Enjoy a malaria-free bush camp experience at Pumba Water Lodge, which is set against the backdrop of the magnificent Eastern Bushveld.

Situated right on Lake Kariega, you can observe the Big Five, including free-roaming white lions, wild dogs, hyenas and cheetah unobtrusively from the lodge. Every one of the twelve stone-walled, thatched, waterfront cottages at Pumba Water Lodge has breathtaking views over the lake. The bedrooms and bathrooms offer under floor heating, dreamy, free-standing bathtubs, double basins, terry-towel bathrobes and splendid appointments to create an ambience of luxurious indulgence. The thatched restaurant serves an African buffet and meal venues include the dining room, main decks or boma. Pumba Water Lodge can also arrange private candlelit dinners for a more intimate dining experience. Day safaris are led by qualified game rangers, and include 3-hour game drives with meals and drinks available. These drives are conducted in luxury game-viewing vehicles and provide blankets, scarves and beanies, as well as light snacks, beverages and binoculars.

The Pumba Water Lodge is located in the heart of the 6,500-hectare Pumba Private Game Reserve, in the heart of the Eastern Cape's Malaria-free game viewing region, only 105 km from Port Elizabeth and just 20 km from Grahamstown. Nearby activities available include game viewing, game fishing, golf and horse riding.
