#GuestSafariReview : Miriam’s Wildlife Dreams Come True at Umkumbe Safari Lodge

Umkumbe Safari Lodge is one of the most affordable safari lodges in the premier Sabi Sand Game Reserve. It’s a lodge that focuses on game viewing, rather than the frills and spills of high-end safari living. Accommodation is authentic, simple and offers all of the creature comforts from home. Umkumbe is ideally located on the banks of the seasonal Sand River, and enjoys ample sightings of leopards and elephants in front of camp. As a matter of fact, guests often relax in the splash pool and view game from the comfort of the deck. This is Miriam’s second visit to Umkumbe, and we definitely think it won’t be her last. Our Instagram guru, Gemma, reached out to Miriam in an effort to get her feedback.

Here is her #GuestSafariReview of Umkumbe Safari Lodge :

Hello Gemma,

It was actually my second stay at Umkumbe – so in love with this place!

Of course you can use some of the pictures with giving credit. I have had several favourite sightings during my two stays at Umkumbe. Of course the leopards were magnificent. But on the last stay the first night we had an encounter with a HUGE herd of elephants, from tiny babies to a group of bulls following the herd.

It’s been my 4th time in South Africa and I would always come back for the nature, people, game encounters etc.

Let me know if you need any more information.
