“Perfect place”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We have spent a wonderfull days with Ingrid and Eric.
The lodge is really beautiful and I really love the cooking of Ingrid, and the decoration of antiques in the lodge.
It was an incredible experience, to ear the stories and adventures of Eric and Ingrid.
Thank you very much for share them with us.

Return visitors - and it was worth it again. Good food, kids are well looked after, high relaxation factor. Just regret we didn't go for longer walks this time. The flowers were in bloom and everything was beautiful. Go here. You wont regret it.

The Ufumene Game Lodge is the perfect place for families and couples. The expansive lodge and resort bring over 800 animals to your doorstep, which includes the resort pool and delightful lodge setting to see the best South Africa has to offer. The rooms are beautiful and 5 star standard and the Hosts bring the adventure of Africa with personalized tours of the outback bushland. The service, food, and fine wine make for a great stay! You must go if your on the Garden Route- make it a destination!!

Room Tip: All the guest rooms are 5 star!!

What a magical place. The food was outstanding and the Fredericks family were perfect hosts. Nadja took such care of Natalie on horseback. The highlight for me was to see the Sable come for their food. The rooms are luxurious and huge. A visit to uFumene is a real treat.

Dear Ingrid, Dear Eric, thank you again for a wonderful stay at U´fumene. I really enjoyed it, especially the wonderful atmosphere with you and the incradible landscape. I was lucky to be at your place, while it was raining two days, so i could see the vegetation growing afterwards. we did great gamedrives, had nice chats, we did some hunting, and i really could relax from the daily routine! thank you and see you soon! paul

We already stayed at Ufumene twice and it is a little piece of heaven. The main lodge only has three spacious and very tastefully decorated bedrooms which makes it easy to relax and feel at home. The farm has various game animals including giraffes and Sable which one can discover via foot, on horseback or with one of the hosts during a game drive. The hosts Ingrid, Eric & Nadja made as feel at home and spoilt us during our stay - including kiddies entertainment for our 4-year old daughter which included the daily hunt to find the chicken eggs for breakfast. The home cooked food is fantastic, most of the ingredients are fresh from the farm...yummy!
We can really recommend Ufumene and we will be back there soon.

The perfect place to get away from all the city buzz, totally relaxing. A warm welcome from the Eric and Ingrid (the owners). Great conversations in front of the fireplace, the owners have a wealth of knowledge and experience. We had a wonderful game drive in the morning and saw various animals, Ingrid shared her knowledge regarding the different plants and what happens in different seasons and how the animals adapt to the different conditions. Back at the house we had a walk around to see the different livestock and veggie garden. The food was delicious (best pork belly I have ever tasted), my special request of cupcakes was well executed as well :). The rooms were extraordinary, spacious with great décor.
