With an on-site owner/manager, Umkumbe Safari Lodge is totally committed to making sure you have a great South African getaway that you’ll remember for a lifetime. Make friendships that can last a lifetime with the friendly people at Umkumbe, a great place to spend your safari time. With just 10 chalets overlooking the Sand River, your exclusive experience includes more than adequate game viewing opportunities.

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. Why not make Umkumbe Safari Lodge the locale for your first or next safari experience?
