The setting is as close to heaven as you can get whilst you are still alive. Friendly staff and good quality food help the overall experience. Rooms have thatched ceilings so may be a bit dusty for some guests, also one end of the hotel gets the morning sun and is warmer than the other end. Poor Wi-Fi connections.

This was our last stop of an exhausting 3 week tour of North Eastern Sa with Dutch visitors. We stayed at many wonderful Lodges during the tour and Inkungu rates amongst the best. We were each allocated the stunning upstairs suites.Huge rooms with really nice antique furniture and a great bathroom and stunning views of the berg from private balconies.The... More

From the moment we arrived, quite late on Friday night, we were made to feel so welcome and at home by Anton, Kerry and their friendly, attentive staff. We were taken to the luxurious Presedential suite and were delighted by the exquisite antique furnishings and the comfortable feel of the room with its own cosy lounge and bar area. Upon... More

I went a while ago, and if I ever go to South Africa again I'll defiantly stay at this lodge again!! It is so modern with the most beautiful views!! There's a nice swimming pool and a gorgeous garden to walk in. This is my favourite lodge around the world!!

I loved everything about our stay at Inkungu Lodge, from the beautiful rooms and breath-taking views to the delicious meals and attentive and friendly staff. A warm fire and an excellent red wine completed the cosy atmosphere ... keep it up guys.

The hospitality of Maryla is excellent. The accommodation rate however is totally overpriced. There is not even covered parking for your vehicle. The menu options are slightly limited but the overall service of the catering staff is excellent.

From the time we drove through the gate to the time we left, we have nothing but good things to say about the restaurant (we did not stay overnight - but did get a tour of the rooms and wish that we were). Friends promised us a quality dinning experience and we were not disappointed. Drinks on the veranda, with... More

We decided to break our journey from Natal to Guateng and opted for Ikungu Lodge. It is well situated in the Drakensberg with lots to do in the area. We were treated to the Presidential Suite that included a balcony where we could sit and enjoy a glass of wine whilst admiring the scenery. The lodge is a great place... More
