Great lodge in Umhlanga (Durban).
The Flamingo Lodge was great! Just a few minutes walk to Umhlanga Rocks beach and the famous Whale Bone pier. Surprisingly, it is really close to the Umhlanga action and restaurants, but peaceful inside. The Staff was great, they were quick to do anything that needed doing and had access or instructions for the various activities in the area. They even helped out with the 2 year. I will certainly stay again!

Beautiful private area. Very warm and welcoming hosts. My friends and I booked to stay on NYE, best decision ever as it’s a walking distance to the village &beach. I’d definitely book there again.

Lovely Place
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. They were around for anything needed and have ready answers for questions about the area and transport etc. The rooms are clean and comfortable, I had a great stay there. Location is good, depending on where you need to be. Safe area and restaurants nearby.
