Hluhluwe is situated between iSimangaliso Wetland Park and Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park , an area known for its national parks, natural diversity and cultural heritage. The variety of habitats within the area is one of the reasons why it is one of the prime birding destinations in South Africa. Timber, sugar and pineapples are intensively grown in the area which produces over 90% of South Africa’s queen pineapples. A big area surrounding the Hluhluwe area is also made up of cattle farms and game farms. Hluhluwe is an ideal place to explore the nearby Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve. It is here that the White Rhino was saved from extinction. A visit to this world renowned game reserve will bring you into contact with the Big Five as well as encounters of the natural kind with a wide variety of other indigenous game. Being based here at Hluhluwe Country Cottages offers a convenient base for day trips to St.Lucia / Cape Vidal or north to Sodwana Bay / Mkuze Game Reserve. The World Heritage site of the Greater St.Lucia Wetland Park boasts five distinctive eco-systems, ranging from sub-tropical seas to grassy plains. It is also home to the some of the highest vegetated sand dunes in the world.
  • Beautiful garden, as well as the house.

  • Craig is a very nice and friendly guy, always there to answer our questions. He even organised a game drive for us and paid it in advance! The house was huge for three people, it was just to cold to use the jacuzi;-) And the whole place Is part of an Organisation that gives hundreds of local Zulu people work! Go there!

    Sven2018-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • A great spot to stay and explore the natural beauty around Hluhluwe. The national park is just a 30 minute drive and the False Bay nature reserve just 15 mins. A quiet and secluded chalet with everything you need for self-catering. There's also a charming restaurant on the same property with great breakfast / lunch options and outstanding coffee. Good value all round. We certainly hope to return someday.

  • Lovely cottage very conveniently located just outside of Hluhluwe. Great place to stay!

    Craig2017-06-16T00:00:00Z

  • This is a well thought out space, comfortable bed, great hot shower, neat kitchen space and if we had come prepared we could have had a braai (all fuel etc seemed to be there). We enjoyed our stay.

    Bob2018-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent value for money and the chalets were fabulous! Have everything you need and perfect for a weekend in Hluhluwe. Added extra touches which were greatly appreciated was the wood and charcoal. I felt safe and we had beautiful scenery looking into a farm with smaller game. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary items and the chalet was spotless. Other offerings on the premises are a restaurant and shop with curios so if you ever left something behind you have back up. I was very impressed with the value and service included so will definitely be back! Add hat to the sightings of 4 of the big 5 and all in all a stunning weekend! Thank you Craig.

    Olivia2018-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely newly built bnb in Hluhlwe, it's a work in progress that invites you to stay longer. The rooms are spacious and finely furnished. The dining area over looks the beautiful landscape and the breakfast certainly compels you to eat like a king. It's only a stones throw away from the imfolozi game park and surrounded by numerous restaurants if you wish to have supper else where. And the price is well worth the stay. Definitely using this bnb again!

    Simisiwe2018-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 2 nights at Msitu Kwetu Lodge over Easter. It was our base for accessing the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Park, a mere 12km away. The room was smart, neat and fresh with modern luxuries like aircon, wi fi and select dstv channels. Great breakfast served on patio. Very friendly and flexible staff. Patio was a bit congested during breakfast. Overall, comfortable, quiet, clean and value for money.

    Melani2018-04-01T00:00:00Z

  • Cosy room in a very quiet and safe area. Nice view over the landscape. The host family is incredibly kind and helpfull. Great breakfast. Our room was next to where the family lives and it's not at all isolated so you can hear them pretty well. It didnt bother us much since we stayed only for one night.

    Ivana2018-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • David is a very nice host. He does all what he can to please you. Our room had a beautiful view. When we went there the lodge was not finished. There is work in progress but this was not an issue

    Nadine2018-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Grande propriété sécurisée.Nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement par Marcus. Jolie chambre donnant sur la terrasse équipée de fauteuils permettant de se relaxer. Lit immense très confortable. Possibilité de dîner sur la terrasse ou d'avoir un petit déjeuner à emporter pour un safari au lever du jour. Marcus et le personnel ont été très prévenants et ont rendu notre séjour très agréable. Une excellente adresse !

