Umlani offers guests 10 000 hectares of Timbavati wilderness to explore with over 40 mammal and 360 bird species, including the "Big 5" and the famous "White Lions".
True to its ecological ethos, Umlani is one of the few camps in the Greater Kruger National Park that functions without electrical power. More than just being ecological, the ambiance of candlelight and oil lamps rekindles the romance of the African bushveld with a time long lost.
Rooms & Suites:
Umlani Bush Camp accommodates only 16 guests in rustic yet comfortable Shangaan styled, thatched chalets all with en-suite facilities including open-air bush showers.
Four of the chalets can sleep up to four people, enabling Umlani to accommodate families.
Food & Wine:
From breakfast to brunch and lunch to dinner, Umlani offers up award winning and locally sourced, African influenced cuisine.
A particular highlight is pre-dinner drinks served around an open fire followed by dinner in either the candle lit dining room or out in the riverbed under the African stars.
A raised public area overlooking the Nshlaralumi River and a waterhole offers guests not only views over the surrounding bushveld and her wildlife but also an area where you can just simply read a book or relax.
A swimming pool furbished with hammocks is located close to the river under a canopy of trees protecting bathers from the burning African sun..
Umlani also offers on request a "tree house" overlooking a dam, approximately 3 kilometres from the lodge. This is your personal hide where you can be dropped off for a few hours and observe prolific wildlife.
Morning, afternoon and evening game drives into the surrounding Timbavati accompanied by experienced rangers and trackers in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Optional morning bush walks are available on request, these walks come highly recommended by us at Uyaphi.com (remember to pack comfortable walking boots).
This Timbavati Budget Lodge offers up the complete safari experience with game drives, walking safaris and the "tree house" adventure; all of this one of Africa's famed reserves.
