Tugela River Lodge is a 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 use solar power and gas to run our lodge and are completely off the grid.

In the shadow of the famous Anglo-Boer Battlefield of Spionkop, the rustic and pet friendly accommodation is the ideal place for a family weekend, or a large group get together. We have a total of 34 beds in stand alone thatch cottages, that can be booked either as the Lodge – an 18 bed set up, or the Hideaway – a 6 sleeper, or Rapids – 4 sleeper and finally the River House – 4 sleeper.

The nearby Battle of Spionkop, the Spionkop Game Reserve and the Central Berg will ensure that you have lots to do. On site you have free fishing and canoes on the river, and there are numerous hiking paths and Trail running/MTB trails on the game farm on request.

The Green family are your hosts. The lodge has been in the family for 20 years. They have a passion for mountain biking and trail running. An annual well-known mountain bike race and trail run take place in the area.

Trail run – The Oxpecker Trail Run
MTB ride – Berg and Bush Cycle Race

So pack up everyone, including the kids and granny and grandpa, and the mutts, and head out to Tugela River Lodge!

We do not have TV here. We urge people to come here to experience nature and to get out and walk, ride, hike, run, fish, swim, paddle and enjoy time away from their cellphones. In this modern day, it is sometimes difficult to catch a break from the fast paced life of technology, and we offer you a great opportunity to get away from it all!
