We were last at Umnenge in October 2012 and had a super time. We just had to come back. We booked for 2 nights and stayed an extra... just too comfortable to want to move on. Great view of the bay. Easy walk to and along the cliffs. Great hosts (including Dora & Lady). Could not ask for more

We stayed at Umnenge Lodge for 3 nights and had an absolute perfect time there. Great breakfast. :) Very nice rooms, and also very friendly people. Rich organized for us the Great White Shark viewing, and he also organized the braai in the evening. Hope, we can come again.
