The Bush Lodge, also known as Pumba Msenge Lodge, is all about the relaxation that can only be experienced within the serenity of the African bush. This Eastern Cape safari lodge guarantees a unique experience as it displays breath-taking views over the watering hole, flood plains and mountain ranges. This means that, while basking in all of the luxury and warmth for which Pumba is so well known, guests enjoy spectacular views of some of Africa’s wildest and most beautiful animals as they drink, play and interact within their natural habitat.
Feel one with nature in your own private glass enclosed chalet, as you watch the South African sun bid you goodnight over the distant hills. Complete relaxation is yours as you gaze out from your wooden deck, cool down in your private plunge pool or take a refreshing evening shower surrounded by the African bushveld. Unrivalled cuisine or a traditional African braai in a bush boma under the starlit sky will provide a sumptuous close to each day.
The Bush Lodge offers 11 luxurious, glass enclosed thatched chalets, each in its own private bush setting, which flow naturally into the African Bushveld, allowing you to become one with nature. Private timber game-viewing decks overlooking a watering hole on a floodplain and stunning mountain views complete this tranquil setting.
