Gary and Avril make you so welcome in their home and nothing is too much for them to make your stay fantastic. The home cooking is great although Avril's poached eggs could be better (sorry Avil your words lol) But seriuos the food is excellent the beds very enticing and comfortable after a hard days work. The bar fully stocked well was before we arrived and the jacuzi a great way to de stress

The lodge is a little paradise tucked away in a secluded place but with Gary and his drivers willing to drive you round never isolated. Looking forward to returning soon and meet up with good friends.

Given our location and what we'd heard about Jo'burg, we were very dubious at the possible state of the hotel that had been booked for us.

But we couldn't have been more wrong! The Umthombo Guest House is owned by an English couple, Gary & Avril who made us very welcome.

It was more like a mini resort with a pool, sauna. The 8/9 rooms had all been individually themed and classily decorated - we had the elephant room, the lion room and the rhino room. The food (we had D,B&B) was lovely homecooked variety of English and local dishes.

We'd sort of been abandoned by the family who were "hosting" us and as we had no hire car, Gary offered to take us out and about to the local places of interest (cheetah and croc park, casino). We obviously paid him for this, but it was very reasonably and we would have been stuck there for a week had he not.

I felt very secure here, they have the walls, barbed wire, bars, CCTV etc which is the norm for this area, but their staff appeared to be quite trustworthy and nothing was too much trouble. I'd highly recommend this place if you're heading out that way
