ABOUT US

UNEMBEZA BOUTIQUE LODGE & SPA IS SITUATED ON THE GREENBELT OF THE HOEDSPRUIT WILDLIFE ESTATE AND CATERS FOR THE CONSCIOUS TRAVELER LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH NATURE.

Unembeza opened its doors in July 2016 with 12 beds and 5 staff members. Extreme dedication, unbelievable staff and our amazing food made Unembeza the most talked about new lodge in Hoedspruit. Due to increased demand for availability we expanded with a Private Family Villa in April 2017, our Deluxe Garden Suites in September 2017, Villa Mbali in August 2018 and opening soon the exclusive use Villa Mhlabeni. Today we employ 35 people and our lodge can sleep a maximum of 35 guests.

OUR ETHOS

Conscious. Connected. Committed.

In the Zulu culture to have unembeza (conscience) is the highest act of a virtuous person. In fact, in the Zulu language unembeza is such a strong concept that it goes even beyond just wrong and right, its the very essence of humanity. It is not just a subjective agent which is sometimes the key criticism of the Western understanding of conscience. The absence of unembeza is in fact an absence of the fundamental principle that makes a person a person. We try to live this in our day to day operations through respect for people and environment.

OUR ENVIRONMENT

Wild. Scenic. Welcoming.

The Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate is home to healthy populations of plains game, with regular sightings of our resident leopards. The absence of elephants, buffalos, lions and rhinos mean you can explore the estate’s greenbelt area on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback.

OUR FACILITIES

Whether staying in our lodge or one of our villas, you can be assured of a carefully curated stay, with a focus on personal attention, helping you connect to this wonderful part of the world. Our eco-friendly ethos is one of respect for nature and her bounty, which you can enjoy from the privacy of your room, our pools, viewing decks, bomas, lounge areas or spa.
