Itwas an absolute bliss!For a bush lodge to have everything in place is Gem! The outside shower over looking the bush it’s insanely beautiful the hot water makes it enjoyable even in winter. Mia the stand in Manger was our fairy Godmother she met our very need & beyond. They organised me a birthday picnic on the deck. Fabian was away yet he kept in touch all the time to ensure our stay was as we wanted it to be. Rina is a gourmet chef; her dishes are 5 star! She makes the best Pap, Samp & Lamb shank ever the best ever tasted. Everything was absolutely magical. We where surrounded by wild life throughout our stay it was a piece of heaven on earth. Every staff member was incredible they were willing to move mountains to ensure our stay is the best. I am absolute at awe 5 star world hotels don’t even offer what this place offers. We are definitely coming back. Our Game drive was a cherry on top, our ranger was super patient and wanted to give the best experience. You can clearly see there is great team work and that everyone was happy and content with working there. If I could I can write a book I would, there is so much brilliance her that we need to share. Our country is beautiful our people are beautiful. I love travelling & I have never experienced like this. In the estate was super friendly. places like this are a rare find. The reviews are a true reflection of the perfection this masterpiece of art is 😊! It was a perfect couples birthday getaway! I was even baked a birthday cake, OMG what else can one ask for!

The service is excellent, place is super clean I carried domestos wipes because I practically clean everything but I couldn’t find dirt at all in this place. The bed was very comfortable, room was beautifully scented I loved the outside shower and the private patio. The view at the breakfast table was amazing, we saw animals come to drink water close by. The hospitality is world class! If you’re looking for a tranquil luxurious getaway and still enjoy nature’s beauty I would recommend Ukuthula bush lodge. My first time out since lockdown and I absolutely enjoyed every moment. Hats off to Fabian and team.

Everything is great in Ukuthula Bush Lodge: the lodge itself is beautiful, surrounded by nature, the rooms are very comfortable and the decoration is the perfect mix of modern and traditional. The staff was very friendly, and the activities organized with the help of the lodge were amazing. I enjoyed the fact that this is a family owned lodge, it really gives it a more personal atmosphere ! We hope to be able to come back soon!

We stayed at Ukuthula Bush Lodge for only one night while we were on our way to the Kruger NP. We were pleasantly surprised by the location of the lodge as it is on a wildlife estate with a lot of wild animals. The lodge itself is beautiful and blends in perfectly with its surroundings. We were welcomed by the owners and shown to our room. The room was spacious, clean and had a wonderful bathroom including an outdoor shower. We had dinner and breakfast at the lodge and both were delicious! We really wished we had known that this lodge was as good as it is earlier so we could have stayed longer. In the future we will definitely stay here again (and longer)!
