About Imvubu Lodge

Imvubu Lodge, meaning hippo in Zulu, was inspired by the famous "Huberta the Hippo" who undertook the historic journey from Zululand to East London. Tucked away in the lush greenbelt zone of Richards Bay, Imvubu Lodge is adjacent to the scenic Lake Menywa and the unspoilt beaches of the Indian Ocean. These pristine surroundings make bird watching an extraordinary experience.

The lodge is conveniently located within close proximity to the Tuzi Gazi Waterfront, the International heritage site of St Lucia and two world-class game reserves boasting the Big 5. Situated only 1.5 hours from Durban allows for easy access to splendid shopping centers, the Richards Bay airport, numerous restaurants, pubs, sporting facilities and emergency services.

Verified reviewpoor

Very disappointing for a Superior Chalet. Utensils were very dirty and unkept cupboards dropping all inside were dirty all the utensils needed to be scrubbed before we used - lovely place but not again for the price. kitchen and lounge area very scruffy and floors not maintained ----plse send someone to view the chalets. We had to occupy No. 3 - never go bk again. Richards Bay lovely place would go bk different accommodation.
