Activities

Morning and evening game drives

Umkumbe offers two game drives per day, one in the morning that departs at approximately 06:00 and the afternoon drive at 16:00. On the morning drive, there is a stop for coffee and on the afternoon drive, you will stop for sundowners. After sundowners guests will get to experience a night drive on the journey back to the lodge.

The night drives allow guests the opportunity to see the nocturnal animals not encountered during the day. Your tracker uses a powerful spotlight during the night drives to search for nocturnal animals, which include hyenas, aardvarks, bush babies, genet cats, and mongoose.

Walks

After a full breakfast, guests have the option of going on morning bush walk. Walks are led by qualified and trained field guides. You will have the opportunity to track wildlife, learn about the surrounding vegetation and how to read the African bush. If you're lucky you will enjoy a few close encounters with large predators.

Game walks are upon request and do not form part of the standard, set daily itinerary.
