Pumba Private Game Reserve, in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, is a 5-star wildlife sanctuary known as one of the top safari destinations in Africa. Easily accessible with just a 75-minute drive from Port Elizabeth Airport, the reserve is malaria-free and is a perfect addition to a Garden Route holiday itinerary. A high population of wildlife makes for outstanding game drives at this private game reserve. Lake Cariega attracts a variety of birds, making the location a birdwatcher’s paradise. Accompanied by passionately expert game rangers you will track and see an abundance of wildlife including the magnificent Big 5. Pumba Private Game Reserve is also home to the rare white lion as well as hippo, hyena, cheetah, giraffe, and a large variety of antelope. Twice-daily game drives are complimented with a cozy coffee stop at sunrise and a spectacular sundowner stop in the wild as you witness skies turning crimson above expansive African plains.

 

Bushwalks allow one to experience the wild up close as you traverse the savannah. Whether taking photographic drives, swimming or being pampered at the spa, Pumba promises to give you an exclusive and serene experience and leave a footprint of Africa in your heart.
