About Ingwenya Lodge

The lodge's name Ingwenya derives from the Zulu word for crocodile. It was quite logical to choose a name that is indigenous to Zululand in this first World Heritage Site of South Africa. Ingwenya Lodge is situated on the outskirts of the residential area and the property borders the nature reserve. The surroundings are very peaceful and hippos often graze at the entrance of the lodge during the night.

The self-catering units are named after the five rivers of the St Lucia Estuary. Facilities include a swimming pool, air-conditioning in all rooms, Wi-Fi Internet, additional freezing facilities, DStv decoders, safes and a hiking trail that starts from the premises. The units are serviced daily.

                      Pool was not clean. The rooms had faults and unfinished work. The key hole cover was falling out whenever we closed the doors. The bathrooms have lime stains. Sink too small . Lighting very poor between the apartments. There is an unfriendly dog on the property which is not conducive for children. No access control therefore safety not guaranteed.

                      A bit over priced, I would recommend a per night price not per person. For 4 nights for my husband and my 4 kids over R11 000 . Otherwise it’s very neat, tidy and quite end of town.

                      We loved our stay at Ingwenya Lodge, the staff was friendly and the place was kept clean everyday. Madeleine was very helpful and friendly with a big hart. Our pets loved the 2km walk in walking distance from the lodge. We where close to the beach, restaurants, shops and things to do like the hippo and croc boat cruise, game drives, cheese farm and many more. We do recommend Ingwenya Lodge and will be returning very soon.

                      The 2 bedroom self catering unit had ample space. The facilities were kept clean and the units were in good condition. Definitely worth making your base of operations.
