Recently stayed here as part of our honeymoon. It is an amazing place! Our chalet was fabulous. Food was great. The highlight of the trip was our daily safari drives with our ranger Thomas. He is so knowledgeable and went out of his way to help spot the big 5...we saw all except the elusive leopard! We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to spoil themselves while having a great adventure at the same time!

Absolutely perfect, there was nothing I would change. Staff were exceptional, food was out of this world. Definitely the best holiday we have had. The rooms were luxurious, the restaurant amazing. Just fab.

This was a fantastic end to our trip with amazing staff, facilities and a beautiful reserve with plenty of wildlife. An amazing experience made very special by a great team. White lions were amazing as were the elephants, close up and VERY personal!! :)

We cannot recommend Pumba highly enough, 5* and more! The game drives were brilliant and we had the best ranger Dean. A lovely surprise to have a hot chocolate on the morning drive and G&T on the evening drive! The accomodation was amazing and so comfortable and the food was brilliant, almost too much food!! I cannot fault our stay here and will be recommending to everyone! Thank you for helping make our honeymoon so amazing.

Whilst the rooms were excellent, the overall experience was disappointing. Food was average and game viewing OK but just not the bush we love. Birding also only average.
No special touches to enhance safari like bush breakfasts, lapa dinners or romantic turndowns. Also, expensive for what you get.
