  • We absolutely loved our stay at Umkumbe. The lodge was great and spacious and the bedding very very confortable. The food was delicious, dinner was served around a camp fire which made for a relaxing and romantic evening. Breakfast and lunch buffet were very tasty and there was plenty to go around. The game viewing was by far the best we have done in SA. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and are going the extra mile to make sure you have a good experience. Their 4wd are also the best equipped and most confortable ones that we've been on. I highly recommend this place. Stayed May 2016, travelled as a couple

  • We stayed there 3 nights of our 15 days trip and also all places we stayed were very good, this one was in a different class. Rooms were beautiful and modern and at the same time kept their African team. Food was great, staff were very kind and our game ranger was very knowledgeable. We could see elephants, hippos and more from everywhere within the vacinity. Enjoyed it very much

  • Our stay at Umkumbe Lodge was absolutely amazing. Hospitable people, beautiful lodge and the best game drive I've ever done. The rangers were a little bit nuts but that only made the game drive even more incredible and adventurous. A bit pricey, but totally worth it!

We love that there’s plenty to keep you occupied and content when not watching wildlife too. You may choose to spend some time in the pool or lounge or enjoying the bar and dining facilities. When the weather’s right, your traditional South African meals are served outside in the boma – or small pavilion.

In addition to the Big Five game sighting opportunities and the chance to see cheetahs and wild dogs as well as hundreds of bird species and endless varieties of plants, you’ll enjoy the human “creature comforts” at this professionally managed lodge.
