Home to 2 separate lodges, Water Lodge and Msenge Bush Lodge, Pumba Private Game Reserve is situated in the malaria-free Eastern Cape just an hours drive from Port Elizabeth.

The lodges at Pumba offer a rare level of comfort and tranquillity in a remarkable setting while friendly, welcoming staff and informative rangers help make a stay at Pumba truly relaxing. The food is outstanding and excellent South African wines are never far away. The reserve is malaria-free and is home to the 'Big Five including one of only three populations of the free-roaming white lion in South Africa, hyena and cheetah.

The vegetation of the area combines dense bushveld and grassland with the Pumba Water Lodge positioned overlooking Lake Kariega where many animals come to drink. The main lodge at Water Lodge offers magnificent views from the timber deck and each cottage has a private deck with lake views.  

The newest addition to Pumba Private Game Reserve is the Msenge Bush Lodge, 11 exclusive glass-encased, thatched chalets, are complete with spacious bedrooms leading out to your private deck, plunge pool and outdoor shower. The main lodge at Msenge Bush Lodge is a circular thatched building with glass folding doors creating an indoor/outdoor relaxation and dining space.

Activities at the lodge include morning and late afternoon/early evening game drives, walking safari's, birding safaris and stargazing. The Msenge Bush Lodge features a fitness room and spa which is available for both Bush and Water Lodge guests. For those special moments, Pumba can arrange private bush dinners, dinners at the bird hide overlooking the lake or private dinners served on your own deck. Pumba Private Game Reserve is proud to be involved in several environmental conservation and community upliftment programmes in the Eastern Cape areas.
