The detail

Welcome to the Home of Endless Views (Makumu means ‘endless view’ in the Xitsonga language). Makumu Private Game Lodge, located in the ‘Big Five’ Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is an intimate oasis surrounded by the harshness, unpredictability and unspoiled appeal of the African bushveld

Six luxurious and beautifully appointed suites in three villas, accommodating a maximum of twelve guests, ensure an exclusive blend of absolute comfort, style and privacy. Inspired by the Bushman, Ndebele and Zulu tribes of Africa, the suites are decorated with their own unique character. Each is large and spacious, offering a King Suite and smaller Impi Suite.

Game viewing at Makumu is opportunistic, with no time constraints nor schedules. The highly skilled ranger and tracker team offer morning and afternoon game drives, walking, tracking and quiet observation from a hide - all part of the Makumu experience. Makumu Private Game Lodge has also recently introduced 'iThumbela', which loosely translated from the Xitsonga language means ‘place to hide'. This is a photographic bunker, sunken below ground and overlooking a watering hole, offering guests the opportunity to photograph wildlife coming to the water to cool down or drink, at ground level.

Price includes

  • All game viewing activities (morning and afternoon drives, walking safaris, tracking big game on foot, bird watching) All meals, teas, coffees and a selection of local beverages including beers, wines and soft drinks
