Pumba is a spectacular Big Five game reserve, and so accessible from the Garden Route. The reserve offers a high quality bush experience and an abundance of game. My family and I feel very privileged to have witnessed white lions roaming free. The food is exceptional and the service and attention to detail has a delightful personal touch. Pumba have created a world-class safari experience – no surprise CNN listed it on its Top 10 Best Safari list recently.World-wide!

ABOUT Pumba Private Game Reserve and Spa

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 Kariega River 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. Bird watching, bass fishing, stargazing, archery, nearby horse riding and golf. An hour from Port Elizabeth and 15 minutes from Grahamstown.

"Hi We had a great time at Pumba. Beautiful surroundings. Good game drives, the white lions (expecially the cubs) were truly spectacular but also had other good game sightings. Good food and wine at the end of each day made this a holiday to remember."
