What a perfect way to end our Garden Route road trip with a 2 night stay in Pumba Bush lodge. We arrived later in the afternoon than we would have wanted...but still had time for a quick bite of lunch before the 3.30pm afternoon safari with our ranger Dean. There is also a 7am morning safari, which is definitely worth the early start! As already stated the lodges are amazing, with every convenience, including hairdryer, stocked mini fridge, UK plug, and wonderful views. But it's the attention to detail which impresses - not just the chocolate on the pillow every night, but the little card saying good night with the weather forecast for the following day, and a little animal related bedtime tale. It is such a relaxing experience. The food is amazing, and there is always a choice. Wi fi is limited to the main lodge, so after dinner, we enjoyed a glass of wine while checking on emails in the lounge area. Perfect!!

We had a excellent stay at the lodge where we found the most delightful management and attentive staff. A wonderful experience which we would have no problem in recommending to others. The game drives were very well organised with experienced guides who were dedicated to you for the duration of your stay, small groups so you gain the best experience. Highly recommend this Game Reserve.

Pity was raining so hard as it wasn't a pleasant experience. The food was really good though and our ranger did try his best but it just was raining to hard to see anything. We were lucky to see Nic he is a beautiful elephant

Thank you kindly for sharing your experience at Pumba. Its great to hear that you enjoyed our really good food and got to spot Nic. Being a reserve that is dependant on natural elements like the weather it's not always a guarantee to see the wildlife, we hope that next time you return our rangers and the weather will have better luck! Safe travels

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!
