Description

umThiba is a private lodge set in the heart of Kuleni Game Park - a natural sand forest adjacent to the Phinda Game Reserve and in close proximity to the St Lucia World Heritage Site. The park is home to wildebeest, giraffe, warthog, zebra and a large variety of antelope. With the abundance of bird life, it is also a birdwatcher's paradise.

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 that make up the park. umThiba is fully equipped for self-catering and is suitable for couples as well as groups of family and friends.

      Absolutely beautiful accommodation, with everythign you need for a comfortable stay, set in the small game reserve with giraffe, zebra, wildebeast & plenty of buck.  Totally recommend a stay & we will be back!

      26 December 2014

      Brilliant facility! Loved every minute of it!

      13 October 2014

      This is really a great spot, hidden away in a great little reserve. Will def be back here. So glad we found this little piece of heaven!

      09 December 2013

      We went up there with little expectations as we are accustomed to pictures being prettier than the actual premises, boy did we get a surprise! The staff were friendly, the house equipped with everything we needed and the Kuleni game park offers such a tranquil environment, pity we didn't get a chance to take walks! It is an absolute 'must do again'

      11 July 2013

      umThiba is a really beautiful spot, the accommodation is stunning, we loved the house and the outside set-up...it was all fantastic. It's a great place for the kids to play, loads of space, and the grownups don't have to worry about them getting dragged off by a lion!! We did hope to see more game. Perhaps we were just unlucky but we had no game AT ALL around the house or in the garden. Based on this, I would say this is the perfect spot for a beautiful relaxed getaway, but perhaps not for the avid game viewer. We went into umfolozi every day, so we still got our wild animal fix and then came back to relax at the beautiful umThiba. Overall, we loved it and will def be back. And if some animals decide to visit, that would be an added bonus.
