Forget the outside world once you´ve arrived at Umngazi. Located directly on the river mouth & coast you´ll be treated with beautiful views and plenty of activities. Perfect for every type of guest although I can imagine that it can get very full with children during the south african vacation period so be aware of that. we stayed in the honeymoon bungalow as we wanted to be in the area where no children are allowed, which proved trustworthy. It was a very nice room with a great deck for reading and watching the waves crash on the shore. the only complaint i had was that our room smelled a bit musty as if there wasn´t proper ventilation & light getting to the room. Overall though, we had an amazing time - great food, pool, and the spa...amazing!
