Luxury Comfort – a heartbeat from Hilton College

An easy drive from Pietermaritzburg, Durban – and even Joburg, 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 is for those who appreciate and expect the finer things in life – those things that are priceless…

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.
