Due to the position and openness of Umkumbe Safari lodge, there are excellent game viewing opportunities for small mammals, various types of antelope and much more throughout the day. Umkumbe is a well-run and comfortably luxurious game lodge that strives to fulfil their guests’ desires of an unprecedented wildlife experience. The perfect location of this lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve allows guests to participate in exciting game drives to see an amazing array of wild animals. This includes the magnificent Big Five (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo), wild dog, cheetah and hundreds more. The name Big Five comes from hunters of the past who claimed these animals were the most dangerous to hunt. Today they are perhaps the most famous animals in the world, and the most sought after for viewing by tourists. Umkumbe is very good at offering safari drives that include the Big Five and plenty of additional animals that you often do not even expect to see.
