Umlani Bush Camp lies in the Timbavati reserve, adjacent to Kruger National Park. The atmosphere is sympathetic, staff is exceptional, the food wonderful, the accommodation perfect, the game drives exceeded my expectations (although I visited Umlani 10 years ago andf therefore knew what to expect). This is a unique experience!!! Wifi is available from 10:00-16:00. We saw many animals from close by.
There is nothing I can think of that should be changed. This is a bush camp, an eco-lodge, which brings along some limitations. It's all part of the experience!!
Gorgeous huts, well equipped yet “back to nature”
Easy to get to, looked after like royalty and huge traversing area meaning all drives were very different. Guides treated all wildlife with respect. 10/10.
The facilities, especially eco hut rooms were splendid. All aspects of the camp were well maintained and the swimming pool was an excellent way of cooling off on a hot day in between game drives. Watching the wildlife from the comfort of the bar while sipping on a cold beverage is out of this world - make sure you take some binoculars for the smaller game that can be seen. All of the staff have dedicated themselves to ensuring your stay is as best as it could be and they are all knowledgeable, approachable and above all - brimming with South African hospitality. I can't wait to return....
There was nothing about this place that I didn't like. The entire stay was simply excellent.
We opted for this lodge cause first of all, many of the reviews pointed to the BIG 5 sightings during the safari drives. Our expectations were exceeded as we saw the big 5 together with many other big animals almost every day. Giraffes, elephants, deers and others roamed around the lodge especially at the waterhole just in front of the dining veranda! .... the experience in the tree house is unforgetable! The knowledgeable rangers and trackers were spot on ...they took us just few feet away from lions, lioness, cheetah, leopard, elephants, buffalo, rhinocerous, zebras, giraffes, deers and others! Breakfast, lunch and dinner were more than adequate, very good and varied together with an open bar. The staff were very sweet and gave their best. The lodge is not crowded and travellers make friends in a couple of hours together. The spacious hut (room) included all the necessities and bed was really comfortable.
Personally we would have loved more appropriate partitioning in the toilet area inside our room istead of curtain.
