Umzimkulu River Lodge offers serviced, DB&B, B&B or Self catering accommodation on one of the most picturesque bends of the Umzimkulu River in the Southern Drakensburg. We are situated 2 hours from DBN and 6 hrs from Johannesburg in the foothills of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site. Our peaceful valley resort which is 22km out of Underberg provides the perfect location for a retreat from city life. Here’s your chance to rest and listen to the river and the sounds of nature or spend some wholesome outdoor time with your family. Families love it for the unhurried old world country atmosphere with days spent picnicking under the huge oaks on the river island, boulder hopping in Thrombosis Gorge or just “messing about in boats”. Honeymooners revel in the privacy of a luxurious suite and private deck just meters from the river bank.Fishermen love it for the unrivalled opportunities to catch rainbow trout along our 2.5km stretch of river. Come and experience restoration of body and soul in truly lovely surroundings.

The river brings a calmness that feeds the soul, practical and clean with views to die for. Thoroughly enjoyed our 1 night and highly recommended. Wish we could stay longer and take in more of the serenity

We recently enjoyed a short break at this Lodge. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our neat, fully self catering cottage, situated just a short walk from the main reception building. If you do not feel like cooking, then the onsite restaurant offers an extremely reasonable menu with an Asian slant to the dishes. The Bohemian sticky chicken wings and veg spring rolls were excellent, as was the chicken fried rice and pulled pork burger which we sampled. The cottage we had was neat and clean, with all facilities provided for a comfortable stay. The babbling river below us made for a tranquil time, which came to an end too soon.

We traveled to the Drakensberg area and found this nice place. By the river, close to Sani pass. Welcoming owner, beautiful gardens, nice staff, good food. All was as we like it. Unfortunately it was raining and cloudy so we could not go up the pass. More reason to return another time.

We had a perfect stay in a peaceful area. Our hosts are very nice people. We slept very well and the time we spent in Umzimkulu Lodge was very relaxing. We recommend the lodge to everyone who comes to this area.
