Certificate of Excellence
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.
