    I can't think of a single negative thing about our trip to Umngazi, except that the drive is long and hair-raising at times.....so next time we'll fly in! This is the perfect holiday destination. The setting, staff, rooms, food, wine choices, well stocked shop, gardens,...More

    I had a beautiful stay at one of the units at Emlonyeni, very private and refreshing. The room had the most beautiful view, the sound of the sea had a very calming effect. The food was amazing, I absolutely enjoyed it.

    Contact the resort for availability. I believe you can fly in from Jhb and the resort picks you up from the airport. Please arrange the details with the resort. It is a stunning place.
