Delicious food, informative game drive, relaxing spa and cosy main area. Meet the grumpy rhino, see zebras, giraffes, impalas and other animals, maybe even the mountain lion or leopard that roams freely.

The staff and all who worked there were all so friendly and catered to you beautifully! The rooms were really nice and well kept and the views were absolutely breathtaking!

What a wonderful weekend. The staff are extremely efficient, friendly and helpful - from the booking process right through to when we left. From Nombuso, LiIly, Faith and all the ladies in the restaurant that helped make our stay an absolute pleasure. This was my second trip and when the opportunity rises I will definitely be back

I suggest that the GPS direction on the website be updated. Put direction mark for easy references also I will suggest a buffet dinner is more prefarable and gives choices. Improvement on their wifi is required.

We had a lovely time at this beautiful African setting, experiencing great views the way one should in sunny Africa. The food and accommodation were very good and the overall atmosphere was like any safari experience for local and international guests.

Great getaway from the city. Friendly staff, Ms Lily was exceptional. The meals were delicious served in a beautiful setting.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just an hour's drive from Durban - or a 45 minute drive from Pietermaritzburg, Gwahumbe Game Lodge & Spa offers a wide variety of catered and self catered accommodation ranging from ultimate luxury to a rustic bush camp. We are "Wilderness on a Whim" - the perfect getaway to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the bush veld. Game drives are undoubtedly the best way to view our exceptional fauna & flora, offering the opportunity to get up close and personal with the game in a natural setting. As our reserve is relatively small, there is always an excellent chance for guests to view our variety of game, such as hippo, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra and many antelope species to name but a few. The Reserve enjoys an abundance of animals and birds. ... more   less
