Umkumbe Safari Lodge is located in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, 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.
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.
The lodge sleeps a maximum of 14 guests in seven chalets/rooms. Six of the chalets have en-suite bathrooms (with showers) and one has an en-suite bathroom with both a shower and bath. Four of the chalets are connected via an inter-leading door, offering families or two groups of friends or couples travelling the perfect accommodation set up. All rooms have twin or double beds and all have mosquito nets. Bedding is comfortable without being ostentatious.
Most of the chalets have a small verandah with camping chairs, and with views of the Sand River.
