Jenny and Gavin are wonderful! You feel as a member of their familiy as soon as you´ve arrived. There is a very warm and familiar atmosphere in their logde. The food is simply excellent. Gavin organizes safaris himself and can give helpful advices what to do during your stay. Also Louvrina, stuff member, had helpful ideas what to do.

From the time that we were met by the wonderful Lowrena in reception, we were simply cared for as only Wendy's can. As always , Gav and Jen were impeccable hosts and I think the thing that we enjoy the most is the non-ending laughter that you get at Wendy's. It is without a doubt the best Guest House in...

Made to feel very welcome. Nice friendly staff. Beautiful gardens and great room with small kitchen area. Conveniently situated between Wetlands St Lucia and Imfolozi Reserve. We felt it was a very safe area in a gated complex. Would use this guest house again.

Wendy's Country House is much more than just great accommodation in Mtubatuba it is like becoming part of the family. Gavin and Jenny Udal have made it something very special. We spent our 15th anniversary and Valentines Day there. From the moment you arrive at this destination you are welcomed by Jenny as though she has known you for years....

Gavin and Wendy are just the host and hostess with the mostest. We were treated like royalty. The lodge is run to a very high standard. We arrived as friends and left feeling like family. Gavin escorted us on a game drive which we will never forget.

We were staying in Wendy's Country Lodge for three nights and took the three course dinner every evening. We've liked the food very much! We've done both trips, the hosts offered, one hippo tour to St. Lucia and a game drive. All the recommendations about activities were perfect. The hosts, Jenny and Gavin, are indescribable familiar and ran the bar...
