Umkhumbi Game lodge in kzn


Game lodge in kzn

Umkhumbi is a small private game lodge in KZN, South Africa. We have
seven guest chalets, well spaced from each other and surrounded by
peaceful woodland in Kuleni Game Park near Hluhluwe. The game reserve
has much wildlife but does not have any of the scary animals on site (save for an occasional leopard..) and the lodge is unfenced, so the you can see animals from your window or whilst sitting on your veranda or in your outdoor dining area. You can walk or cycle on the trails around the lodge and take your binoculars for some excellent birding! Look no further if you are searching for an affordable game lodge or self-catering accommodation in Hluhluwe.

What people have to say


“Wunderbar! Besonders die Freundlichkeit von Emma, Anton und Harriet. Sehr gutes Essen. Sensationeller Sonnenuntergang. Die Nachtwanderung mit Harriet (Skorpione). Die Möglichkeit sich alleine auf gut ausgeschilderten Wegen frei im Gelände zu bewegen. Urspünglichkeit und Unkompliziertheit. Anton’s Wissen um die Tierwelt Südafrikas und die Schlangenvorführung. Unseren Kindern hat es auch sehr gut gefallen.”
