Certificate of Excellence
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.

Jenny and Gavin are the perfect hosts and they know everything there is in the area. The also have a deep knowledge of the parks, the animals and the other countries around, as they lived in quite a few of them. If I go back to Imfolozi, it will definitelybe at their place

Hi Wendy, we are interested in your property for a family holiday in October. Do you have availability for 2-3 nights around Oct 8th for 2 adults and 2 children aged 8 and 10yrs. we would also be keen on a game drive and the estuary boat trip if you arrange them. Do you also do pick up from Durban airport or Richards Bay?
"You will not be sorry if you choose Wendy's Country Lodge."
"We had a suite with its own patio. Lovely to sit out on with an early morning coffee or tea and listen to the birdlife."
"All rooms are amazing"
"Have stayed in at least 4 different rooms at various times and loved them all. Each had its own charm."
"All rooms are close to the bar where Gavin will welcome you with a laugh and a tale"
US$96 - US$116 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
