Umkhumbi Lodge is a good value small and homely lodge in a bush setting with local wildlife and a good location for access to big five safari in Hluhluwe - Imfolozi Game Reserve.

The Lodge is a 30 minute drive from Hluhluwe - Imfolozi Game Reserve, and is owned and managed by Anton and Emma Roberts. This family friendly lodge is very much a South African home from home hosted experience. The lodge is built in a fragile African sand-forest with regular sightings of Nyala, suni, bushbabies, impala and rich birdlife in the lodge grounds. The location lends itself to easy access to both Hluhluwe - Imfolozi Game Reserve and St Lucia Wetland Park.

The open fronted main area (Lapa) has a swimming pool, dining room, fire pit and treetop bar and lounge area from where you can enjoy spectacular African sunsets. The 12 twin or double bedrooms are modern, simple and uncluttered and each has air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom, small fridge with tea/coffee making facilities and indoor and outdoor sitting area.

We usually combine stays here with guided game drives on Hluhluwe - Imfolozi Game Reserve and kayak trips in the St Lucia Wetlands. There are walking trails on the property and nocturnal walks can be arranged.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
