Exclusive Bookings

When booking the lodge exclusively, guests of all ages are welcome (normally 8 years and older), making for an ideal family safari destination.

The Boma

Situated above the banks of the non-perennial Dundee riverbed, our wooden-decked Boma is primarily used for evening dining. Situated under open African skies surrounded by the gentle flicker of lanterns, candlelight and open fire, listen closely for the far-off roar of the lion, the gentle coughing of the leopard or the hauntingly familiar call of the owl. Our boma dining is quiet and intimate and will certainly add to your Makumu experience. 

The Pool

Whether for a cool refreshing swim after a warm night’s sleep, or a dip to escape the hot African sun, the pool at Makumu offers it all. Built as a feature to blend in with the surrounding bushveld, don’t be surprised by the visiting elephant herds that are known to quench their thirst here during the hot midday temperatures! 


With highly experienced rangers and trackers, as well as a team of dedicated staff, you will feel comfortable every step of your journey
