Review of Umfula Resort
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Dec 2017
I went to the premises for a weekend away with family. Booked 3 chalets for a total of 9 people and the place was amazing.

It is clean and well furnished, The environment is very peaceful with nice kiddies play area and pool, there is water body for boat launching which is fun.

Pricewise, they are very reasonable for chalets, camping and day visitors.

I genuinely was very pleased with the place and my only drawback was the lack of fly control on the premises. As much as I understand that flies are natural invaders, there is room to improve on limiting their presence on the premises.

Other than that, It is perfect for a nice time away.

    Great place for camping! Bathrooms could do with an upgrade! Definitely need to sort out the hot water issue!

    Overall friendly staff. Great camp sites. Would return again in the future.

    Bar can be a nuisance as there is no real cut off time.

    We camped at Umfula Resort for 4 days recently and what a pleasant experience wed had! The camp sites are all well grassed and cared for and ample shade is provided by many trees. The ablution facilities are also kept neat and tidy. All staff on the resort is professional and very helpful and we did not encounter any problems even over the weekend when it was 90% full. We will return to this resort and already looking forward to it.

    Pleasantly surprised. Late check-in was quick and efficient. Had a braai shortly after arriving with a view of the Vaal river settling in to our comfortable 6 sleeper chalet. Chalet was well equipped, clean and comfortable. Other amenities available include 3 swimming pools, kiddes play-gym, fishing and hiking. Took a 5km hike, tried our hand and fishing and had an awesome weekend. Staff were friendly and flexible to our needs. Would definitely recommend Umfula for a getaway with friends/family.