  • Tracy runs a clean, well equipped and appointed B&B very conveniently close to Hulhluwe-Imfolozi and relatively close to Mkhuze. All communication was prompt and efficient.

  • Tracey and her husband were wounderfull hosts. They are very warmhearted and friendly. We felt to be in good hands. The rooms are nicely done up and the breakfast was delicious. We had a very pleasent stay in the fever tree guest house.

    Sinja2014-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A great place close to Hluhluwe. A warm welcome and a very good advice on how to see the best of Hluhluwe and St. Lucia. We will come back when we visit South Africa again

    Jeroen2014-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tracey welcomed me wonderfully afyer a long hot day driving through the SA bush. I was exhausted and was immediately asked to join her and her guests for a great braai dinner. Just lovely. The room was great - top notch aircon (wow was that welcome) and super- comfortable bed. Can't wait to be back :-)

    Nick2016-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Tracey is very helpful and always willing to make you feel comfortable.

    José2016-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Tracy was a very friendly and obliging host. She gave us many recommendations concerning trips around the town. She also booked our safari, which was perfectly organized. The breakfast was delicious and the location all in all is very comfortable and lovely decorated.

    Laura2014-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Tracey and Alec (as well as Coco, Bogey and Schnuckiputzi) made us feel at home right from the beginning. We enjoyed very much the so often eye-opening conversations about almost everything, the LCHF meals prepared mainly from Traceys organic garden veggies and from the local butcher (e.g. the venison wors). We saw the game park for which Traceys premises is very well located. We always felt safe. The days at Tracey and Alec definetely were more than just bed and bath. Thanks for everything.

    Martin2016-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Tracys! She was very kind and helped us where we needed it. The room was very beautiful and clean and we would love to stay there again :)

  • Surina and Johannes are the perfect host. They are so friendly, lovely and helpful people. We enjoyed the stay at their place very much. It is so quiet and excellent for relaxing, but also close to different game parks. We are sure to come back one time and we recommend this place highly for everyone. Hanspeter and Anna

    Hanspeter2018-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really great stay there. Surina and her husband are really friendly and gave us a lot of tipps about Cape Town. Every room is unique and really nice, I would recommend it to everyone!

    Valerie2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • You always take a chance, when you book a real Airbnb experience, by actually staying with someone in their own home. You can just hope to get along. With Surina and Johannes it al came natural. We arrived and they immediately made us feel welcome and at home. It was like visiting good friends, without it getting to cheesy. With johannes and Surina you choose for the real Airbnb. And for us that’s an absolute plus, that can’t be beaten by any anonymous hotel or apartment. Thanks for all the hospitality! Hope to see you again!

    Onno2018-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time with Surina and Johannes! They are really nice people, they make you feel welcome like at home. The house is amazing and everything is very clean. I would definitely come back next time in SA!

    Arianna2018-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The whole house was built by the landlord himself. Very enthusiastic landlord, chatting with the landlord very happy. Great room. And had the privilege of visiting the landlord's studio.

    Ning2017-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Was a great stay. Surina and her husband are super friendly and take time for their guests. We were at the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park during the day and Surina did our laundry and in the evening Surina and her husband invited us to the barbecue. It was a dream and enriched our trip

    Andreas2017-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great Airbnb, my friends and I felt like home... Or even better! Surina and Johannes are super hosts. They were super available and help us out with everything. They even prepared delicious home made pastries for our breakfast. I will definitely go back to their place!

  • Tracey has such a comfortable and charming guest house. We were able to get a great amount of local knowledge from her, especially in relation to the Hluhluwe/ Imfolozi Game Park. This is a fantastic location to stay at if you wish to visit the park. A good supermarket, petrol station, etc. are also very close. Tracey is a very welcoming & accommodating host and I believe that she will always provide a great experience, and the “complete package”. Would definitely stay there again.

