Me and my familiy stayed here for one night, and despite rain during both game drives we had a fantastic experience at the Umzolozolo Lodge in Nambiti Reserve. The lodges was beautiful, the staff took great care of us and the food was absolutely lovely! Nothing negative to say really. You get value for your money at this place indeed...

A last minute booking got us in at Umzolozolo. Arriving at the lodge, we were suprised by the beautifull surroundings of the bush and the lodge itself! From the reception to departure nothing was to much for the staff of Umzolozolo. All the meals was great, breakfast, lunch and dinner!!! All of the staff was friendly and our babysitter was...

Umzolozolo Safari Lodge: Everybody Loves Raymond Under a darkening sky where late afternoon was soon to become dusk, storm clouds gathered, and the light faded fast. This combination made for the sort of light that I find difficult to drive in. Not yet dark but no clear daylight to be guided by. A place in the day where the mind...

At Umzolozolo Lodge we were met by the staff who would be our hosts for the next 3 days. We had the experience of having 2 different guides, namely Rowan and Rheinhard who have...

Wonderful lodge, exceptional staff, food was awesome and the lodges where delightful. Could not fault it in anyway. Plus having capacity for only 18 people made it very personal and intimate. The whole experience made you feel special. Can't wait to go back.

What can I say about our stay that doesn't include every superlative I know. First off directions were easy to follow being in outback Africa you want to be confident in where you are going. Arrived, parked under cover, which is important considering the storms. Met almost immediately by a friendly guide who drove us to the lodge. All self...

TripAdvisor Umzolozolo My wife and I visited Umzolozolo for our Honeymoon after friends of ours recommended the Lodge. We were greeted by a very charming Ranger by the name of Raymond. He was our designated guide, game driver and Lodge host the entire 5 days we stayed. Raymond, along with all the Rangers, are qualified in several fields of Wildlife,...
