Nyala Pans River Lodge is a scenic lodge situated on the banks of the popular Umkomaas River. A simple 25 kilometres from Richmond or a 45 minute drive from Pietermaritzburg as well as from Durban’s Marianhill Toll Plaza.
We offer various leisure activities, as well as catering for adventure-sport lovers. These activities include fly fishing for Yellow Fish, Canoeing, Swimming, Tubing, Bird Watching, Trail Hiking, Mountain-Biking Clay Pigeon Sporting Range, Air & .22 Rifle Target Range and Game viewing can be arranged too.
Yellow fishing in winter is fantastic. The water is crystal clear, and the Natal Golds give an excellent fight. In line with conservation ethics, we return all fish to the water.
The idyllic setting of the lodge lends itself well to the beautiful countryside and quiet nights, perfect for relaxing away from the everyday hustle and bustle. From the Lodges suspended deck, an abundance of game and birdlife along the river banks and across the grassy plains can be seen in the peace and tranquillity of the Umkomaas Valley, including Nyala, Kudu, Giraffe, Warthog, Wildebeest and Zebra.
