We stayed at this hotel about 3 years ago. We were perfectly happy with the room, service and food. We booked it again for March this year and read some of the reviews about the crime that is taking place, including allegations that staff are involved. I emailed the GM with my concerns asking for a response to my questions... More

I have stayed at this lodge once before and was most impressed, so much so, my wife and I went back. Sadly, the lodge has become a crime hot spot. We experienced a break-in to our room while attempting to sleep at night. Bottom line is this. The night manager apologised and was understanding, he did however advise that this... More

We only stayed one night on our way into the Kruger but we were more than satisfied with our choice. The room we had was huge, a bit sparce and dark in some places but had everything that we needed with a nice small verandah looking over the small dam. The staff were great although our waiter battled a little... More

This Lodge has a great location for exploring the Kruger National Park - about 10 minutes away, and many of the areas attractions. It has a great atmosphere and fantastic staff and service. However, in one corner there was clearly a space and they added on two smaller rooms. We got one of those. For a four star facility, this... More

I Travelled all over the Lowveld area and when I got to the Lodge, I was suprized with a very large room, wooden deck overlooking a dam, little setting area and it was very nice to take a good break from the Roads. This room is very private and I had a good nights rest after a very nice Buffet.

We only stayed one night. We arrived late after a long drive from Johannesburg and a tour of the surrounding area. An interesting a day to say the least and it came to a very good end at the Umbhaba Lodge. Our room was very large, complete with a separate bedroom and setting area complete with a real fireplace. Really... More

We recently stayed at Umbhaba lodged & I'm surprised by its four star rating. The room was dark, smelled, & required a good clean (particularly the very dirty bathroom). There were marks on the manchester, the bath was constantly dirty & the bottom of the shower slimely & mouldy. The doors& walls were also stained. The doors were difficult to... More

The Umbhaba Lodge in Hazyview outside of Kruger National Park is lovely, the perfect  South African setting and is convenient to the park. However it has some issues. The beautiful setting is in need of some TLC. The landscaping was scraggly and water falls we're not working. As for what I believe was the pool,  I couldn't see the bottom... More

The grounds are wonderful. The staff was very professional and the rooms are more than one might imagine. The suites are very well equipped and comfortable. While the lighitng was less than "standard", we found that this was the case in most locations so we must accept that the need is for us to change or view of the term... More
