The lodge sleeps a maximum of 20 guests in nine chalets/rooms and there are four chalets connected via an interleading doors. The interleading chalets are ideal for families. A communal boma area is where guests relax after their evening safari and exchange wildlife stories about recent sightings. During the hot Summer months guests can relax at the pool which overlooks the Sand River.

In Room Facilities:

All rooms have twin or double/king size beds and all have mosquito nets. Bedding is comfortable without being ostentatious.

Area Information:

The Sabi Sand is next to the Kruger National Park. Umkumbe is in the middle of this Big 5 country between Mala Mala and Londolozi.

Property Facilities:

The focus at the lodge is of the view of the seasonal Sand River, and for obvious reasons. Almost daily guests are treated to sightings of various animals grazing in the riverbed. The main lodge area consists of a lounge area, swimming pool with decking, as well an open air dining area and bar. All facilities have wonderful views of the riverbed.

In addition, a safari to the Kruger would not be complete without the traditional boma experience. Dinner is served around a roaring fire against the natural night sounds of the bushveld.

Attractions:

Umkumbe Safari Lodge is located in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin, considered by many to be the premier wildlife reserve in South Africa. Located on the banks of the seasonal Sand River, Umkumbe Safari Lodge is perfectly situated in one of the best Big Five game viewing destinations in Africa.

The reserve is home to the Big Five (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo), as well as cheetah, wild dog and hundreds of other species of animals, birds and plants indigenous to the area. The phrase Big Five was coined by hunters of yesteryear â?? before the advent of the photographic safari â?? and refers to the animals considered the most dangerous to hunt. Umkumbe Safari Lodge offers guests exciting photographic safaris, and there is no better destination to photograph lions and leopards than the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve.

What a fab place. Everyone was really friendly and driver leaders/trackers were just so fab and really skilled. It was great to hear all their knowledge. I’d highly recommend a stay!

Superb. 5 out of 5

The stay was excellent value for money, with knowledgeable and accommodating staff. The game viewing in the lodge was superb - elephants coming to the boundary - and we saw sightings of rhino & leopard on several drives. So frustrating when a leopard crosses to the next lodge boundary! Food was adequate and up to expectations.

Superb. 5 out of 5
