Travellers' Choice
Just an hour's drive from Durban - or a 45 minute drive from Pietermaritzburg, Gwahumbe Game Lodge & Spa offers a wide variety of catered and self catered accommodation ranging from ultimate luxury to a rustic bush camp. We are "Wilderness on a Whim" - the perfect getaway to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the bush veld. Game drives are undoubtedly the best way to view our exceptional fauna & flora, offering the opportunity to get up close and personal with the game in a natural setting. As our reserve is relatively small, there is always an excellent chance for guests to view our variety of game, such as hippo, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra and many antelope species to name but a few. The Reserve enjoys an abundance of animals and birds.

We really appreciated all the effort and assistance with a very last minute reservation. We will definitely return when in the area again and will sure to bring more guests along. The views from the Eagle's nest was just breathtaking and wished we could stay there longer.

Myself and three close friends took advantage of your Mothers Day special in May. We all had a thoroughly stunning time. The massages were excellent! We will all, remember this special day for many years to come. Thank you Gwahumbe!

The receptionist is a very sweet, accomodating and hospitable young lady who is passionate about what she does. The massage itself was so amazing. I have had a massage with Mangwanani, Spa Durban and Heaven on Earth. And Mangwanani according to my experience was the best on all the Spas i've ever done. And Gwahumbe has taken that spot. I've never had anything like it. Thank you so much, i loved my visit to the game lodge.
