About Umfolozi River Lodge and Bird Park
Situated in a tranquil, scenic environment with its spectacular variety of birds, Umfolozi River Lodge is situated on 4 hectares of land, which borders a private game reserve and is approximately 30 minutes from St Lucia world heritage site, Richards Bay international airport, Mapelane beach and the world-renowned Umfolozi / Hluhluwe Game Reserve. Umfolozi River Lodge and Bird Park is an ideal opportunity to escape from busy everyday life.
We are running on generator power only from 7h00 - 8h00 and 17h00 - 19h00. Enjoy light meals and beverages at our restaurant. (Needs to be pre-arranged). Plan your day with boat tours on Lake St. Lucia, Game drives, horse Trails, whale watching, kayaking safaris, cultural village, deep sea fishing and a choice of three golf courses nearby. Along the natural and unspoiled coastline, golden beaches stretch as far as the eye can see, lapped by warm blue waters from the Indian Ocean and bounded by the world's highest vegetated sand dunes.
Whales and schools of dolphins frequent this spectacular coastline, also the natural breeding habitat for the leather back and loggerhead turtles. These waters are renowned for big game fishing and the much sought after marlin are landed here. The warm Mozambique current attracts a kaleidoscope of colourful tropical fish that feed off coral reefs.
