Room was adequate and clean. Food was nice. The rest needs quite a bit of tlc. Especially the bird park can do with a big refurbishment. It looks shabby and many cages were empty. Same goes for the kids area.

Umfolozi Lodge is a very casual and laid back place. Entering reception you have to navigate to the restaurant to check in. Not too far as the lodge doesn't have too many rooms. If thatch roofs and rustic is what you're after then this is the place. It's not upmarket but modern but comfortable. The bird park and koi pond were amazing! The kids loved it. An ostrich was doing a dance for us when we went to visit and a goat was at the kids at the lovely jungle gym next to the rabbit and hamster enclosure. The place is very well taken care of. The dining area and bar has a pool table outside and is cosy. The food is reasonably priced and the staff are very friendly. Was a nice short visit. We were very lucky to see the giraffe, zebra and buck at a reserve that cut across the public road which made the stay worth it! The hostess will tell you more about the free drivethrough :)

The road to the accommodation was very bad, the distance wasn't right. The state of the accommodation wasn't in line with it's price. We had a lot of accommodations that weren't so expensive and were much better. The bathroom wasn't so great.
You could smell the animals in the restaurant.
It was a little bit disapointing.

Poor. 2 out of 5
