More about our beautiful lodge

Much more than just a bed for the night, Umkhumbi Lodge is the best place to stay in Hluhluwe if you want to get the most out of your holiday. With lovely bush chalets and a network of walking and cycling trails, this is a great base from which to explore the surrounding game reserves. 


For families travelling with children Umkhumbi Lodge is ideal. Our family chalets are surrounded by woodland and harmless wildlife. A swimming pool, games lounge and kids play area will keep them busy, and we have a great kids package of activities if you stay for two nights.


Wildlife you may see around the lodge includes zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, kudu, warthogs, nyala, suni, impala, duikers, monkeys and mongooses. Bushbabies are often seen in the evening and even occasionally leopards are also spotted on the walking trails. Umkhumbi Lodge is popular for its stunning birdlife with regular sightings of Pink-throated Twinspots, Narina Trogon, Eastern Nicator and many more. The area is rich in wildlife, with nearby Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park for Big 5 safaris as well as the rich, varied ecosystems of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.
