Pumba Game Reserve comprises over 6,000 hectares and offers Big Five game-viewing from two luxury lodges, the family-friendly Pumba Water Lodge and the stylish Msenge Bush Lodge.

Pumba Water Lodge has a superb setting overlooking Lake Kariega. It offers stunning views of the wilderness and water from every vantage point, with timber decks surrounding the 12 stone cottages and main lodge. The lodge's rustic appearance belies the sophisticated elegance. The 8 Impala rooms are well appointed with concertina glass doors opening wide onto the deck overlooking the lake, a full bathroom, large deck with plunge pool and outdoor shower. The three Gemsbok suites have a separate sitting room with a double sleeper couch so these are ideal for families. Finally the Kudu Suite is a glamorous two bedroom suite, both en suite, with separate sitting room, large deck, plunge pool and private steam room accessed off the deck, again great for families who want to splash out.

Game viewing at Pumba Water Lodge is done from special custom-made open Landrovers with elevated seating.
