Third and forth bedrooms: The third and forth bedrooms are each provided with two single beds. These rooms open out on to a balcony deck that views to the north over the dune forests and beyond. From this elevated position you can see a variety of birds – including heron, eagles, hawks, weavers and hornbills.

The pressure that is applied to the bed by your body spreads out across the mattress not straight down like standard mattresses. This creates a unique feeling that takes the strain of your body with excellent support.

Kenton-on-Sea, Eastern Cape, Sør-Afrika

Umthi Lodge is on a 230-hectare nature reserve, which is safe to walk around as there are no large game. There are 5 other houses on the nature reserve. Close by are the large big-5 game reserves of Kariega, Sibuya and the Addo Africa Elephant park.

The location of Umthi Lodge is on natural grassland bordering indigenous forest. From the lodge you can view game as they wander over the savannah and you can view into the indigenous dune forest where you can see antelope such as Bushbuck and Oribi. Immediately below the lodge is a small watering hole where game can often be seen in the mornings.
