Our Testimonials

Martin United Kingdom

Small luxury bush location with tented accommodation. Comfortable big beds with lovely bedding and air con to combat the humidity. Super hot water showers, plenty of fluffy towels...perfect for returning from a soggy, rainy early morning game drive! All the staff were extremely enthusiastic about their roles at Umkumbe, and keen to share and listen to stories of game sightings. Main dining BOMA area was a lovely place to eat and each evening the chef would come and announce what had been prepared which was such a nice way for guests to be involved more than just the game guides. All the meals were delicious and plentiful including nice snacks and drinks on sundowner game drives.

David Reunion

Tent with all the comforts of a luxurious hard-wall room but with the possibility to hear the sounds of nature. Full immersion in the savannah, fabulous personnel, exemplary sympathy, in a human dimension. Here we feel a little like a big family. The very competent guides are very enthusiastic and take pleasure in the game drives and bush walk communicating their love of this nature, encounters with animals are magic.
