The Hilton Bush Lodge
In South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, is an idyllic escape from the madding crowd. Overlooking the confluence of the uMngeni and Rietspruit rivers, as well as neighbouring uMngeni Valley Nature Reserve, you’ll be mesmerised by long grasses swaying in the gentle breeze, sightings of an antelope or two, picturesque vistas across the valley and continual bird song. This is a restful yet invigorating place to be – it’s Africa at its best.
Although sophisticated, the venue has been specifically designed to remain in harmony with the untouched, 40-something hectares of bushveld and it successfully unites a picturesque country setting with state-of-the-art facilities. Well-appointed comfortable accommodation, high-tech conference facilities and a chapel for dream weddings all exceed expectations.
The Hilton Bush Lodge does not have its own restaurant or open bar facility however there are a few restaurants about 10 kilometres away that we are happy to recommend and make reservations for you. We supply free Wifi in our business centre.

From the panoramic views of the uMngeni and Rietspruit rivers to the chorus of birdsong, every element here is curated to offer an unparalleled experience. Our mission? To provide an escape that speaks to your soul, amidst settings that take your breath away.
A Room With a View
“The room is large and comfortable, with a beautiful view. Also very private. The most thoughtful thing was the milk in the fridge for our coffee! That’s a first! For a long trip from Jhb to Dbn it was the perfect stop. We were able to experience a bush holiday while on our way to the sea.” Tripadvisor Review
