Umlani Bush Camp is set in the heart of the Timbavati Game Reserve, offering superb rustic accommodation, hospitality and an authentic safari atmosphere and all of this mixed with some of the best wildlife in the whole of South Africa.
The thatched chalets are roomy yet rustic in layout with nice open verandas; the shower area is open to the heavens. The beds are more than comfortable, the linen being crisp and the surrounding mozzie net allows one to have a perfect night rest.
Remember that Umlani is not fenced, so walking around late at night will most probably result in one bumping into something that has horns or teeth and this will never result in a favourable outcome for you. So be careful and instead call the night guard for assistance.
Without question, our favourite aspect of this camp (apart from the cold beers) is that fact that there is no electricity. At night when the camp turns into a wonderland of oil burning lanterns, one gets the sense that one is in deepest darkest Africa - and this is what Umlani is all about, Africa as it was. Yes, there is an option to charge cameras, tablets and phones, so fear not about those batteries dying when out on a game drive or bush walk.
All photographs have been taken by us here at Uyaphi.com with the sole purpose of showcasing the lodge and area from our point of view.
