    The best thing about Umbhaba Lodge in Hazyview is that its summer all year round – even in winter time when game viewing is at its best, the temperature is still pleasant. I quite enjoyed the drive to Umbhaba Lodge – you can go through Dullstroom and White River depending on the route you take, so it becomes a real road trip. The lodge is really beautiful with loads of water features, in a subtropical garden. The nearest Kruger National Park gate is ten minutes away (just through Hazyview) and we were lucky enough to spot a leopard on a small rocky hill, within the first 30 minutes of our game drive. A wedding was going on while we were there – very romantic…. they have an open air chapel on the side of a dam! They have a restaurant on the property which serves fantastic food – good sized portions and good value for money…
