Had a fantastic three days at Umzolozolo Lodge. The lodge area is quite serene, and the hospitality and food was fantastic. The best part for me was the game drives at the crack of dawn and in the late afternoon. Our Ranger Chris was quite knowledgeable about the animals and their habits, and was able to get us quite close... More

Absolutely loved this lodge! Stayed here for 4 nights and had the best time. Grayson was our ranger and did an outstanding job. Everyone at the lodge is friendly, welcoming, and professional. Every meal was 5 star! I would highly recommend staying here. I got a great massage from Pinky also.

We had a fantastic few days at Umzolozolo lodge from the very first moment we met our Game Ranger to the moment we left. It was an authentic experience and a moment in my life I could embrace the wild in its natural glory. It was an adventure to track down the lions but they soon ventured down into the... More

From the moment we walked in we were made to feel at home by Debbie, Dave and Clinton. The room was beautiful, overlooking the reserve . We did not get to use the outdoor shower, because the winter suddenly kicked in, but the hot bath after the game drive was a romantic alternative. And then off to a wonderful dinner.... More

We stayed in 2 lodges in the Game Park and this was the standout. The hosts Debbie and Dave were so hospitable and delightful company. The food was exceptional and the rooms beautifully decorated. the position of the Lodge on the hill makes for spectacular views. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

There was never a dull moment during our stay at the lodge. The entire team was amazing and every need was taken care of effortlessly. Dave and Debbie create a warm, relaxed, family atmosphere without sacrificing the feeling of luxury and being totally pampered. The food was scrumptious, Clinton made sure our glasses were always full and we love the... More
