  • Award winning & excellent rated

Umlani Bush Camp is the work of a close-knit family, and that permeates every detail and activity.

The fresh pastries for breakfast – prepared by chef Goodness (yes, her real name), the stories rangers and trackers share during game drives, the way the camp is subtlety lit by countless candles and lanterns every night, and how managers Morné en Melissa Hamlyn know you by name before you even arrive.

Your safari home is a simple, yet comfortable one, in the heart of the Timbavati Game Reserve.

With limited cell phone or WiFi service for guests, tell people at home you will be in sync with the elephants – instead of your Instagram account. For real wildlife-seekers: climb the ladder of the Umlani Treehouse.

High up in the wriggly branches, it is just you and the bush. Stay for a couple of hours (with cold drinks, soft pillows and warm blankets in reach), or spend the night while elephants rumble underneath. Overlook endless treetops, and fall in love with this land in a heartbeat.
