We absolutely loved Umlani, the wildlife we saw in 4 days was amazing and the people were all fantastic. The food was exceptional. We couldn't wait for our next game drive and wished we could have stayed longer - we will be back!

This is not roughing it, even though there is no electricity (other than for charging batteries) the rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. I honestly preferred the lack of electricity, it was very peaceful. From the lunch deck we saw giraffes, elephants and antelope.

On our safari drives we saw lions, leopards, buffalo, giraffes, all kinds of antelope, elephants and so much more. Sadly we did not see a rhino but it is just luck to see them. We did see them in Kruger though.

Over all I highly recommend Umlani and will be back.

My family and friends were there in January. I didn't know what to expect, but once we arrived we felt so welcome by the staff and by nature. The experience will stay in my mind forever, just as my first time in Machu Picchu has withstood the 40 years of memories. It's a mystical experience made possible by the expert safari guides, staff at the bush camp, the surrounding beauty, and comfortable accommodations. Did not miss any of the electronic gadgets that surround my every day life in the States.

I spent three days at Umlani and didn't want to leave!! I loved every minute of it, the game drives, the food, the hospitality, the accommodation, the pools - the wild animals roaming around - it was the experience of a lifetime. Given the opportunity, I'll be back!

4 days safari in Umlani was beyond my expectations. Thank you to all the staff for your hospitality. I really enjoyed my all-too-short visit to Umlani. I'm thrilled to had a chance to “sample” your little piece of Africa – something I never dreamed would happen. Your place, people, animals, food … just fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. The quality and attention to detail in the accommodation, food, game drives was exceptional. Just make a booking and be picked up from the airport and don't worry about a thing - just enjoy the experience. Up close and personal with lots of wildlife. Experienced trackers and guides. Limited numbers keeps it more intimate and personal. Highly recommend this camp.
