We had a truly amazing stay at Umlani. Everything was wonderful and very spectacular - the games drives and experience of ranger, the camp itself with its rooms and dining / social areas. We will definitely be back!

Totally relaxing, enlightening trip of a lifetime. The staff was so professional and knowledable. Saw The "big five" in only 4 rides. Also enjoyed our bush walk, learning about signage and topography.
