We stayed here as part of our honeymoon ; Pumba was the highlight of our trip that involved 7 nights in an all-inclusive resort in Mauritius, followed by 2 weeks in South Africa. We cannot recommend Pumba highly enough

I visited in August and was amazed by the facilities, the staff and fantastic game drives. The weather was not great but this didn't spoil our adventure as we were thoroughly spoilt with beautiful food at all meals, hot towels, hot water bottles and wood burning fires. We saw loads of animals on all our game drives and even from our balcony. This is a truly magical place and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Room Tip: All rooms superb!

Perfect location for a safari with rangers who are knowledgeable. Great experience having morning and evening snacks and drinks on the plains. Food was lovely, no complaints at all. The lodges were homely and the mini fridge well stocked. Great trip and we saw 4 out of the big 5!

Extremely experienced Rangers creating an athmosphere of knowledge, trust and confidence. Certainly a highlight in our life. Very individual care for the guests, both at game drive and lodge. Highly recommended!
