveld. This is as close as it gets!
