About Mzimayi River Lodge

Mzimayi River Lodge is located along the banks of the Mzimayi River. It offers five Double Rooms and four Family Rooms. The sub-tropical climate is wonderful all year round.

All of the rooms are equipped with either double or single beds as well as tea and coffee-making facilities. Fans and air-conditioners ensure the comfort of guests and each room has a safe for valuables.

The lodge has a large deck area with a swimming pool and fully licensed pub where we serve small meals. There is a wonderful á la carte restaurant with great sea views which is open to the public. Restaurant hours are Tues-Sat 08h00-20h00 and Sundays where we serve a delicious plated lunch instead of a la carte 08h00-15h00.

For corporate functions we have a conference room with option of white board and data projector. Group bookings for the entire lodge can be arranged with custom menus for these occasions. Rates applicable for these functions on request.

The lodge is only 800 m from Hibberdene’s main beach, which is great location for scuba diving. The untouched reefs are home to many rare species such as the long nose hawkfish, soft coral sponges and fern corals. The Hibberdene Lagoon is great for a picnic in the sun or paddling in the waters.

Wedding Venues: We offer a wedding venue for up to 50 guests.

Conference Venues: Up to 60 delegates cinema style or 26 classroom style. White board, projector and air conditioned. Tea/coffee and muffins can be served if required. Full a la carte restaurant available for delegates if required.

This was absolutely worth the stay. Premises is secure with onsite security officer during the night while enjoying restful sleep. Always closed and monitored gate access. The staff was amazing and proficient attending to any needs. All the good qualities that result in a relaxed and joyful vacation are met. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a zero-stress holiday!Thank you to all the staff and great accommodation.Special thanks to owners Rene and Eugene.......not forgeting most humble Ronel!Kind regards,Vito

Checking-In - The lady at reception was cold and not welcoming.  I said good afternoon and she replied:Yes how can I help you" whilst focusing on the other guy who was doing payment.  Then she called for assistance.I was told that my name wasn't there meaning I didn't book.  Only to find out that my first name was used and not surname.  I thought it was normal to use both first name and surname. I was asked if were sharing a bed with my husband.  That was a personal question and the question should have beenon third missing person but not assume " husband". I found that people waking up early...

Thank you somuch for the wonderful time we had at Mzimayi River Lodge, the place is good the staff is so sweet and carrying, but but there is one thing that is not healthy about the place the rooms are very close to the dinning hall and that makes the guests to have no privacy and on Friday we did not sleep at all because of the noise there was a function and people were making noise like nobodies business, if they can sort the thing of the bar and the dinning hall, everything will perfect.

We checked in for a quick 3 night getaway and had a really great stay at Mzimayi River Lodge. The lodge is on the river as the name would suggest, but it's right at the river mouth and so you get a really great view of the river and the ocean as well. It was particularly great watching whales breaching from our room.The food was lovely and the staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. I'd highly recommend this lodge as a really nice tranquil spot to stay at for a nice quiet getaway.

We had a lovely experience at the lodge and would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in the Hibberdene area.The food from the on-site restaurant was excellent, the rooms neat and well-equipped, and the staff and owners friendly.Just be wary of the pothole ridden road leading to the lodge.
