About Umkhumbi Lodge

Umkhumbi is the Zulu name for the Red Duiker, a shy small red antelope, which is our favourite and can commonly be seen picking its way across the forest floor. Nyala and Suni are regularly spotted. Umkhumbi is also fast becoming popular for it’s stunning birdlife with regular sightings of Twinspots.

Begin your evening by sipping sundowners with a view over the bushveld and enjoy swapping stories in the cosy Lapa area where you can enjoy your meals and drinks with other guests and guides, and even sometimes the bushbabies. The sunset is stunning from the restaurant deck and not to be missed!

Umkhumbi is ideal for family holidays, as children don’t need to sleep in make shift beds, or far away from their parents, they are situated right next door. Kids will love exploring the nearby bush. You might even spot our hand reared Impala!

Accommodation

Umkhumbi Lodge offers accommodation in comfortable air-conditioned lodges, all nestled in the bush. We have 12 twin-bedded rooms and each lodge has 2 rooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom.

An inter-leading door makes these units perfect for families, as kids can easily sleep close by, while you still enjoy your privacy. Each bathroom has a bath and shower. All guest rooms are fitted with a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, private veranda and air con.

Verified reviewexcellent

I can never understand why people would go to a large impersonal lodge when friendly lodges like this one exist. It is lovely to be made to feel like a friend or even one of the family. The staff are all friendly and nothing is too much trouble, Anton and Emma are perfect hosts and even their young son will do his best to answer your questions. As mentioned in another review Copper the dog loves making new friends and will follow you forever - well, as long as you scratch him behind the ear! I can't think of an evening when I didn't star gazing long into the night following the constellations as they tracked across the dark sky above me. I even faced my fears and held a large boa constrictor called fluffy, no one forced me to, and I'm so proud of myself! I am already planning my return!
