Celebrate your Wedding in a Sub-Tropical Paradise at Umtamvuna River Lodge

Umtamvuna River Lodge is a perfect setting for a romantic beach or garden wedding in a sub-tropical garden. Located in the town of Port Edward on the KZN South Coast you can enjoy a year-round warm climate.

The Lodge has its own private river beach, rolling lawns and tranquil gardens, offering a beautiful romantic setting for the ceremony.

The reception area leads on to a spacious covered wooden deck facing the river, and can seat up to 120 guests.  For a larger number, a stretch tent can be set up on the lawns, at an additional cost.

For a small intimate wedding, the lapa at the pool is an ideal place, enhanced by the tranquil sound of cascading water from the rock pool.