    2019 Special - Book 2 nights, get 3rd night free!!!!! My place is close to parks and art and culture. You’ll love my place because of the location. My place is good for solo adventurers and couples. Relax in the Bush, enjoy the wonderful view surrounded by Macadamia groves and indigenous birds. With a wonderful atmosphere and 50km away from Mtubatuba and an hour away from Sodwana Bay.
    It's a bird lovers paradise and with open nights the sky lights up with stars. If you are lucky you can hear the Fish Eagle cry. A buffet style continental breakfast is also available for an additional R45pp; cereals, toast, eggs(2pp), coffee and tea, may vary depending on availability. A Meal-of-the-Day is also available for R75 per person, this is Supper only and will vary from day-to-day.
    With allot of surrounding features from the Cheetah program to the Hluhluwe–iMfolozi Park. The area is known for its pineapples and timber. The Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is under 30km. St. Lucia is about 60km. Cape Vidal and Sodwana Bay is an hour's drive away.
  • The place is very close to the emdoneni cheetahs project and quite easy to find. Ida was very helpful and welcoming.

    Sonia2017-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. Large house, friendly cats and dogs. Comfortable bed. Very hospitable owners. Ooh and she's a great cook as well :D It seems like the place is in the middle of nowhere, but it actually is very central. Close to st lucia, hluhluwe imofolozi park & iSimangaliso wetland park. There's also a cheetah sanctuary and a zulu village very close to the place.

    Stephanie2017-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing host, Ida is just the most kind and caring person you'll meet. The room was great and spotlessly clean. We had a lovely time, thank you Ida for everything.

    Rita2018-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • It is not a five star, of course. More a backpacker’s. The house has something of a morbid charm, but you have everything you need, plenty of space and Ida’s gentle company, if you want. You can smell the soil - especially when it rains, have the sound of insects during the night and the singing of the birds in the morning. If you go to Bo’s Paradise, you will make a different experience from what you are used to. The place is offside from civilization and noisy roads. You should be an animal lover (there are five dogs and four cats) and not too picky. Then you will enjoy your stay as we did.

    Bettina2018-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Ida & her family's place was a great pick, for our first days in the region! Ida was highly available, kept contact and even came to escort us to the house when we arrived, despite being quite late in the evening and when it was already dark. This was very appreciated. Dinners were home made and good. Ida was also very kind to lend us their Jeep for our safari. Must say she represented the perfect host!! Many thanks again.

    Andra2017-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Ida and Joors are great hosts, very kind. Their house is in a unique location in the middle of the forest with a beautiful sky of stars in the night. They own a pack of lovely dogs and cats who will entertain you as long as you want, so it is great if you like pets. All to all we had a great stay, they will give you all the help you need and provide you a wonderful stay.

    Ernest2017-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a little bit on the outside of hluhluwe in the bushlands. The directions Ida gave us were really good so we could find it without any problems. Ida and her husband Jors welcomed us very nice and it was a great time sitting with them and their daughter at the table for lunch. We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend it for everyone who doesn't care about inscects (because it's in a forest)! We will go there definetely again if we come back to SA!

    Felix2017-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Ida, her husband and her daughter are great, warm and communicative hosts who love to help where they can. They've got lovely dogs and a few cute cats around their house. The room was really nice, equipped with a fridge and we could use the kitchen as well. We also had the possibility to have dinner together with the family what let us experience traditional african dishes like bunnychow :) afterwards we enjoyed the rest of the evening together. We highly recommend Ida and her family for everybody who wants to spend some great days in Hluhluwe/iMfolozi Park and/or Santa Lucia.

  • Ida was a great host, we talked to her very long about our journey. So she gave us many helpful tips about south africa. We enjoyed our stay and always would come back. By the way do not trust your GPS navigation, use the description ida will give you.

    Aaron2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful and quiet place near the Hluhluwe park, Ida (and her adorable dogs) was a very warm and kind host !

    Ivan And Sheilagh2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely home deep in the bush. Ida and her family (and the dogs and cats) are wonderful hosts. Only complaints were the lack of wifi and the bed not being the most comfortable. New linens would help a lot too. Regardless, we'd love to come back !!

