    In Kuleni Nature Park, Hluhluwe, KwaZulu-Natal

Umthiba is a private lodge set in the heart of Kuleni Nature Park, a natural sand forest adjacent to Phinda Game Reserve, near St Lucia World Heritage Site in KwaZulu Natal, a mere 3 hour drive from Durban.

This comfortable lodge allows the visitor the opportunity to experience nature and wildlife at its pristine best from a deck chair on the verandah or while walking the many nature trails that traverse the diverse indigenous bush and grasslands.

The Park is home to wildebeest, giraffe, warthog, zebra and a large variety of antelope and with the abundance of birdlife is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Umthiba Bush Lodge is fully equipped for selfcatering and is suitable for couples as well as groups of family and friends.

Summer sunsets or cold winter nights, the open fire will add an amazing sphere to the already perfect starlit gaze.

  • We booked it for 5 nights for hubby's 60th on 1 Jan 2022. We enjoyed the entire experience of being so close to nature tremendously and hoping to go back again in the near future.
