Gwahumbe Game & Spa

Stressed out city slickers will find a perfect sanctuary at KwaZulu-Natal's Gwahumbe Game Reserve and Spa which is barely an hour outside Durban but offers the magic and tranquility of a true African getaway - with the added bonus of an exotic wellness spa.

Guests are welcomed to a paradise with majestic cliff faces and lush riverine vegetation that is home to hippos, giraffes, rhinos and a wide variety of antelope as well as a plethora of birds including the martial eagle and endangered ground hornbill.

The more adventurous can look forward to hiking or mountain biking along the dramatic Gwahumbe gorge or tackling challenging 4 x 4 trials. Those looking to simply relax and drink in the scenic beauty can indulge in anything from a cool dip at the waterfall to sundowners on a wooden deck high above the hippo pool.

With its perfectly peaceful ambience and personalized service, Gwahumbe caters for anything from romantic escapes and family getaways to special interest parties, weddings, product launches, corporate conference and team building functions.

There is a wide variety of catered and self catered accommodation ranging from ultimate luxury to comfortable lodges to the rustic Mzigi bush camp. Facilities include a conference centre, swimming pool, bar and boma with adjoining well stocked wine cellar.

The wide variety of activities on offer not only includes challenging extreme 4 x 4 trials (in either your own vehicle or one hired from the reserve) but also mountain biking, game viewing from open land cruisers, game walks and hikes, bird watching and fishing. Fine cuisine is the order of the day in this AA Superior accredited reserve.

The Gwahumbe Spa Wellness Centre has massage rooms, a steam room, hydro room, wet room and gymnasium enclosed in a tranquil setting. Guests can either spoil themselves with individual treatments or enjoy some of the day or night packages that are available. Qualified therapists provide facials, reflexology, hot aromastone massages, aromatherapy massages, full body massages, back massages, exfoliation, body treatments, detoxifying body wraps, manicures and pedicures.

In effect, Gwahumbe offers the best of all worlds - the finest therapies, the thrill of adventure and the peace of the wild which together restore, mind, body and soul. However, because the Gwahumbe Game and Spa is proving so popular, guests are encouraged to make reservations well in advance.

For added peace of mind, Gwahumbe is located in a malaria free zone.
