4 Days Pumba Safaris in South Africa

Exciting Safari South Africa

Experience the beauty of Africa on this thrilling safari! You will see rare white lions in their natural habitat at Pumba Private Game Reserve in the malaria-free Eastern Cape region of South Africa. The lions' white color is caused by a recessive trait derived from a less-severe mutation in the same gene that causes albinism, distinct from the gene responsible for white tigers. If you are ready for an unforgettable safari in Africa, then this holiday is for you.

East Cape Tours South African Safari Itinerary

Day 1 - Pumba Private Game Reserve

East Cape Tours' driver will pick you at the airport and take you to Pumba Private Game Reserve in a private vehicle. The driver will answer all your questions about local culture and anything you might want to know about South Africa. Upon arrival at Pumba Game Reserve, a 45 minutes drive, you will be welcomed by the friendly staff with an ice cold welcome drink.

From there, you will be led to your room and you will be asked about your game drive preferences. Dinner and drinks will be served at the dining area. The coming days will be spent enjoying game drives and relaxing.

Day 2 - Game drives and relaxation

You have a choice to go on game drives or relax at the pool or spa. Not only will you enjoy the luxury accommodation at Pumba but also the exciting activities and game drives. There are a number of different activities to choose from including big five game drives, night safari drives, bird-watching, bass fishing, archery, botanicals, bushwalks, stargazing, spa treatments, sand dune excursions, horseback trails, golf, skydiving, and historical tours.

The Big 5 safari game drives are managed by a qualified guide in an open Land Rover. You will be able to view the breathtaking and free roaming white lion, leopards, buffaloes, elephants, tawny lions, and rhinoceroses with countless other smaller species and wildlife twice a day - early in the morning and at dusk.

Guided walks are recommended for those wishing to experience a more close relationship with the bush and its fauna and flora. On bush walks, you have the opportunity to explore the beautiful landscape on foot and get closer to nature and its inhabitants.

Day 3 - Relaxation

You will again take a pick between game drives and spa or both. Inspirations for the scents and remedies used are taken from the fynbos, desert, and ocean. The expert therapists are qualified to pamper you with a host of therapies including various massages, full body wraps, hot stone therapy, manicures, pedicures, facials, and hydrotherapy.

None of these are done in isolation, however, with the therapists cognizant of a holistic approach in all spheres. For this reason, too, each package is tailored to suit your specific needs and symptoms. And if you prefer complete intimacy and privacy, the therapist will provide the treatments in your room. A steam room, gym, and plunge pool are also available to provide the perfect end to a busy day spent exploring the Eastern Cape bushveld.

Day 4 - Departure

Depending on your departure time, you can have a final game drive in the morning. You will be transferred to the Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ).
