Fodor's Expert Review Hluhluwe River Lodge

Hluhluwe, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Overlooking False Bay Lake and the Hluhluwe River flood plain—follow signs from Hluhluwe village—this fantastic-value, family-owned lodge is the ideal base for visiting the game reserves and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. After a day spent game-viewing, canoeing, bird-watching, mountain biking, boating, fishing, or walking in the pristine sand forest, relax in your comfortable A-frame chalet or sit on your wooden deck overlooking the bush, the floodplain, and the lake. This lodge is the only one with direct access to the lake, but water activities are dependent on the seasonal rains. The food is excellent—wholesome country cooking. There are two family chalets available and children three and under stay free.
