Umkumbe Safari Lodge is ideally located in the heart of the Sabi Sand Reserve in the Greater Kruger. The Sabi Sand is considered by many to be the premier reserve within South Africa due to large concentrations of wildlife and in particular, leopard. Animals roam freely throughout as there are no fences between the Kruger National Park and the private game reserves.

Umkumbe overlooks the Sand River which attracts a plethora of wildlife to its banks on a regular basis and offers standard and superior accommodation for couples as well as families with children over 5 years old. Game drives take place twice a day, and are always an exciting adventure, and dinner times are a celebration in the traditional boma under the starry skies.
