    What a wonderful destination. Last visited 16 years ago. It just gets better and better. The staff at Umngazi are amazing. We found it is all about the people. The happy people of Umgazi and all its visitors.

    Contact the resort for availability. I believe you can fly in from Jhb and the resort picks you up from the airport. Please arrange the details with the resort. It is a stunning place.
