Reviews from previous Umlani Bushcamp guests
“The camp is simple yet has everything you need for a unique bush experience. Great food, experienced guides and wonderful staff. We saw every animal you could imagine and felt safe and comfortable. Would certainly visit again,” wrote shirley83001 on their TripAdvisor page.
Safari59086504897 added; “Bring your family, friends and discover for yourself why less is often more on a safari. At Umlani you will find less fuss, less rules, less people – a recipe for true connections with nature, with people and often with yourself. Be sure to spend a night on the sleep out deck serenaded by the sounds of the wild. Quickly you will find yourself part of the family at the camp and the magic grows from there.”
