We had a really nice welcome by the host who showed us to our rooms and talked us through our itineraries the agent sent her. The rooms were very in keeping with the bush/treehouse/log cabin feel. Unfortunately the lighting was pretty dark in the room and very dark in the bathroom. If you don't like creepy crawlies in your bedroom... More

A very good lodge chosen for us by the tour company. Comfortable surroundings in a beautiful location. Breakfast and dinner were very good and it was very useful to have the "honesty bar" to get either a glass or a bottle of wine. The proprietors were very friendly and the lodge was managed efficiently.Certainly worth coming to again.

Umlilio's owners and especially the 'mom' was extremely friendly. Breakfast was average but nice. The mattresses needs attention. Overall a lovely stay. Location is beautiful and the gardens pretty...

Amazing B&B, wonderful rooms (lots of space, decoration, clea, just beautiful) and lovely owners. They help to organise tours, also in advance and everything was well organized. We stayed just one night, but this was the best B&B on our trip.

We stayed at Umlilo for 4 nights using it as home base for exploring the area. South African hospitality at it's best is met at Umlilo. From the moment we checked in we were treated with utmost warmth and received help in every way including a home made birthday cake for my wife. The property is not brand new but... More

We really enjoyed our experience here! Lourens and his family were welcoming, always helpful and always a friendly smile. We slept well, ate great food here - breakfasts, dinners that were part of our safari package were amazing! We would not change a thing! What a beautiful tropical setting! Coming from the US and not knowing where to stay or... More

A lot of fences along the B&B's of St Lucia, but they are there for a reason…the hippo's take over at night. In our four nights stay we had two encounters with a hippo in the middle of the town, where they were grazing during the evening :-). Beautiful creatures. As long as you don't walk in their way.

My partner and I have been planning a trip to South Africa for some time now, having grown up in Kwa-Zulu Natal, I knew Uhluhluwe-Imfolozi would be the perfect retreat for my partner who is German. We did our booking through Heritage Tours & Safaris and were apprehensive at first, especially since we could not see or visit the location... More

Stayed at Umlilo Lodge for three nights in end October. As you walk in, it looks like a little oasis with wooden bridges, palm trees and flowing streams. Very picturesque….but be warned that the wooden decking is noisy when people walk past and the running water right outside one's room might be disturbing – especially is you have the bad... More
