We have cots available for infants.

The team at Umkhumbi strive to make your stay in Hluhluwe as comfortable as possible. We are a small bush lodge in a private nature reserve and the atmosphere here is relaxed and friendly. We welcome families – children of all ages are welcome and we have a selection of games and puzzles, as well as a pool table at the bar for them to enjoy while you relax and watch the sunset! They can also play with Shadow and Copper our resident Staffies who will greet you with a wag of the tail and a doggie smile.

Accommodation information

We have 12 rooms – all are air-conditioned and spacious with twin or double beds. Relax on the veranda with views overlooking pristine unspoilt Sandforest. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, bath and separate shower. Help yourself to the complimentary tea and coffee facilities and there’s a fridge for you to store food and drink.

The rooms are all private and quiet, but some are closer to the central area than others. Please ask if you would like a unit close by (if you have small children for example) or further away.
