Pumba Private Game Reserve
Awake to the sounds of the African bush veld as the sun makes its appearance on the horizon bringing with it the prospect of another perfect day. Eco friendly Pumba, a proud member of the Green Leaf Conservation Initiative, is set in the malaria-free Eastern Cape and provides an intimate African safari experience never to be forgotten.

The reserve is home to Africa’s Big Five as well as rare white lion, hippo, hyena, cheetah, giraffes, various antelope and more than 300 bird species. Feel the heartbeat of nature as you explore the reserve in custom land rovers or on guided walking safaris.

Water Lodge offers waterfront chalets overlooking Lake Cariega while Bush Lodge is set on a floodplain with scenic mountain views offering luxury thatch and glass chalets. All Chalets open onto private game viewing decks boasting plunge pools and outdoor showers. The indulgent bathrooms offer free-standing tubs and double basins, and each room is fitted with an earthenware fireplace. Whether dining indoors or under the starlit sky, meals at Pumba are simply sublime. Animal Conservation Programs at Pumba:
White Lion Introduction Programme:
Pumba Private Game Reserve is home to the second known free-ranging, self-sustainable population of White Lions in Southern Africa. The reserve is home to a pride of White Lions, Tawny Coloured split gene Lions, some of which are wild born. Pumba’s White Lion project objective was to establish a sustainable self-sufficient pride of Lions comprising of pure white and split gene animals, which has now been successfully achieved and is reinforced by being one of CNN’s Top 10 Safari destinations in the world.

Leopard Monitoring and Re-introduction Programme:
Since the opening of Pumba, signs (tracks, scats and kills) of free-ranging Leopard have been noted in the area, particularly along the drainage lines of the river courses which meander through the reserve. Pumba has rehabilitated Leopards which have come from areas where they were removed due to being categorized as problem animals.
The management objective was to develop a sustainable population of Leopards into an area where they already occur but in very limited numbers. This objective has been successfully achieved with frequent leopard sightings.