    Holly2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely couple and lovely hospitality! Ida gave us lots of good tipps. The house is very big and has a beautiful surrounding area. The dogs and cats are lovely and really cute. Shopping Possibilitys are close by but you need a car! We enjoyed our short stay and would def recommend the accomodation!

    Johannes2018-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Ida et son mari ont été des hôtes parfaits. Nous avons passé 3 nuits très agréables dans leur grande et très belle maison. Leur grande cuisine toute équipée était ouverte pour nous, avec un petit frigo personnel. Le jardin et la vue sur les arbres et les noix de macadamia sont plus que sublime. Notre chambre nous a convenu et la grande salle de bain à côté un peu séparée du reste de la maison rend la partie pour les voyageurs bien isolée. Ida nous a donné beaucoup de conseils très utiles et sa compagnie a été très agréable. Nous recommandons ce lieu à tous les voyageurs !

  • All in all our stay was okay. Most of the time Ida was very friendly and helped us with planning our day trip but on the other hand she was very persistent in convincing us to promote her accommodation.

    Kevin2018-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic, quiet and superb designed lodge facilities inside the Kulemi Private Game Park. A unique experience to live, especially for people coming outside of SA. We saw several "safe" games during our stay, including a closed encounter with giraffe near the lodge pond, and we enjoyed the walks. Great place to enjoy quiet time and retreat with friends, but also with family with young kids (over 2). Suggestion to future guests: do you grocery at nearby Hluhlwe (still 20 min away) before check-in to avoid preventable back and forth trips to stack up for your stay. Minh-Tien (Canada) March 2017

    Minh-Tien2017-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. In front of the living area there is a waterhole, which it’s amazing to see different animals come to drink. The hosts were great. Wonderful service everyday for cleaning the lodge. The cabins were clean. It’s a perfect stay for a group who sleeps separately; there are 3 cabins. The communications was quick and easy

    Ilona2018-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Second time we have stayed here, a fantastic house/lodge. Baby giraffes walking right past the lodge. It is very well equipped, spotlessly maintained, and a fantastic place to spend the weekend. Thanks

    Anthony2017-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place to spend a weekend! Beautiful set up of the house and the 3 chalets, very clean, well equipped, good beds, beautiful surrounding of wild life, very kind cleaner. It was sad to leave the place when the weekend was over, definitely hope to comeback again!

    Janneke2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing house in a lovely setting. Great for a small group

    Robert2018-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic lodge that is in a perfect location for wildlife. We saw giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, cranes etc. all within 100m of where we were staying! Open fires at night and the pool overlooking the watering hole topped it off. The accommodation is stylish and well thought out. The separate chalets for bedrooms meant that, for bigger groups or multiple families, this would be a an excellent place to stay as you could gather in a communal area, but have some privacy to sleep. We would love to come back!

  • Karen's place is beautiful. It is remote, but this is exactly what we wanted. The house is spacious and comfortably decorated. The outside sitting areas are very comfortable. We especially enjoyed Karen's dogs and wished we could take Plonkey home. We also enjoyed the horses visiting us in the mornings. The entire experience was perfect. Thank you Karen!

    Eliza2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Chumbi Bush House is a beautiful home set in beautiful bush surroundings. It is remotely situated in Hluhluwe, Zululand & so one's own transport is essential. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, bush walks & some game sightings (no predators seen), and the well maintained house with plenty of space. The house is serviced daily, including dishes being washed which was great for being on holiday! Plonky's (friendly Staffordshire Terrier) daily visits were fun - she's quite a character. Keren was a great hostess. In the run up to our visit she communicated whenever I needed to be in touch with her & provided all the information we needed to prepare for a successful stay. I would recommend Chumbi Bush House for a quiet getaway in the Zululand bush.

  • This villa is a part of Hluhluwe River Lodge establishment which has other accommodations as well, but this villa is big, private, and fabulous. We only stayed one night and wish it could've been more. The views are breathtaking, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Everyone was kind and responsive. A bonus of this villa is that while it is self-catering and you wouldn't have to see anyone if you didn't want to, you also have the lodge not far away in case you would like to take meals there or sit at the bar, etc. This place has it all and is very close to several game reserves. Would definitely return!
