Dense evergreen forests of towering fig trees stand in a lush undergrowth of ferns and wild orchids hanging from the trees. Palm savannah’s with thousands of wild date and lala palms dot the white sand of the undulating landscape. Swamp forests with large raffia’s and tangled masses of greenery that are home to myriads of exquisite birds and behind them mountainous sand dunes that appear to shift with the sighing of gentle winds.
Ndumu River Lodge is located in a diverse eco system that traces from the Lebombo Mountains neighbouring Swaziland to the Laquit Sand Forests of the Mozambique boundary.
Forming part of the north western route of the elephant coast, Ndumu River Lodge is only 500km from Johannesburg and 450km from Durban.
