Umkumbe Bush Lodge

Located in one of the best game viewing destinations in South Africa, the renowned Sabi Game Reserve, Umkumbe Bush Lodge offers an authentic Sabi Sand safari. The luxury camp is the first of its kind in the reserve; think glamping but with a more luxurious twist.

Umkumbe Bush Lodge is a beautifully designed bush lodge situated on the banks of the seasonal Sand River, offering accommodation in 9 tented style suites each with a wooden deck and private balcony.

Guests have the opportunity to explore the Sabi Game Reserve on daily game drives and bush walks. The lodge is located in an incredibly scenic part of the reserve, with its winding riverbeds and woodland to open savanna and riverine thickets.
