This Eastern Cape safari lodge guarantees a unique experience as it displays breath-taking views over the watering hole, flood plains and mountain ranges. This means that, while basking in all of the luxury and warmth for which Pumba is so well known, guests enjoy spectacular views of some of Africa’s wildest and most beautiful animals as they drink, play and interact within their natural habitat.

Msenge Bush Lodge comprises 11 thatched chalets, each characterised by the extensive use of glass that gives visitors the sense of being a part of the Eastern Cape bushveld. These private bush chalets, set within the heart of any safari-lover’s dream landscape, boast dreamy bathrooms with stunning views and opulent bedrooms with private wooden decks. For an authentic experience of the African bushveld, the outdoor shower and private plunge pool invite weary guests to relax and revitalise themselves in complete privacy.

Guests are urged to embark on driving and walking safaris, accompanied by Pumba’s expert rangers and guides. The animals on the reserve guarantee delightful sightings and memorable photographs.

Take advantage of the 5-star cuisine in the cosy restaurant, or under the star-littered night skies.

The main deck has stunning views of the animals grazing and is best enjoyed while sipping on a cold beer or a glass of wine. Alternatively, there is a log fire inside for the chilly winter nights.
