Ukuthula Lodge

From R400 PPS



A mere 15 minute meander from Pietermaritzburg, Ukuthula Lodge stands true to its title. From isiZulu, Ukuthula translates to peace and calm and this 300 hectare game farm is definitely rest at its best.

The Lodge has 6 similar self-catering chalets. Meals can be selected from our wholesome farm menu and enjoyed in the privacy of your chalets, at the one of the viewing decks or in the farmhouse dining room. We provide delicious picnic baskets and barbeques. Our flexibility is unique so talk to us as we endeavour to accommodate your requests.

The 6 thatched chalets are all elegantly decorated and furnished in neutral African colours making them a restful and relaxing space. The airy rooms opening downstairs onto wooden viewing decks where you will find the wild life almost close enough to touch. Let Ukuthula Lodge be your home away from home.

A favourite spot is a the main boma deck perched overlooking one of our dams, where you can see our shy Marsh Terrapins sunning themselves on the banks while Red Bishops hang out amongst the reeds and the larger mammals from the tallest giraffes to the diminutive baby warthogs gather to drink. Another setting to escape to, the quaint river boma at the concourse of the Karkloof and Umgeni where otters play and often, the call of an African Fish Eagle is heard.

In the Karkloof foothills overlooking Albert Falls Dam, the view from each thatched villa is magnificent - from open grassland, African Bushveld to steep valleys

A definite highlight would be the beautiful walking trails for nature lovers, which are perfect for hiking, running or cycling for those with an energetic disposition. Game drives in 4x4 vehicles with complimentary sundowners at one of the secluded viewing sites, where you can take in our glorious African sunsets Half Day trips to enjoy motorised water sports at Albert Falls Dam Guided quad or motor bike rides Other local activities and attractions include: Karkloof Canopy Tours Epic Go Karting Phezulu Crocodile Farm and Snake Park African Birds of Prey Sanctuary Cultural and Historical experiences at the local African Art Centre, Anglo-Zulu War Monuments, Fort Nottingham Museum, Mahatma Gandhi Statue, Phezulu Zulu Village, The Drakensburg Mountain Range, Battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift are all within easy driving distance.
