Need to Know

Makumu Game Lodge has exclusive rates. You can also book your personal massage in advance. We also have Snake demonstrations from our local professional Khamai Reptile Park.


Come on safari here and enjoy game drives twice daily in open landrovers with a ranger and a Shangaan tracker helping you spot the Big Five, as well as other marvellous animals. Should you prefer late night or midday safaris, these are always available too. Early Morning Safari A dawn wake-up call for an early start, coffee or tea, morning rusks or biscuits with your ranger to discuss your safari and plan accordingly. Then later a tea break with muffins at one of the more scenic spots before winding your way back to the lodge for a mid-morning breakfast, wish-list hopefully completed! Late Afternoon Safari As with the earlier safari, times are seasonally dependent, taking into account the best possible options for viewing, when the game is most active. Perhaps a sun-downer stop for a view of the beautiful sunsets that grace this part of Africa, your favourite beverage in hand. The drive will then continue into the evening with viewing done by spotlight with the hope of seeing some of the more elusive nocturnal mammal and bird species. Then return to the Lodge for pre-dinner drinks around the fire
