This was hotel 13 of 14 in a 4,5 weeks holiday in ZA - and it was the worst place where we stayed. The staff was very friendly but had to call the head office for each and everything (where is it if not on site?): - It took 45 minutes till we got a room close to what we... More

A superb accommodation facility, conveniently situated about three kilometres from town. The seemingly Buddhist atmosphere is pleasant, with well kept grounds around the thatched bungalows. The facility is situated on the banks of the majestic Umzimvubu River and provides for the guests who like boat rides & rowing. An excellent facility even inside the rooms.

Excellent Hospitality. Great location and setting among the mountains. Some of the roads are rather rugged-great for off road vehicles-not so much for luxury sedans. The town is rather rural however the Lodge makes up for the lack of urbanisation. The food is excellent, there is adequate activities if you enjoy exploring nature and hiking. The airstrip is a must... More

After a 5 or so hour Drive From the North Coast of KZN - the busy towns, potholes & roaming cattle along the way, we were fairly amused as we approached the sign that said 133 bends to the PSJ Super Spar. We couldn't really keep track of the number of bends, but we really did enjoy the scenic drive... More

The lodge is on the wide riverbank and has a beautiful outlook over the river to the mountains. Thatched buildings with rooms that are very comfortable. Good security, fenced and gated and the grounds are well kept. Enjoyed the meals and some of the ladies on staff gave us a concert with local songs and dances. Wished we could have... More

We were at the lodge for two nights during our trip from Maputo to Capetown. The lodge is very well situated: at the river, between beautiful mountains and is a warm welcome with its tranquility. Nicely located for discovery trips in the area. Hospitality was great. Although they were rebuilding part of the lodge due to the recent floods one... More

If you want to experience great hospitality in a great setting in Port St.Johns, then go to N'taba River Lodge. The setting is awesome and one can feel the African experience. Nestled between mountains and on the river's edge, this lodge has spectacular views. The setting at night is so blissful and relaxing with lights focused on some trees. One... More
