About Thembe Eco Lodge

Thembe Eco Lodge is situated on a hillside overlooking the Kwa-Mazambane Reserve in the northern most region of the Maputaland Wetlands of KwaZulu-Natal. This setting lends itself to the most beautiful view over the valley below, and from some of the rooms you are able to see the third, and biggest, lake of Kosibay. The entire lodge has a well-kept lawn and a range of plants which all complement the natural feel of the surrounding nature, hence the "eco" in the name. It is also the place for fishermen, families, groups, or businessmen who want to refocus and relax. The self-catering units are comfortable and well-designed and offer all the linen and utensils you may need and some has air-conditioning, bathroom with shower, barbeque area and a deck from which guests can sit and watch the sun rise over the African landscape. The tiled floors offer great relief from the sand outside and help in keeping the rooms looking their best at all times.

                  Very accommodating and friendly hosts. Peaceful and lovely view, with the sound of the ocean in the distance.

                  I shall not recommend visiting Thembe Eco Lodge until thecurrent management is replaced (although friendly and helpful). The lodge in onsale and hopefully the new owners will fix it. In a nutshell: TV is not working(“ gusts damage the remotes so we stop providing them”); Air-condition toosmall for the room size thus useless; very basic crockery and of the poorestquality; the swimming pool is suitable for few, very small, kids only. Althoughthere is no mention of vehicle requirements I don’t see how a sedan will makeit through the deep send treks…no need for 4x4 but at least a medium size SUV.
