Have spent three fabulous days in the reserve. We were extremely lucky both with the weather, and that we managed to see the bug 5 close up. I must say a big thank you to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable. I would like to say a special thank you to Justin the head ranger for a great 3 days. His knowledge was unsurpassable. Also he had a great personality, which made him extremely easy to interact with.

Amazing experience that surpassed the expectations of my family and I. There was a surreal interaction with the wildlife as well as top of the range service from all staff. The only issue was the room being slightly cold at night.

We had a fantastic family holiday with friends and were extremely well looked after with great food and exceptional attention to detail. Even though it was winter, which was very well compensated for by the roaring fires and hot water bottles, it was warm during the day and we saw and did everything we wished to. we felt it was a really good time of year to visit.

Pumba Game Reserve made our holiday to South Africa. The place is absolutely amazing and so are the safari animals and staff. The lodges were pure luxury and could rival any 5 star hotel. We expected them to be basic but this was not the case. Extra details such as chocolates on pillows and hot water bottles placed in your bed at night. We loved every minute and went as a family of adults. The game drives were full of fun and we saw all the Big5. I highly recommend this as a holiday destination and you won't be disappointed. Small reserve in terms of number of guests which made it relaxing.

Both my hubby and I had a fantastic stay in the Bush lodge. The staff were wonderful and could not do enough. Our ranger Kelly was excellent, extremely welcoming, knowledgeable and she made our stay all the more enjoyable. The experiences on our drives were unbelievable. Both my hubby and I agree that our brief stay in Pumba was the highlight of our honeymoon. Thank you for that experience - we will never forget it!
