On a blistering hot winter’s day and in desperate need of relief from the heat we arrived at Umbhaba Lodge, the staff was extremely friendl. The property is basic and I found it a little dated.

No star rating. Misleading marketing. Poor standard. Restaurant not up to standard. Rooms require upgrading. Wedding venue very close to hotel rooms, thus very noisy in the rooms. Friendly staff though.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy a leisurely drive or slight detour through the artistic towns of Dullstroom or White River before relaxing into the peaceful surrounds of Umbhaba Lodge, in Hazyview. The tranquility at Umbhaba, along with the seclusion of the bushveld, is the ideal departure point for excursions in to the Kruger National Park, the majestic Blyde River Canyon, God's Window and Bourke's Luck Pot Holes. The Kruger National Airport is minutes away. Umbhaba Lodge lies on a hillside overlooking the Sabie Valley, on the edge of the Drakensberg escarpment. The lodge is picture-perfect for leisure breakaways, weddings and executive conferences. Lodge facilities include an a la carte restaurant, the safari-style Burn Out Bar and a quiet lounge. A crystal-clear rock pool amid sprawling lawns is a glorious invitation in the heat of a Lowveld day Activities at Umbhaba Lodge include day and night safaris, helicopter excursions, hot air ballooning, fishing, hiking and horse riding. ... more   less
