The camp is simple yet has everything you need for a unique bush experience. Great food, experienced guides and wonderful staff. We saw every animal you could imagine and felt safe and comfortable. Would certainly visit again.
What a beautiful place this is! When we first arrived at Umlani we didn’t know what to expect. We knew that it would be good, we just couldn’t imagine how great it would turn out to be. The bushcamp is stunning. Our room was very clean and spacious with a beautiful outdoor shower - super cool! The staff are extremely caring and knowledgeable, they really do go the extra mile to make your stay feel very special. Special thanks to the owners, Marco and Marie, who made us feel at home right from the beginning. Their warmth and love for their guests and their bushcamp made this an unforgettable experience. We will be back! 10/10
Great-hearted hospitality and passion for wildlife is the overall ethos of Umlani. I was welcomed with warmth into this family-run bush camp, with an abundance of healthy, delicious food and comfortably spacious 'traditional' accommodation. Watching the sun rise after an overnight sleepover in the tree house was one of my highlights, with lions roaring in the distance. The game drives were phenomenal. We were extremely blessed with the amount of game sightings, guided with expertise and playfulness. Unforgettable. Thank you!
Bring your family, friends and discover for yourself why less is often more on a safari. At Umlani you will find less fuss, less rules, less people - a recipe for true connections with nature, with people and often with yourself. Be sure to spend a nght on the sleepout deck serenaded by the sounds of the wild. Quickly you will find youself part of the family at the camp and the magic grows from there.
We thoroughaly enjoyed our stay at Umlani. The staff were incredible and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Umlani is truly a special place that gives you the experience of really being in the bush and enjoying it, it was such a thrill. Our game driver Elvis and Tracker Efraam were beyond amazing! They were so good at tracking the animals and giving us an unforgettable experience, on the first day we saw a leopard and manged to see the big 5 and more. The special ladies in the kitchen, Susan and Lineth were so amazing and the food was great! Thank you to all the staff who made everything so special for our engagement and keeping it a secret so well. A must is the tree house and bushwalk experience. Thanks again to Marco, Michaela, Andrea, Susan, Lineth, Elvis and Efraam and to all the staff behind the scenes that we didn't meet. We will definitely be back :)…
