Tourism Update: #RevivalShowcase
Welcome to the Home of Endless Views (Makumu means ‘endless view’ in the Xitsonga language). Makumu Private Game Lodge, located in the ‘Big Five’ Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, is an intimate oasis surrounded by the harshness, unpredictability and unspoiled appeal of the African bushveld.
Six luxurious suites in three villas, accommodating a maximum of 12 guests, ensure an exclusive blend of absolute comfort, style, and privacy. Inspired by the Bushman, Ndebele and Zulu tribes of Africa, the suites are decorated with their own unique character. Each is large and spacious, offering a King Suite and smaller Impi Suite.
Game viewing at Makumu is opportunistic with the ranger and tracker team offering a multifaceted safari experience including day and night game drives, walking, tracking and observation from a hide. An exciting addition is iThumbela, the Photographic Bunker, where guests have the opportunity to take stunning photographs of the wildlife at eye level as they drink water or clean at the pan.
Enjoy the outdoors and watch the wildlife meander in the bush while taking a refreshing swim in our pool overlooking the watering hole, have dinner lit by candles and lanterns on our wooden-decked, floating boma and listen to the far-off roar of the lion and the gentle rasping of the leopard while tucking into a delectable meal.
