Situated on 13 hectares of lush forested hillside overlooking the Umfolozi flood plain and bordering on a private game reserve where wildlife can be spotted, Umfolozi River Lodge is the ideal getaway for both businessman and family alike. While the location which is approximately 30 minutes from St. Lucia, Richards Bay, Mapelane beach and the renowned Imfolozi / Hluhluwe Game Reserve makes us the perfect base from which to explore all that Zululand has to offer.

FUNCTIONS AND EVENTS
We also cater for school groups as well groups, weddings, year end functions, birthday parties and church groups. Let us plan these events while you sit back and relax.
The Umfolozi River Lodge is based only a half an hour drive from some of the most challenging and vegetated 4x4 areas in South Africa. There are obstacles and hills with difficulty levels ranging from 1 to 6, where you can put your vehicle to the ultimate test, whether you get a thrill from driving up hills or very steep down hills - we do trips for the whole family or for advanced drivers. We will take a break with a braai at a spot where breathtaking views, such as whales passing in season, can be enjoyed over the ocean and indigenous coastal forest.
If arranged, a friendly guide will be able to supply you with anything from drinks, food, professional advice to recovery assistance. Come in your own vehicle or let us drive you. This adventure is highly recommended for team building and will be an experience not forgotten soon.
