Mvubu River Lodge is located in Pongola Game Reserve in South Africa’s beautiful KwaZulu Natal province. The lodge lies on a ridge overlooking the banks of the Pongola River, providing gorgeous views of surrounding reserve, which is home to a variety of big game species. These include elephant, rhino, leopard, and giraffe.
The lodge is made up of comfortable thatched chalets, each air-conditioned with en-suite bathrooms. The chalets are constructed using stone, reeds, wood, and thatch, giving them a wonderfully rustic feel. Facilities include minibars, tea-and-coffee stations, and private verandas. The lodge’s main area features a bar, TV lounge, boma, curio shop, and pool- perfect for relaxing after a day of game-viewing. Exciting safari activities offer the chance to explore the reserve, and include game drives, guided walks, boating safaris, and rhino tracking.
