Food, Venue, Staff, Accomodation, unspoilt beaches. What an amazing facility, that truly lived up to all the hype we had heard. The meals are out of this world, with variety and freshness of product, unthought of for such a remote location. Attention to detail from the staff was beyond expectation, and at many times, we forgot we were on a family holiday. Pricing and value for money cannot be beaten.

Spent an amazing 5 days at Umngazi with our 10 month old son & just loved it. The best part about the holiday was knowing that our son was in safe hands & being entertained while we enjoyed the nearby beaches and hikes. The food was incredible, both for us and for the children and the staff are so happy, friendly & helpful I would highly recommend Umngazi for all families, with babies and kids alike, so much to offer!!!

We stayed in stunning room 49C it was very private and beautiful views of the river and sea. The staff are all friendly and the food is really. We travelled from Scottburgh and unfortunately the rood became very bad from just before Flagstaff the pot holes are horrendous the road does improve a bit before you tun off to Umngazi but the those 12 kilometres to the hotel is very bad. So if you have back problems like I have give it some thought before you undertake the trip. I must say once you there it so laid back that you can just relax and enjoy
