Umbhaba Lodge lies on a hillside overlooking the Sabie Valley, on the edge of the Drakensberg escarpment.
Umbhaba is a picture-perfect four-star lodge, ideal for a holiday of leisure or as a wedding or conference venue. Other facilities include an a la carte restaurant, a peaceful lounge area and the ever-popular safari-style Burn Out Bar. Relax in our crystal-clear rock pool and indulge your spirit in the tranquility amid perfectly manicured lawns. We also offer Lowveld Day-Out Activities such as day and night safaris, helicopter adventures, hot air balloon rides, hiking tours, fishing excursions and horse riding.
The nearby towns of Dullstroom or White River provide additional experiences and entertainment, while the peaceful surrounds of Umbhaba Lodge offer the ideal retreat after a long day of sight-seeing. The tranquility at Umbhaba, along with the seclusion of the bushveld, is the ideal departure point for excursions in to the Kruger National Park, the majestic Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window and Bourke’s Luck Pot Holes. The Kruger National Airport is minutes away.
The 30 Africa-inspired suites are tastefully decorated and temperature-controlled for your comfort. Rooms are surrounded by water features and lush subtropical gardens. The spacious family suites have a king size bed and two three quarter beds, providing a wonderful opportunity for families who enjoy traveling together. Private patios and balconies present a welcome opportunity for relaxing with a sundowner, while embracing the abundance of bird and animal life after a day of game viewing.
Our chapel with its breathtaking views and soft white curtain drapes billowing in the breeze.
With its palm-lined bridges and walkways, gushing water features and lush green gardens, the lodge offers an idyllic setting for a real and memorable Lowveld wedding. Unlike its Highveld counterparts, it’s a great option for winter weddings with warm days and comfortable night temperatures. The Ingwe function venue or on-site restaurant provide the perfect reception areas, with mouthwatering menus to fit your taste, style and budget, while our lakeside open air chapel can seat a total of a hundred wedding guests. After the reception, guests can retire to one of thirty spacious suites or one of our sparkling new family suites, all of which are temperature controlled.
Umbhaba Lodge is an attractive honeymoon option as it is within easy reach of the Kruger National Park, Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window and Bourke’s Luck Potholes
