Gwahumbe is a very beautiful place and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. We only had two meals there and the food was well prepared, presented and delicious.I just think they need to maintain the rooms better and make sure the rooms are ready by 2pm. Also, it might be a good idea to warn people about the roadworks...

Great food, spa, accommodation and friendly staff. Having a 4x4 opens more self drive driving opportunities, which would make the park experience better. Believe there are plans to increase number of wild animals, which would be great

Great spot that is extremely convenient from Durban. Great that you can also drive/walk/ride yourself around the reserve. The lodge is very chilled and relaxed. Great place to turn off. Will be using the lodge for our upcoming sales conference.

Delicious food, informative game drive, relaxing spa and cosy main area. Meet the grumpy rhino, see zebras, giraffes, impalas and other animals, maybe even the mountain lion or leopard that roams freely.

What a wonderful weekend. The staff are extremely efficient, friendly and helpful - from the booking process right through to when we left. From Nombuso, LiIly, Faith and all the ladies in the restaurant that helped make our stay an absolute pleasure. This was my second trip and when the opportunity rises I will definitely be back

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just an hour's drive from Durban - or a 45 minute drive from Pietermaritzburg, Gwahumbe Game Lodge & Spa offers a wide variety of catered and self catered accommodation ranging from ultimate luxury to a rustic bush camp. We are "Wilderness on a Whim" - the perfect getaway to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the bush veld. Game drives are undoubtedly the best way to view our exceptional fauna & flora, offering the opportunity to get up close and personal with the game in a natural setting. As our reserve is relatively small, there is always an excellent chance for guests to view our variety of game, such as hippo, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra and many antelope species to name but a few. The Reserve enjoys an abundance of animals and birds. ... more   less
