Sitting proudly at the top is this outstanding lodge! Where to begin? THE ROOM - We stayed at the Serengeti, a room designed like any 5 star hotel room... with basic amenities, a large bathroom...

Staff were superb, food delicious, lodge is smart and scenery breathtaking. My wife enjoyed the spa while I enjoyed the pool area with the kids. If you visiting to view a variety of animals however, you'll likely be disappointed. We saw everything within our first hour of driving. It's an ideal place for a romantic getaway where you just want...

If you are looking for a down to earth camping experience in the middle of a game reserve - the Mzingi camp is it! Your children can roam freely looking for animals and enjoy the beauty of the wilderness while large herbivours are all around. This was our third trip to the camp and bsolutely loved it!

Spent a day visit at the game reserve. Staff were very accomodating, game drive was exciting and informative, with lots to see. Romantic picnic with an incredible view made the trip very worthwhile.

We were pleasantly surprise how beautiful this hidden bush camp is!! Set in the valley with lots of trees for lazy afternoon hammock sessions. Comfy mattresses and a great place to unwind with a cosy bonfire.

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

“The wheelchair accessible room is spacious and accessible, but the bathroom does not meet the requirements from an accessibility perspective ie - need hand rails, a higher toilet, an accessible basin etc. It is roomy, but it is not user friendly at present for a wheelchair user or mobility impaired individual.”
