My husband and I checked in on the evening of May 5th, 2014. Upon arriving, my husband attempted to secure our passports, two wallets containing two credit cards, and cash in RANDS and USD in the safe located in the bedroom. My husband had a bit of trouble locking the safe and we asked for assistance. As we waited for... More

Myself and my husband stayed over in the honeymoon suite at Umbhaba Lodge and I can truly say I feel sorry for the couple that would be staying over in that room the next evening. We arrived late on Thursday evening and thought to try a different room in the lodge as we regularly stay there but in a tribal... More

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

We had a great stay and excellent service. The hotel and restaurant staff were very accommodating. Great food and excellent room. It was rather cool to watch the wildebeest wander through the grounds while having dinner.

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
