Pumba Private Game Reserve


Msenge Bush Lodge Location Map

Msenge Bush Lodge is situated on the 6,500 Pumba Private Game Reserve, only 105 km from Port Elizabeth. The reserve is malaria-free, and offers Big 5 game viewing, including free roaming white lion, wild dogs, hyena and cheetah.

Overlooking a small watering hole on a flood plain, the lodge offers stunning mountain views. There is also a Wellness Centre, which offers guests the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing treatment in luxurious and peaceful surroundings. The Centre includes a steam room, hydro therapy bath, private pool, and a mini gym.

Game drives take place on the reserve in open Land Rovers, in search of Africa's wildlife.

In between drives, guests can relax on the main game viewing deck, or in the guest lounge in front of the fireplace, on the pool deck around the pool, or in the library. There is also an Internet office and a Bush Bar.

Exquisite cuisine can be enjoyed in the restaurant or on the open deck overlooking the watering hole, or around the fire in the outside boma.

The lodge offers 11 thatched, glass enclosed chalets, each in it's own private bush setting - giving the ultimate feeling and experience of an African bush safari.

Each chalet is air-conditioned, and has a spacious en-suite bathroom, with a separate bath and shower. Outside your chalet is your own private game viewing deck and plunge pool, plus an outdoor shower.
