Pumba Water Lodge

Eastern Cape Big Five Safari

Eastern Cape Luxury Safari

Pumba Water Lodge is a exclusive  retreat overlooking Lake Kariega, a popular watering hole, in The Pumba Private Game Reserve. The reserve covers 6,000ha and is home to a variety of wildlife including large game such as the Big 5.

Water Lodge, set amongst dense bush veld offers 12 stone walled, thatched chalets leading off into meandering timber footpaths. All Chalets open onto private game viewing decks boasting plunge pools and outdoor showers. The indulgent bathrooms offer free-standing tubs and double basins, and each room is fitted with an earthenware fireplace.

The main areas are utterly charming. Overlooking luscious bushveld, you’ll enjoy the most unbelievable views as you relax in the cosy lounge. After a day of exciting game drives, we’re sure you’ll relish tucking in to freshly cooked dishes either in the stylish dining area, or outside under the stars.

Pumba offers an unrivalled safari experience coupled with luxury accommodation in the heart of the bushveld. Game drives at Pumba are truly something special, and guests can look forward to seeing the sought-after white lion as well as over sixty species of wildlife, including the Big 5 from the comfort of a safari vehicle. Pumba Water Lodge is a excellent choice for a Eastern Cape luxury safari.
