Lodge, Self-catering
Our peaceful valley resort, which is 22 km out of Underberg, provides the perfect location for a retreat from city life. Heres 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.

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.

Activities at the lodge include bass and trout fishing, swimming, boating, tubing, canoeing, walking, horse riding and birding. We have an a la carte breakfast and lunch menu and a set two-course dinner menu available. Come and experience restoration of body and soul in truly lovely surroundings.

"Umzimkulu Lodge has a beautiful , scenic, healthy environment with good service from the owner.however pygmy cottage is in bad condition and lacks grill/baking cooking facilities. Cottages need major renovation. It was a pleasant stay if you can endure the run down cottages. But we still had fun and a wonderful time on the river, the walks are amazing - recommended stay if willing to compromise on rustic lodges."
