The 5th stop on our tour of KwaZulu-Natal where we stayed for 3 nights. A 5/6 km drive down a dirt road and then you get to the gate and you are still 1.2km form reception! but it was worth the drive. We arrived just as it was starting to rain and unfortunately got a leak in our thatched chalet... More

We have now visited Hluhluwe River Lodge 3 times, and have loved it each time! Nice rooms, excellent food, and good staff led by a wonderful family! We definitely make it an annual stop over for preferably two nights of chilling before hitting the game parks or beaches!

Gavin and his staff were amazing. We arrived midday from a long journey (with 4 hungry kids) and the staff immediately set about to feed us. The food was incredible and appealed to the epicureans in our group. Besides the amazing food, one night we ate dinner with a serval staring at us from the trees. The second night, the... More

The staff are exceptional. Annelise was incredibly helpful and she and the rest of the staff looked after us very well. The food was very good. We were on an all inclusive and all of the meals were lovely. The ladies in the kitchen went out of their way to accommodate the children too and made chicken nuggets and chips... More

The first thing I would say about our amazing stay at the lodge is try getting a rugged car to hire to ensure your worthwhile journey, when you're off the main road, is more comfy and less worrying! From the moment you arrive you are made to feel extremely welcome by all the staff and and they are keen to... More

Our family stayed at the lodge as a quick getaway during the school holidays. I must admit to being very against the whole idea as I have been so busy at running my company.

We stayed at Hluhluwe River Lodge in June 2013 for a quick get away. The service was fantastic and we could not have been treated any better. After just two days we were in love with the place. This was our first visit to the Hluhluwe area and we can't wait to go back to explore the area and of... More
