Umkumbe Safari Lodge


... is located in Sabi Sand South in the Kruger Private Reserves area in the Northeast of South Africa.

Situated above the seasonal Sabi River, this simple lodge has pleasant public areas leading out to a nice deck area with a decent pool. Guest accommodation is in seven simple chalets, two pairs being connected for use by families.

Activities are centred on vehicle and walking safari, with wildlife viewing in this Sabi Sand South area being very reliable year round. That said, the lodge has very limited traversing rights over and area 8km by 1km, with river frontage only at one end.

Umkumbe Safari Lodge is by far the lowest cost option in this famous Sabi Sand area. The fact that it is owner-run should be a positive, but the reality is that the place does little to live up to its prime location.

In need of major investment and better traversing rights.
