Review by Neil McArthur (Montagu, Western Cape)

Having previously visited as a day visitor, it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to spend 5 days and nights at the reserve. We had a most enjoyable relaxed and peaceful few days at Umgeni Valley, which we shared during the days with my daughter from Sunfield home. The staff are efficient, friendly and extremely helpful. We hope to visit again next year.

A word of thanks on behalf of the Schools River Health Programme for organising and managing the 3-day workshop. Congratulations to the efficient Umgeni management team and to the catering staff for providing tea and biscuits on demand and for the hot lunches of the 5-star variety. We look forward to further interactions with you.

Thanks again for all your help with the organising for my tour group. Overall their stay at Umgeni was a good one and they really loved having the Zebra so close to the accommodation.

Thank you for a lovely stay in Hepburn Cottage this weekend. The cottage was comfortable and had all that we needed (hot water being the priority after our hike!) and the walks were beautiful. I hope that your accommodation is well used as it is a jewel in the middle of hectic urban living
