From R860 per Unit



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 Drakensberg. We are situated 2 hours from DBN and 6 hrs from Johannesburg in the foothills of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site.

A place to unwind.

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.

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. We undertake to contribute to the sustainability of the Tourism Industry and are committed to quality assurance. We also boast an AA Recommended Status which is assessed on an annual basis to keep us on our toes.

Come and experience restoration of body and soul in truly lovely surroundings.

Families love it for the unhurried old world country atmosphere with days spent picnicking under the huge oaks on the river island, bolder hopping in thrombosis gorge and exploring all this adventure playground has to offer. The animal farm, canoes, playground and trampoline are a just a few of the facilities that keep children enjoying the fresh air and outdoors all day long.
All our fully equipped self catering units are situated just meters from the river bank with stunning views. They all come with log fires and 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. We aim to have your cottages refreshed and ready for you by 14:00 on your arrival day and we ask that you vacate your unit 10:30 on your departure day. We do however make allowances upon request if there are no other guests expected.
