Umkumbe Safari Lodge is an owner managed and run lodge that nestles in the 65 000 hectare private Sabi Sands Game Reserve and shares an unfenced border with the world-renowned Kruger National Park. The Sabi Sands Game Reserve offers unrivaled game viewing with an abundance of wildlife moving freely between the reserve and the Kruger Park.
Umkumbe Safari Lodge boasts three Standard Chalets and seven Superior Suites, all with spectacular views of the surrounding bushveld.
Each Standard Chalet has a king-size bed or twin beds, an en-suite bathroom with shower, mosquito netting, air conditioning, comfortable chairs, an in-room safe and a patio.
The Superior Suites have the addition of a sleeper couch and the en-suite bathroom features double vanities, a bathtub, and an outdoor shower. Four of the suites overlook the Sand River whilst the other three look onto a small plains area and active waterhole.
The lodge facilities include a lounge area, dining area, bar, pool deck with a swimming pool, and an outdoor boma. The main areas of the lodge overlook the riverbed.
Sabi Sands is home to a huge diversity of plants and wildlife, which includes the Big Five, cheetah and wild dog. Night drives may reveal some of the many nocturnal species such as honey badger, bush baby, porcupine, genet, bat-eared fox, and aardvark. Leopard sightings are also more frequent after dark.
Umkumbe Safari Lodge is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for a rewarding safari experience.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
