Pumba Game Reserve, Eastern Cape
Lying in a particularly breathtaking setting that includes five of the world’s seven biomes, Pumba Private Game Reserve has a couple of major advantages: one, it is set in a malaria-free part of the Eastern Cape, and two, it provides really easy access to big game viewing, including the Big Five, making travelling to the nether regions of the country for luxury game viewing almost redundant.
Pumba Game Reserve lies 105 kilometres from Port Elizabeth and virtually outside historical Grahamstown. The 6 000 hectare reserve claims a list of game that includes the significant seven - giraffe, zebra, hippo, cheetah, warthog, hyena and wild dog -, the diminutive dozen (including the likes of the scrub hare, antbear, Cape fox and aardwolf) and a more than fair selection of antelope. A further draw card is free roaming white lions, there as a result of the reserve’s white lion breeding programme, whilst over 300 bird species allow for hours of restorative bird watching.
For those who want to do more than to bask in the beauty of the surrounds and easily spot animals, there are also bass fishing, spa treatments, nocturnal bush drives and walks on the wild side - walking through the bush.
The luxurious lodge at Pumba Private Game Reserve comprises 12 stone-walled, thatched, waterfront cottages. Leading off meandering timber footpaths, the cottages open up onto private timber game viewing ...
