Today we fly to Skukuza airport and then transfer to Sabi Sands, just outside Kruger National Park. We will check into our beautiful, luxury bush lodge for the next 2 nights. Umkumbe Bush Lodge is located in the Sabie Game Reserve, considered by many to be the premier wildlife reserve in South Africa, and unfenced from the western boundary of the Kruger National Park. Overlooking a waterhole, Umkumbe Bush Lodge is perfectly situated in one of the best Big Five game viewing destinations in Africa.
Enjoy the rest of the day at the lodge until our first game drive this evening. Built around a Weeping Boer Bean, the main lodge overlooks a variety of habitats – a winding drainage line leading to the seasonal Sand River, a forested thicket and a section of open savanna. Guests can wildlife watch, relax and take in the wilderness surrounds in between activities and meals.
