The location of the Umzimkulu River Lodge is beautiful and it is close to the Sani Pass tours. The lodge and the rooms are both fantastic, and the staff is overly friendly and very helpful. Highly recommended!

We had a great stay and could have stayed longer. The cottage was lovely. The tubing was fantastic, I highly recommend it. The hosts were so friendly and helpful. We will be back! Can’t wait until our next trip.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are delighted you enjoyed Mangrove Cottage. We had lots of fun renovating it recently. We look forward to welcoming you back!

We spent a long weekend away from it all. Umzimkulu was a excellent choice, we enjoyed the fishing, walks, playing in the river on the canoes and tubes, and picnics on the grass. For an easy Laid back choice, it comes highly recommended.
