Pumba Private Game Reserve and Spa

12 Waterfront Chalets and 11 Bush Chalets


Awake to sounds of the African bush as the sun rises from the morning mist, casting a sparkling reflection across the water to the edge of your private deck. In the malaria-free Eastern Cape, Pumba Private Game Reserve provides an intimate African experience never to be forgotten.

The reserve is home to Africa’s Big 5, as well as white lion, hippo, hyena, cheetah, giraffe, antelope species and an abundant 270 bird species. Share the excitement and beauty of Africa on game drives in open Landrovers with experienced rangers or on a guided walking safari.

Pumba Water Lodge offers waterfront chalets overlooking Lake Cariega while Msenge Bush Lodge is set on a flood plain with scenic mountain views offering luxury thatch and glass chalets. Chalets at both lodges open onto private plunge pools. The indulgent bathrooms offer free-standing tubs and double basins, and each room has an earthenware fireplace.

Whether dining indoors or under the starry sky, experience African fusion cuisine with an Eastern Cape flair. Be pampered in the soul spa or work out in the glass enclosed gym at Msenge. Birdwatching, bass fishing, stargazing, archery, nearby horse riding and golf. An hour from Port Elizabeth and 15 minutes from Grahamstown.
