What people are saying

Best hidden gem in Underberg

Best place we have ever stayed and we are serial holidaymakers. It’s a home away from home with all the comforts. The gorgeous views, the deck, the river and tubing, the hiking, the fireplace, the tranquility and peace all made it an exceptionally memorable stay. The fact that it is dog friendly was a huge plus as well. We loved every minute and we will definitely be back in a few months again. Our new favorite holiday spot!!! Highly recommended

Beautiful and homely!

My partner and I had such a lovely weekend at the Ndwana River Lodge, a very relaxing getaway. We loved that the property was safely closed off so we didn’t have to worry about where the dogs were. Beautiful views, very homely, good value for money.

We left with full hearts and the best memories.

The view from the main bedroom was awesome. The bed and pillows were so comfy. The kitchen was well equipped. The view was spectacular. The location is perfect. Thembie is just the sweetest. We loved the endless options of walks on the farm. A highlight for us was swimming and hanging out at the waterfall pool and down at the river.

Excellent stay – hidden gem

Cozy’d up by the inside fireplace, the kitchen facilities had everything needed and more. Four people bathing and showering with enough hot water and great pressure for all. The view was
phenomenal. Warm electric blankets during winter were a great touch. A true escape.
