Dumehlezi has become our home away form home in Sodwana. We’ve been staying there for the past 5 years. Every year Dennis and crew have added something, upgrading facilities and making our stay better every year. A large number of these upgrades is based on feedback that Dennis demands form us. Dennis “baie dankie” to you and your crew. We love Dumehlezi.


I have been diving in Sodwana Bay area since the late 90’s and have seen this little town evolve from a camping only environment to something that has a whole range of options. There are spots where you save money but have to rough it in tents, there are places where you pay a fortune and have some privacy and first world comforts and these a lot in-between. Dumehlezi blends all these options into one. You get the option of privacy when you want being in your own house with all the luxuries (including air-con) and still get to socialise in the boma area when you want to. There is now also space for tents if you are on a budget as well. Travelling in groups – this is a winner; Travelling alone – also a winner!!!


“The best accommodation at Sodwana Bay. Service and support excellent.”


“I am a non-diver who enjoys a good night’s sleep after a day in the sun. Dumehlezi offered me a wonderfully comfortable bed, neat and tidy accommodation and friendly staff. It is a comfortable distance to the shops, both ways, and just away from the seasonal hustle and bustle.”


“Natives of France, we had the pleasure to stay at Dumelezi during our trip to Sodwana Bay. A little piece of heaven unveiled behind the wide safety gates. We were welcomed by a very devoted and pleasant staff and by barnyard animals which makes the originality of the spot.”
