Pumba was first class! from the warm towel, welcome drink and snacks on arrival, the service was the best we have ever received. On arrival we were shown around the main lodges before being taking to our lodge. It was amazing, very spacious, more welcome snacks and not to mention the private pool, decking and views over the water! On our first day we had lunch while watching the monkeys playing, breakfast the following morning watching the elephants splashing around in the water. we were really luck to have Justin as our ranger, such a lovely guy, kinda sad to say goodbye to him, even though we had only known him for 4 days it was like saying goodbye to a great friend. his knowledge of the animals was incredible, despite the rain drives he still managed to crack jokes and keep us entertained. on our first game drive within 2 minutes we came across a family of elephants then later saw giraffes, lions, cheetahs and a lion having a standoff with a rhino! we even had a leopard stash his kill under our lodge!! The staff were very friendly and the food was also amazing. We spoke with other guests who had been to other game reserves and said Pumba was by far the best! Thank you team pumba for an excellent end to a fabulous honeymoon, one we will never forget. Would love to return..... maybe for our silver anniversary! :-D

Wow what a great way to view the BIG 5!! The accommodation is superb with your own plunge pool and decking terrace. Here on an all inclusive basis, it really is a fantastic place.

We had Justin as our guide his knowledge about the animals was excellent. Pumbas games reserve white lions did not let us down posing for some great camera shots.

Just got the Buffalo and Rhino to see then that’s the big 5 done.....

Well worth the drive.....

How many places can you visit in the worlde where you are so spoilt by the view position staff amenities food wine and the animals.funny enough the only one you don't want to meet is the leopard who patrols the walkways (They have him catered for so you're safe) just an amazing place and a trip highlight particularly setu the game rangers driving and knowledge.
