Hluhluwe River Lodge is situated on the western boundary of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and has sweeping views of False Bay and the Hluhluwe River floodplain.
Accommodation is in 12 thatched chalets which are separately located around the main lodge in the shade of an indigenous forest. Each of the standard chalets is built on stilts with thatch roofs and wooden decks. Each room is accessed via a wooden ramp leading onto a covered wooden deck with comfortable chairs and a coffee table. The chalets are fully air-conditioned with queen-sized beds and an en suite shower, separate toilet and vanity area. There are also two family chalets specially designed for families with up to two children. These open-plan chalets have a double bed arrangement for parents and a dormer set off to one side with two single children's beds. There is a curtain to separate the children's beds from the rest of the room.
Game drives take place in the Hluhluwe section of the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park. Accompanied by qualified field guides, the drive heads to the Memorial Gate entrance to the Park, which is approximately 25 minutes' drive, in an open game-viewing vehicle. Once in the Park there is ample opportunity to view a variety of game in this well populated park. The Hluhluwe section is in the region of 40,000 hectares and is home to the highest concentration of Rhino in Africa. Morning drives include a stop for tea, coffee and rusks, and the evening drives include a stop for the traditional evening sundowner. Additional activities include birding boat tours, horse trails and mountain biking.
