I've stayed at Wendy's for both work and pleasure, and have been so sad to leave after each visit. The rooms are comfortable, gardens green and lovely, and food delicious. Most of all, Jenny and her wonderful staff make guests feel so at home -- arranging details of your stay beforehand, making sure everything is comfortable throughout, and providing recommendations for nearby spots to visit on your onward journey. Wish we could have stayed much longer!

Our first time at Wendy's Country Lodge and hopefully not our last. We were on our way from Durban to Tembe Elephant Park and this makes for a great break. Gavin and Jenny are friendly and enthusiastic hosts who help make your stay as rewarding as possible. Gather round the bar in the evening before dinner and Gavin creates a 'party' atmosphere where guests soon become friends. In fact all the staff are very friendly and are a great team. Dinner on our second night was rudely interrupted by a storm but the staff quickly moved us all inside with no fuss (by the way the gardens are a lovely place to take dinner and a glass of wine). Wendy's is a clean and comfortable guest lodge and we would heartily recommend a stay if you are in that area.

Super comfy beds and lovely breakfast
Helpful caring staff
30 min from St Lucia tho we were told 20 and it’s not great driving back from St Lucia after 6.15pm. Road is dark and drivers aren’t the best
Accommodation is basic and clean
Yucky Persian style carpets next to beds give us the creeps
Bathrooms old
Don’t book excursions through the lodge if you are from SA - google them yourselves

You won't get a warmer welcome than at Wendy's Country Lodge in Mtubatuba plus the food is delicious and well presented. Gavin and Jenny Udal are wonderful hosts.
Wendy's is perfectly positioned for visiting Umfolozi/Hluhluwe, Isimangaliso, Cape Vidal, St Lucia, etc, etc or as a stop-over when travelling to Tembe Elephant Park or Mozambique. Gavin is a very knowledgeable tour guide and can take you to any of the local parks.
Wendy's is positioned in Riverview on the outskirts of Mtubatuba in a secure gated community. The garden is fabulous and full of birds and there is a pool for the hot Zululand days.
We have no hesitation in recommending Wendy's Country Lodge.

Room Tip: We had a suite with its own patio. Lovely to sit out on with an early morning coffee or tea and listen to the birdlife.

We stayed here for 6 nights. Lovely accommodation in a gated community, ideally situated for the Wetlands and Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Park. The owners Jenny and Gavin run a very friendly establishment, meeting guests every evening in their bar giving the opportunity to meet the other guests and discuss the days adventures. We made lots of friends over our stay. Food delicious. Very kindly they sourced sugar free desserts for my diabetic husband. Would definitely recommend.
