The Umlani Bushcamp is within South Africa's Timbavati Nature Reserve bordering without a fence onto the Kruger National Park.
Home to the Big Five and a great variety of wildlife, guests, experience fascinating safari drives and bush walks. Set off the beaten tourist track; this safari lodge provides travellers with intimate and thrilling wildlife encounters, delicious meals and a fantastic opportunity to reconnect with nature in one of Africa's unspoilt wilderness reserves.
During the day, in between wildlife viewing activities in Timbavati, guests may relax in the hammocks around the swimming pool and sip a refreshing beverage. Alternatively, the bush bar and deck overlooking the riverbed and waterhole make for a beautiful place for socialising.
Guests seeking privacy and tranquillity may visit the Umlani Bushcamp tree house which lies about 2.7 km away from the camp. Overlooking a dam, guests may enjoy the purest nature around them for an hour or two comforted with blankets and big pillows as well as drinks on hand. Pre-dinner drinks are served in the evening in the African style boma around the fire which is followed by the lodge's delicious meals served in the candlelit dining venue.
The reserve's wealth of birdlife, flora, fauna as well as cultural heritage makes it a unique destination. Guests enjoy two safari drives a day which is accompanied by professional game rangers in open Land Rovers. Departing during dawn as the sun rises in the bushveld, guests have the chance to encounter the reserve's untamed wildlife in their natural habitat.
The lodge's night drive leaves during the late afternoon. Optional morning bush walks offer clients a way to explore on foot being able to learn about the smaller creatures which are often ignored from the vehicles.
