A mere 15 minute meander from Pietermaritzburg, Ukuthula Lodge stands true to its title. From isiZulu, Ukuthula translates to ‘peace and calm’ and this 300-hectare game farm is definitely rest at its best. In the Karkloof foothills overlooking Albert Falls Dam, the view from each thatched villa is magnificent; from open grassland and African bushveld to steep valleys and gorges.

Accommodation is offered in six thatched chalets, all elegantly decorated and furnished in neutral African colours making them a restful and relaxing space. The airy rooms open downstairs onto wooden viewing decks where you will find the wildlife almost close enough to touch. Each unit sleeps four guests. While the chalets are self-catering, meals can also be selected from the lodge’s wholesome farm menu and enjoyed in the privacy of your chalet, at the one of the viewing decks or in the farmhouse dining room. Delicious picnic baskets and barbeques can also be provided on request.

A favourite spot is the Waterhole Boma perched on the hillside overlooking one of our dams, where you will see our shy marsh terrapins sunning themselves on the banks while red bishops flit among the reeds and the larger mammals from the tallest giraffe to the smallest baby warthogs gather to drink. Another idyllic spot is the Otter’s Den River Boma, where the otter’s spend lazy afternoons playing in the river with the call of the African fish eagle resounding overhead. A perfect place to relax with a book, do some fishing and enjoy sundowners.

Ukuthula Lodge’s thriving wildlife includes nyala, impala, zebra, kudu, waterbuck, reedbuck, giraffe, duiker, wildebeest, red hartebeest, eland, otters, black-backed jackal, serval, caracal, and genet, to name but a few.

Pietermaritzburg South Africa

Pietermaritzburg Self-catering Accommodation

This wonderful little city is often called 'the last outpost of the British Empire' by admirers and detractors alike. It's not really true, but its many red brick Victorian buildings do give the town a rather genteel air.

Situated in a hollow surrounded by hills, Pietermaritzburg lies on the edge of the rather lovely green Midlands, which is so well endowed with craft shops, restaurants, trout hatcheries, boutique breweries, cheese factories and every other form of bucolic delight that it has formed itself into a route called the Midlands Meander. Other nearby attractions include the scenic Howick Falls, and the Karkloof treetop canopy tour. There are excellent mountain biking trails in the area, some game farms and it’s not far from the Drakensberg. Cultural attractions include a number of museums, township tours and nearby battlefields. An interesting monument is the statue of Mahatma Gandhi on the spot where he was arrested for riding in a 'whites only' train carriage. He claimed that his career of passive resistance started then.

Pietermaritzburg is just short of 100km from Durban, with which it has very intimate ties. These are most notable in two very tough races, which are run between the cities. The Comrades Marathon is 98km long and follows the old national road. The other race is the Dusi Canoe Marathon, which is run on the Umsinduzi River every year.

This wonderful little city is often called 'the last outpost of the British Empire' by admirers and detractors alike. It's not really true, but its many red brick Victorian buildings do give the town a rather genteel air.
