I am extremely disappointed with the useless service I have received from Gwahumbe. I went onto their website to make a booking for a weekend away. Sent through a booking request, and heard nothing. I then redid the booking request twice. Still I got no response. After waiting a few days I called. I got no apologies for the lack... More

We stumbled upon Gwahumbe whilst searching the net for things to do. Upon arriving the staff were so pleasant. They asked our names and showed us to the bar for a drink that we took outside awaiting the lunch. The lunch was great! We were then asked if we wanted a game drive so we agreed. Neil was superb!

Spent two nights in the camp with friends; rustic but affordable. Huts were tiny. Kitchen well enough equipped, although gas frigde often cut out and needed to be relit. Great boma for eveings. Would go again.

Whilst on a short trip to South Africa I needed a place to take family and friends from Durban for a couple of days, that wasn't to far away. I stumbled upon Gwahumbe Reserve on the internet and decided to book four rooms for eight of us. Best decision that I made. The lodge is set on top of a... More

We booked for an Easter Sunday Carvery with an egg hunt for the children after lunch. We were asked to prepay when we booked. On arriving we were told lunch would be served at 1230 pm . We ordered drinks and waited. They had had a wedding for 120 people the night before and tables and chairs were strewn all... More

It's crazy to think that Gwahumbe is so close to PMB and Durban. This weekend, my family and I felt like we were deep in the middle of the bush. Our drive around Gwahumbe was stunning - the best picnic spot we've ever visited - under the overhang of a huge cave, decked out with heavy wooden furniture and with... More

Just off the city buzz, never thought there would be a fully maintained reserve. On arrival we were well received and shown to our cabin - I knew something was missing... No electronics! The silence is so loud, it is the most amazing thing. The menu presented much variety of lovely meals at every meal time. O that fireplace made... More

I was looking for a little retreat close to home where I could share my 30th with special friends and family. I found Gwahumbe Game and Spa online and fell in love with the views, the gorgeous lodges and the fact that it was right on our doorstep! The managers and staff at Gwahumbe are fantastic people that go that... More

Ive been to Gwahumbe on quite a few occasions now, the main attraction for me being the 4x4 routes and being able to see some wildlife. I quite like the venue and its relatively close to my house so its ideal for an outing or a spontaneous weekend getaway, unfortunately though the reception staff have proven to be rude, ill... More
