Can’t wait to go back!!
Me and my boyfriend had an incredible time at Umlani Bushcamp. The guests, staff, ranger, tracker, hosts and everyone else involved was really nice, and there was such a welcoming atmosphere. We saw a lot of incredible wildlife, and it was a trip I will fondly remember. The drives are comfortable and exciting. We stayed for two nights, and my only regret is not staying longer. 3-4 nights would have been perfect. We loved the fact there was a rustic feel to the place without the readily available WiFi and elextricity in the lodges, although there were spaces where one could charge phones and access the internet. The communal dinners with other guests and staff gave a great community feel. We stayed in the treehouse one night, where you really feel like you are in the middle of nature away from civilisation. The beautiful sunrise I will not forget. It was a little bit scary at first however, so would not recommend to do this alone.

Custo benefício desproporcional
As acomodações são confortáveis em relação à área onde o hotel está situado, porém o custo não guarda correspondência com as condições oferecidas. Além disso, somente na saída nos foi informado que teríamos que pagar pela manutenção da via de acesso ao hotel.
