A quick chat with Peter and he suggested a Safari. An hour later and we were on our way to Huhluwe game reserve with Peter as our guide. Already planning my...

My wife and I enjoyed our 6-night stay at the Lodge. The staff were very friendly and were always willing to help. The surrounding area is quiet and perfect for a holiday away from the city. Highly recommended. Thank you to the Gumtree Lodge staff members. Keep up the great work!

The wifi was shocking, and as we were expecting emails and to be able to communicate this...

When I was looking for a place to stay to celebrate my mom's 70th, I had no idea where to start. For a lady who spent her life cleaning other people's houses & now retired in rural Eastern Cape, it wasn't going to be easy.

There is also a very reasonably priced and generously...

Great stay . This Lodge made my long stay very pleasant. The staff were very friendly and made me feel at home. If I ever needed anything all I had to do was ask and it was tended to right away. This place made me feel at home even though home was far away. Thank you to Lindah and Babu...

I just visited Durban and stayed at the Gumtree Lodge. It is a home away from home, very serene and natural. The staff were nice, helpful and polite. Peter, the owner was very friendly and welcoming. It is a place I will surely recommend to visitors who prefer the homely environment.
