Tugela River Lodge is a pet friendly, self-catering Eco-Lodge, located on a private cattle and game farm on the banks of the Tugela River, near Winterton, KZN, South Africa. We run off solar and gas and invite guest to come and enjoy the quiet side of nature. Our lodge has access to many miles of trails for hiking, biking and running through our private game farm where one can get up close and personal with our resident giraffe. The sounds of the river are sure to put you to sleep at night!

I love nature and being outside and appreciate a good view! I can't imagine life without music and enjoy playing guitar and piano when I have the chance. My work has taken me to some remote places of the world and I love sharing those stories with anyone wanting to hear them. I practice Pilates to keep fit when I'm busy and enjoy free diving and rock climbing.

During your stay
I live on sight and there is another manager here, Bheki, who will be able to help with anything you need. Bheki's children sell firewood which they cut from the game farm for R30 a bundle...well worth it for a braai (bbq) or for a winter fire inside.
