The two non-perennial rivers that majestically meander through the area attracts a diverse variety of birds and wildlife, including Lion, White Rhino, Buffalo, Leopard, Cheetah and other Africa game. Visitors are exposed to the magnificent views of the majestic Drakensberg Mountains from the reserves' natural vantage points.
Early morning and evening game drives are conducted in open 4 x 4 Safari vehicles. Guided bush walks and game viewing drives are conducted by qualified Rangers. You are encouraged to experience a bush walk where you will be amazed by the intricate wonders of the African bush. This is where the Umhalmetsi experience is so different and dedicated. The Rangers point out not only the Big 5 but all the other fascinating components of the fauna and flora that are often overlooked.
Umhlametsi is a wonderful venue for wildlife, birding, hiking, touring and golfing. Umhlametsi is close to the Orpen and Phalaborwa Gates of the Kruger National Park, the majestic Drakensberg and the spectacular Blyde River Canyon.
For the golf enthusiast, the famous Hans Merensky golf course is in nearby Phalaborwa and Hoedspruit has its own challenging and beautiful 9-hole, 18 tee course. Experience a game of golf while observing impala, warthog, duiker and other species of game grazing peacefully alongside you on the golf course.
