Words would fall short to describe the most memorable two days spend at Pumba Private Game Reserve.The Time you check in untill the time you check out everything is with personal touch n attention, you just have to surrender yourself to the Most energetic, enthusiastic, always smiling and ready to help Team Pumba and just get lost in time to be spend in this heavenly abode of natural forest, lush green with ample of freely roaming wildlife. The Reserve property is truly amazing n what makes your stay special is the people running the show can't indivudalize so I say Team Pumba.. Everyone very very good and helpful.
The chalets are a level next..set a perfect backdrop of jungle with freely moving Giraffes, wilderbeast, Zebras... All you can see while sipping your coffee in balcony.
The Restaurant keeps your palate and taste buds always busy and pampers your stomach round the clock , may it be morning coffee with cookies &sandwiches before game drive , perfect spread of breakfast after the drives, n Set lunch &dinner with free flowing Spirits, Soft drinks ya Hot Choclates.
The Main itenary of your stay The Game drives.. Wouldnt have asked for anything more, we did four game drives with Ranger Ms Kelly, She was so very perfect with great farsightedness and Sixth sense, Thanks to her we could see Lions at very close distance just passing by the vehicle in all the four game drives plus all other animals Big 4 Just missed on Buffalos, but lots animal to see and She parted with lot of animal behavior and information pertaining to them. Another best thing was to be served with hot coffee and cookies right in jungle by the jeep.
I would go on and on for Pumba game reserve and Team Pumba, really thanks a million for making our stay so very special and memorable.
Would definitely love to come back.
