Wendy’s Country Lodge is a nature lover’s delight with bird life in abundance. The guesthouse is set in a beautiful large tropical garden in Riverview, a peaceful suburb to Mtubatuba only 20 minutes away from the craft markets and beaches of St. Lucia, the world famous Hluhluwe/Umfolozi Game Reserve, and of course South Africa’s first World Heritage Site, the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. A warm hospitable welcome awaits you in this charming colonial style home that offers 4 star luxury en-suite bed & breakfast accommodation for tourists, as well as corporate guests needing peaceful and comfortable accommodation on their travel. A delicious full English breakfast is included, and in the evening you can enjoy some of the finest cuisine in our restaurant and relax with good fellowship around Tony’s Private Bar. With our central location for exploring Zululand in KwaZulu-Natal a part of the accommodation service we offer is to assist our guests in the planning of tours and safaris to get the most of their time. The main tours and safaris starts from our doorstep and are undertaken by experienced guides from Zululand Aquatic & Animal Adventures which have a sound knowledge of the abundant wildlife of the Hluhluwe/Umfolozi Game Reserve and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

We had a lovely room, all facilities clean and staff all really friendly. Not an easy place to wander from, other than by car, so we had breakfast and dinner both days we stayed. Garden was fantastic, food homely and hot, great steak one evening.
