Exclusive African safaris at Makumu Private Game Lodge in Hoedspruit.
TFG Media Article
Makumu Private Game Lodge has been featured on Getaway Magazine, giving you and in depth look inside iThumbela – one of the first subterranean photo bunkers in the Greater Kruger!
International Tourism Film Festival - Africa
Makumu Private Game Lodge is beyond proud to have received TWO Gold Awards at this year's International Tourism Film Festival Africa that was held in Cape Town on the 28th of May 2021. The competition was strong with 865 entries from 97 countries.
Their video on iThumbela, an underground photographic bunker, came first in the category Tourism Services, in both the Africa and International divisions!!
A special thank you to Joggie Botha from Travel Brand who, together with Makumu’s owner Stefan Breuer 's footage, created this award-winning tourism video.
The aim of the festival is to reward excellence in digital marketing campaigns that focus specifically on tourism-related products and services.
'iThumbela' as the bunker has been named, which loosely translated from the Xitsonga language means ‘place to hide', is sunken below ground and overlooks a watering hole, offering guests the opportunity to photograph wildlife coming to the water to cool down or drink, at ground level. A great addition to the Makumu safari scene, this experience will particularly appeal to expert photographers looking for a completely unique angle from which to photograph game, birdlife and animal behaviour.
Elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, hyena, leopard, a variety of bird species and many other game regularly frequent the dam. Serious photographers also have the option of booking a private photographic safari where they have exclusive access to the bunker, a private guide and safari vehicle for a day, or for the duration of their stay.

Makumu Private Game Lodge extends its safari offering by introducing a subterranean photographic hide, the first of its kind in the Greater Kruger region
With Makumu aptly meaning ‘endless view’ in the Xitsonga language, owner Stefan Breuer has always had a passion for photography, inspired by the magnificent landscapes of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve which he visited in his childhood, and which has been his African home for the past 20 years.
