Hakuna Matata means

Imagine placing one foot outside your front door and being showered with the raw magnificence of the African bush. At Pumba Msenge Bush Lodge in the Pumba Private Game Reserve, this becomes a reality as guests are encouraged to unburden their minds in the green heart of the Eastern Cape, surrounded by lush veld and Africa’s Big 5.

Along with the Big 5, the reserve is home to white lion and a myriad of animal and bird species. From the comfort of your custom Land Rover or on guided walking safari, keep your eyes peeled for exciting wildlife as the sun rises or casts its last rays over the dramatic landscape. Other activities include bass fishing, archery, horse riding and golf.  

The Msenge Bush Lodge offers 11 glass-enclosed thatched chalets, tucked in between rustling leaves and the mellifluous sounds of the wild. Each room comes complete with four-poster beds, mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms. Connect with the bushveld from the privacy of your game-viewing deck overlooking a waterhole. Round off a delectable African fusion dinner by stargazing under a velvet sky – from your own plunge pool and deck.
