General Information


To keep the authentic, back-to-nature experience, all lighting is done using candles and lanterns. We do have international plug points, aircons and fans in each suite.


We experience hot, humid summers and mild winters (cold in evenings).



The water at Makumu comes from our own resources (borehole) and goes through a Reverse Osmosis system therefore making all the water out our taps perfectly safe to drink.


We are in a Malaria infected area, however it is a low risk malaria area. We have the camp sprayed for mosquitoes regularly and supply our guests with mosquito repellent in each suite and around the lodge.
