About Overwin Lodge

Overwin Lodge is a secluded retreat built in 1924. It perfectly captures the spirit of the Zulu Kingdom and overlooks the Tshaneni Mountain.

The lodge offers guests a choice of staying in one of the Chalets or the Family Cottage. Each Chalet has three bedrooms that offer a queen-size bed or single beds and an en-suite bathroom with a shower only. Each unit also has a kitchen that is equipped with a fridge, two-plate stove, microwave, cutlery and crockery. There are braai facilities and guests can relax on the sun deck and enjoy the view of the mountains. The Family Cottage has two interleading bedrooms with a queen-size and two single beds respectively; they share the use of a bathroom with a shower only.

Guests can cool down in the communal swimming pool, make use of the tennis courts, go on a walk or do some birdwatching. A short drive will get guests to various game parks and we can arrange diving at Sodwana Bay, boat trips and elephant tracking on request.

          The three-bedroomed stone house, high in the Ubombo mountains is quiet and peaceful and has a good view. A wonderful place to rest and revive one's soul. Warm welcome from the hosts.

          We got taken by Google maps to the completely wrong place over terrible sand roads. The posting should say next to Bethesda Hospital. There wasn't a stove or pots so be prepared if you want self catering.

          We stayed 2 nights as a family at Overwin Lodge.  What a lovely place, and such hospitable people.  David & Dawn are really lovely people.  We enjoyed our stay and will be sure to be back.

          Although the owners were not there - we were wonderfully attended to and enjoyed our stay.
