Umtamvuna River Lodge
Port Edward, South Coast - Accommodation
Umtamvuna River Lodge in Port Edward
The pool terrace and cocktail bar, on stilts alongside the river, compliment the rustic ambience of the lodge. The lodge offers accommodation in eight comfortable air-conditioned and heated en-suite double, twin or single rooms. Each room has a flat-screen LCD TV, selected DStv and a private balcony which provides the opportunity to relax at sundown while taking in the views of the river and surrounding mountains.
The gardens and private river beach make for a perfect playground and place for children to explore as well as for Bubba, our Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. He roams the property freely and loves a game of "footie" with the kids. There are many activities that both the lodge and surrounding attractions have to offer.
Umtamvuna River Lodge is also South Africa’s premier wakeboarding venue and home to some of the best pro wakeboarders South Africa and Europe has to offer.
Beginners and professionals can wakeboard in warm tropical conditions year-round on the flat water behind a Mastercraft X-star with personal instruction by Kevin Dry and other top international pro wakeboarders. This is where the South African section of Oakleys "Push Process" was filmed. If you are a boardrider who loves surfing uncrowded surf spots in boardshorts and wakeboarding behind a big wake on protected, flat, warm water, you have just found heaven.
Umtamvuna will leave you with beautiful memories that linger long after everyone has departed.

Reviews for Umtamvuna River Lodge
It was not pleasant at all...there was no welcome and introduction to the facilities. The bar and kitchen closed at 5:00pm on Saturday night!!! We were not even informed...waiters were very pleasant and made us feel very welcome.
Beautiful spot. Lots of fun to be had
An amazing, versatile Port Edward location. We hired a kayak from them, and found the service friendly, flexible and affordable. They had the most beautiful views of the river, and a very confident resident horse.
Very beautiful. Lots to do. Friendly staff
Beautifull, quiet setting. Breakfast excellent. Sindi was a star. Luved the place. Also a great wedding venue.
