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 Drakensburg. We are situated 2 hours from DBN and 6 hrs from Johannesburg in the foothills of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site. 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. Come and experience restoration of body and soul in truly lovely surroundings.

What a gem. We took our 2 dogs and had our own secure fenced in cottage. Total relaxing time in an amazing setting with the river on your doorstep and lovley walks along the river. Would recomend for all age groups. The hosts Lynn and Steven were wonderfull and make you feel at home. We will definately be back as soon as possible

The views were absolutely amazing. The accomodation was comfortable and in an ideal setting near the river. The hosts were very firendly and helpful. Our two little dogs also loved the place! Good getaway from the daily hustle and bustle of the city.

We loved our 4 nights in July. Weather was excellent. Kids loved the boating, putt putt and jungle gym area. Games room could’ve been more organized. Steve was very helpful. Cabin was comfortable and well kept thank you we will be back in December

My 6 year old son and I spent to fun filled two days at the Lodge. The river views are spectacular and loved our fishing from the bank and from the boats supplied by Umzimkulu. Many other activities kept my son busy. Steve was a wonderful, friendly host and we hope to spend some more time there in the future.

Relaxing getaway with friends. Enjoyed a river walk, sundowners on the deck, soothing massage and listening to the birds .Restaurant is closed, take all you need for your stay. Chalet has a fireplace, enjoyed reading, eating, relaxing and being welcomed by the owners cat, Cloe and dog, Jack. Lovely place.
