Pumba Water Lodge

Awake to the sounds of the African bushveld as the sun makes its appearance on the horizon

Located just an hour from Port Elizabeth and 15 minutes from Grahamstown

This reserve is home to the rare white lion.

Pumba Water Lodge is located in the Eastern Cape’s Pumba Private Game Reserve elevated on the hilly banks above Lake Cariega.

12 luxurious stone and thatch cottages enjoy stunning water and bush views which can be fully appreciated from private decks and plunge pools. Comfortable, split-level rooms are warmed by central fireplaces and have a welcoming, lived-in feel.

Chalets are linked to the main lodge via a wooden walkway, which leads out onto the lake in a jetty. Soak up the peaceful environment, surrounded by water and the lush wilderness further afield.

The lodge is designed for maximum appreciation of the great outdoors and the pristine beauty which is Pumba. This reserve is home to the rare white lion.

The reserve is home to Africa’s Big Five as well as rare white lion, hippo, hyena, cheetah, giraffes, various antelope and more than 300 bird species. Feel the heartbeat of nature as you explore the reserve in custom land rovers or on guided walking safaris.
