Welcome to the luxurious world of Umzolozolo Private Safari Lodge

A typical day at Umzolozolo Private Safari Lodge starts before dawn, when you open your eyes and take in the ambience of your luxurious bushland home. The bush is beckoning and it’s time to get to the lodge for coffee and a muffin before the first game drive of the day.

From the moment you get onto the game viewer, your eyes and ears will be peeled for every rustle in the bush; every movement in the tall grass and everything your experienced guide points out. Umzolozolo’s amazing guides let their experience in the bush guide them to wildlife, and the sightings on these game drives will be imprinted in your memory forever. From a pride of lions feasting on a recent kill to an elephant enjoying a mud bath…it’s all been seen many times on Umzolozolo’s game drives through the plains of Nambiti Private Game Reserve.

After the game drive, it’s time for a sumptuous breakfast of fruit, cereals, pastries and a whole lot more. Full English breakfasts are also available as you contemplate the beauty of your surroundings.

Lying back on the deck adjacent to Umzolozolo’s rim flow pool is an ideal way to while away the rest of the morning. Scanning the plains, you might be lucky enough to see some of the abundant wildlife grazing. Another option is to head to Tulana Spa and let the beauty therapists’ highly qualified hands massage away your stress and worries. Pampering manicures and pedicures are also on the menu.

Later in the afternoon, after a decadent high tea conjured up by the chef and his team, it’s time to head back into the bush for the second time. This time, there will be sundowners to enjoy while you watch the sun start to set over the African bush. Later, you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink by the light of the fire, while you share stories of the day’s game viewing.

Depending on the weather, dinner will be served in the boma or by the fireplace in the lounge. The complete experience of a day at Umzolozolo ends with the sounds of the bush sending you off to sleep.
