About Umzimkulu River Lodge

Umzimkulu River Lodge offers serviced Bed & Breakfast or Self Catering accommodation on one of the most beautiful bends of the Umzimkulu River in the Southern Drakensberg. Umzimkulu River Lodge is just two hours from Durban and six hours from Johannesburg in the foothills of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site.

Accommodation

The comfortable self catering cottages are set along the river bank, each with their own log fires, BBQ facilities and beautiful country vistas. The cottages are nicely spaced for peace and privacy.

Please see the individual unit descriptions with photographs below, to assist you with your choice.

Dining

We have a set dinner menu with an option of two mains daily and several desserts to choose from. We also have an a la carte breakfast menu and a pub lunch menu if you prefer to leave the cooking to us!

Attractions and Activities

Activities include: trout fishing, small Bass dam, adventure playground, animal farm, walks, birding, Quad bike trails, horse riding and river rafting nearby.

Fishing
Fishermen enjoy the unrivalled opportunities to catch rainbow trout along our 2.5km stretch of the Umzimkulu. Should the river conditions be unfavorable, there is a trophy dam on our neighbouring farm available to our guests - booking essential. The rivers are open from from September to end May every year. Dams are however open for year round fishing enjoyment.

Canoeing & Tubing
Canoes, paddles and tubes are available to our guests for hire. Tubing is a favorite summer activity. Guests are dropped off about 5km upriver and tube back to the lodge.

Please Note

There is sporadic cell phone signal.
