How can I write a great review about a place that is often fully booked.... I know its my own fault for booking so late....ha ha.... I should have learn't from the other times I've stayed here, that I should book earlier!!
This lodge is awesome!! We usually stop over here before heading up Sani Pass into the snow adorning the mountains of Lesotho. The rooms are warm, with that fireplace glowing, comfy beds and just perfect for a family getaway.
Every time we have stayed here, Stephen really went out of his way to assist us and make us feel comfortable and welcome. Our last trip to the Lodge was in August 2012, when lots of roads were closed due to snow. Stephen constantly phoned to keep us updated on what roads had opened and if we were still ok. That was quite a drive!!
Thank you Lynne and Stephen. We will book again.... and again.... and again !!!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.

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.
