Umzimkulu River Lodge, Underberg

Our peaceful valley resort, which is 22 km out of Underberg, provides the perfect location for a retreat from city life. Here’s your chance to rest, 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 hanging 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 2.5 km stretch of river. To make sure you have a relaxing break, we have babysitters on hand to offer you solitude or an opportunity to enjoy a meal without having to mop up any spillages. Umzimkulu River Lodge has recently been awarded 3 Star grading in the self-catering category.

All our fully-equipped, self-catering units are situated just meters from the river bank with stunning views. All the units, except the log cabin, are equipped with log fires. All units have individual braai facilities. In winter a complimentary bundle of firewood is supplied on arrival and additional firewood is available to purchase thereafter. The units are serviced once daily in the mornings, excluding Sundays and Public Holidays. Should you require additional assistance, we can arrange to have a housekeeper available at an additional fee of R 15 per hour.

Activities at the lodge include bass and trout fishing, swimming, boating, tubing, canoeing, walking and birding. We have an a la carte breakfast and lunch menu and a set two-course dinner menu available. Meals are served in the dining room or on the deck overlooking the river. Come and experience restoration of body and soul in truly lovely surroundings.

We also have a restaurant and full-board bookings are available.

Guest reviews

Umzimkulu Lodge

My husband and I stayed at the Pygmy cottage and what a lovely little cottage it was. Although the Drakensberg was very dry and not like we expected it to be, the tranquility was awesome, just what we needed for our holiday. The hosts were extremely friendly and kind. I would definitely recommend this resort; we felt at home from day one.

Umzimkulu River Lodge

We spent an evening in Pygmy cottage and absolutely loved it. You truly have a piece of heaven and thank you for sharing it with us. I wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back in December with friends to enjoy it more. Thank you to Nuh and Bongani, you really do go the extra mile and are very friendly. I must say we especially loved the cats that curled up on our laps in front of the fire. Really made us feel at home.

Candace du Bruyn from South Africa, 23 Aug 2010

Lovely

It was lovely and peaceful there with the sound of the river and birds. Perfect place to just relax and unwind. Pygmy cottage (the doll house) was really cute with everything you needed. Thanks Steve. Keep up the good work there. The cats were just as friendly.

Bernice Bougas from South Africa, 09 May 2010

Best time

I had the best time away from the buzzing of the city; its nice and quiet at night. The rooms are very nice and tidy and its very good for the kids my boys liked it there!

Tranquil setting on the banks of the Umzimkulu River

An ideal breakaway from the stresses of Gauteng. It was great to arrive in the mist and sit around the cosy log-fire sipping a glass of red wine and sleep with the sound of the mountain stream in the background. We awoke to the lifting mist and calls of a red chested cuckoo and enjoyed the scenic 4 X 4 drive to the top Sani Pass via Himeville to visit the highest pub in Africa. When back at the lodge relaxed on the rocks in the river, swam and walked the area. Really a nice relaxing weekend.

Sue Robertson from South Africa, 30 Nov 2009

It is beautiful!!!

We had a wonderful week at Umzimkulu River Lodge. We recommend the "tubing", walking along the river and for the kids - the animal farm. Thank you Steve, Lynne, Dawn and John for making our stay so memorable. We'll be back!

Marelize Schlemmer from South Africa, 30 Nov 2009

We had a wonderful break.

What I liked most about the lodge was the peace and tranquility. The views are spectacular and the people very friendly.

RELAXING GETAWAY

We enjoyed a very relaxing two nights at Umzimkulu River Lodge in the quaint Pygmy Cottage. I enjoyed the trout fishing even though the water was slightly discoloured due to recent rains. The Gorge fishing was particularly exciting.

Umzimkulu River Lodge

Pied Cottage is beautifully situated and airy, although cold, but the fireplace makes up for this. Very quiet, and good facilities. In winter quite dry and brown, but winter has its own kind of beauty: crisp, white frost in the mornings, lovely sunshine days.
