a memorable bush adventure

Stay 3 x nights in one of the four double huts that come with double beds, en-suite facilities including an open-air bush shower. Comfortably fitted with white mosquito nets, crisp white linen, and towels as well as with standard bathroom amenities, the huts also have bottled water (although the tap water is perfectly safe to drink) and insect repellent. 

You will be taken out on two game drives per day, in open-top 4 wheel drive vehicles. The morning game drive will leave at dawn and the night drive will leave in the late afternoon. There is always a ranger on stand-by for an optional morning bush walk.

During the day you can go on short walks with the ranger after breakfast, or lounge in the hammocks around the swimming pool sipping your favorite drink. Alternatively, laze away the day in the spacious bush bar and deck overlooking the riverbed and watering hole. For exclusive tranquility, there is a treehouse about 2.5 km from the camp overlooking a dam, where you can go for an hour or two with blankets and big comfortable pillows as well as a cooler box with drinks.

In the evening you will be treated to pre-dinner drinks in the traditional boma around the fire, followed by one of Umlani’s award-winning meals in the candlelit dining room, or out in the open riverbed surrounded by flares and cauldron fires.

 

The END OF THE ROAD….for now
