Accommodation

Umkumbe Safari Lodge is owner managed and run; ensuring guests enjoy a personal, rustic and real South African safari experience. The lodge consists of ten chalets / rooms with most overlooking the Sand River. Guests regularly see elephants, hippos, buffalo, and antelope grazing in the river bed.

Program

Day 1: Johannesburg

Transportation to the Sabi Sands is operated by a qualified driver who will pick you up in Johannesburg at 06:00 on the morning of your departure. All transfers are done in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle, where you will be transported via the Panorama Route to Sabi Sands. Panorama route includes God’s Window, Lisbon Falls, and Graskop and all entrance fees are included in the package. There are numerous stops along the way for comfort breaks and photo moments.

Arriving at Umkumbe Safari Lodge or similar, you will be greeted by the friendly lodge staff and have time to settle in and rest before embarking on the afternoon game drive. Sabi Sands has a high concentration of wildlife and is known for the predators, especially the cats.

Although the Sabi Sands is a private reserve and is a more exclusive safari experience, it forms part of the Greater Kruger Park with its borders being unfenced with the national park. Late afternoon and into the evenings is a great time to spot wildlife, after which you will make your way to the lodge for supper and an opportunity to have a relaxed evening.

Day 2: Kruger Park

On the next day, you will be greeted with a cup of coffee before heading off for the morning game drive in a 4x4 safari vehicle, hopefully with an opportunity to spot the big five waking and roaming in your path. There is an alternative to go on a morning bush walk rather than the drive if you so prefer.

Upon return from your safari, you will be served a leisurely breakfast and have the remainder of the morning at the lodge to catch up on sleep or rest at the pool. Lunch will be served and there will be some more time to unwind before returning for an afternoon / sunset safari drive with your guide. Sunset will be spent in the bush, after which you will be returned to the lodge for supper and the evening at your leisure.

Day 3: Johannesburg

Early morning rise on the final day and head out for your morning game drive to spot the animals that have been eluding you on your safari experience. Return to the lodge for breakfast and check out, where the driver will be waiting to transfer you back to Johannesburg via Nelspruit.

Location

Umkumbe is located on the banks of the Sand River in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. The lodge is perfectly positioned to enjoy magnificent views of the river and its wildlife activity. The main deck area is a favorite with clients as they relax and watch the surrounding bird and animal activity.

The lodge is unfenced, however it is safe for children as there is trip wire which aims to keep elephants and larger animals at bay.
