Umlani Bushcamp Packages
See the real Africa at Umlani with its beautifully designed Eco Lodge offering intimate and thrilling wildlife encounters, award winning meals and a chance to reconnect with nature in the one of Africa's world-renowned wilderness reserves. Guests are accommodated in traditional African reed and thatch huts as well as eco Rondavels, which blend naturally with the environment and provide pure comfort.
As an ethically operated and Fair Trade certified safari camp, Umlani is dedicated to conserving the African wild and uplifting the local community. This gives guests an opportunity to have a more meaningful experience of Africa and a holiday that makes a real difference.
Umlani's philosophy of simplistic luxury and 'getting back to nature' is enhanced by the romance of operating without electricity. Enjoy the warm atmosphere of candlelight and oil lamps and open-air bush showers fuelled by wood fires.
All accommodation options have en-suite facilities including open-air bush showers for the ultimate stargazing experience. They also offer comfortable beds, crisp white linen, soft towels, mosquito netting, and insect repellent and standard bathroom amenities.
There is also complimentary bottled water, although the tap water is perfectly safe to drink.

Experience the thrill of game drives in open Land Rovers, with highly experienced rangers and trackers. At Umlani you are guaranteed an adventure of a lifetime in one of Africa's world-renowned, unspoilt wilderness reserves.
