Here guests get to explore the private Big Five game reserve, boasting high biological diversity, including the renowned white lion, hippos, hyenas, cheetahs, endangered wild dogs and giraffes, along with over 20 species of antelopes as well as some 270 bird species.

Pumba features two uniquely-crafted and well-located lodges. The Msenge Bush Lodge, looks out over the floodplains of the Kariega River, with its own watering hole. At Msenge the 11 glass-sided and thatch covered chalets provide sweeping vistas of the scenic Zuurberg mountains. The other lodge setting, Water Lodge, is set high on the shores of Lake Kariega, offering 12 thatched and stone-walled chalets overlooking the water, and connected by wooden walkways. Both safari lodges feature fully appointed luxury bathrooms, rich wooden decks, plunge pools and outdoor showers. Dine inside or outdoors on our sublime fusion cuisine with an Eastern Cape flair, complemented by a collection of the best local wines.
