About
Description
Awake to the sounds of the African bush veld as the sun makes its appearance on the horizon bringing with it the prospect of another perfect day. Eco friendly Pumba, a proud member of the Green Leaf Conservation More Initiative, is set in the malaria-free Eastern Cape and provides an intimate African safari experience never to be forgotten. Water Lodge offers waterfront chalets overlooking Lake Cariega while Bush Lodge is set on a floodplain with scenic mountain views offering luxury thatch and glass chalets. All Chalets open onto private game viewing decks boasting plunge pools and outdoor showers. The indulgent bathrooms offer free-standing tubs and double basins, and each room is fitted with an earthenware fireplace. Whether dining indoors or under the starlit sky, meals at Pumba are simply sublime. Pumba has recently been recognised by Somak Holidays as one of the Top 5 Safari Destinations in Africa. So, what are you waiting for? Come and see for yourself. Less

That is correct - the packages at Pumba Private Game Reserve is all inclusive (at both Water Lodge and Bush Lodge). The only charge is for our premium wines and liquors.
