There is no bad word that can describe this place. False pretences on their website but according to Benjamin is not their website. We compared our website with theirs and noticed that everything written on the websites are the same. First of all we wanted to watch rugby the next day day but there was no 'bar with a big... More

False advertisement on their website! This is bad - stay away! Arrived and found nothing is as advertised on their website. Paid R1800.00 deposit for the stay. Decided to cancel the stay and owner committed himself to give our money back. Now that we left he does not want to give our money back - he told us we have... More

Beautiful scenery, good food, relaxing, intimate and very welcoming atmosphere. Beer lovers make sure to take your own! Some renovations are taking place, which may seem untidy to some people, although it did not bother me at all. All the staff are friendly and makes you feel at home.

We stayed for 2 nights. When we arrived Benjamin welcomed us in a relaxing environment. The next day we went for a long hike up to Wolfberg Arch. We needed good food after that. And staff surprised us every meal with great food. The best stop between Cape Town and Noordoewer.

We stayed with Ed for 2 nights after we left Cape Town. This is a great place to just "be". Great hikes starting from the lodge. Orange trees. There is a super cool/happy nice dog. We played for hours. It is a happy place to be. We visited several towns within 150 km from Ukholo. Sleep was great. It is... More

The Ukholo Lodge is perfectly situated if you want to go hiking in the Cedar Bergs. Edmund (and his little cute dog) were very welcoming and friendly, even though we arrived very late that night. The breakfast was great too, such was the dinner. The rooms are nicely decorated, each room has its own flair. You can see that Edmund... More

I was in Ukholo Lodge in the third week of February. The serene atmosphere coupled with the friendly disposition of Edmund and his team made my stay an unforgettable experience. I spent two nights at the lodge, and the time I spent got me back in touch with nature. The beautiful surrounding, the vantage view, lush gardens and beautiful flowers... More

My family and I visited the Ukholo Lodge when our son was a few months old. It was really peaceful and a perfect getaway to recharge as a family. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday and again a few months later with 5 other couples as a "family retreat".... More

We found it very difficult to find accommodation that was pet friendly - some were advertised as such, but were unwelcoming when we enquired about bringing our pets along. Ukholo Lodge was very helpful & accommodating to us & to our pets! It was also lovely to spend days swimming & lazing next to the Olifants River. Thank you Edmund... More
