Duma Manzi - Richmond

Duma Manzi is a Wildlife Retreat, a sanctuary offering unique African Wilderness. A small, luxurious Boutique Eco-Lodge, providing the most affordable 5-Star experience with an elegant and personal touch.

A comfortable one hour drive from Durban and 45 minutes from Pietermaritzburg, lying on both sides of the Mkomazi River, lies a 5000 hectare malaria and predator free reserve, nestled in the forest valley.

This extraordinarily beautiful and tranquil African Wilderness setting is the ideal retreat for those seeking privacy, exclusivity and absolute serenity. The Main Lodge is the perfect place to have your sundowners, overlooking the river, relax with your book on one of the comfy couches, or mingle with fellow guests.
