Makumu Private Game Lodge is located in the ‘Big Five’ Klaserie Private Nature Reserve in Hoedspruit, South Africa. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is one of the largest privately owned nature reserves in South Africa, covering some 60,000 hectares and forming part of the greater Kruger National Park.
Makumu is an intimate oasis surrounded by the harshness, unpredictability and unspoiled appeal of the African bushveld. Three luxurious and beautifully appointed villas, accommodating a maximum of twelve guests, ensure an exclusive blend of absolute comfort, style and privacy.
Game viewing at Makumu is opportunistic, with no time constraints nor schedules, the ultimate benefit of exclusivity. Enjoy day and night game drives, walking, tracking and quiet observation from a hide, all part of the Makumu wilderness experience.
The rock pool overlooking a watering hole provides the ideal cool off while spotting game. Shaded loungers beckon for an afternoon siesta before setting out with the dipping sun in an open land rover. Pearl spotted owl, giraffe, hyena, wild dog, zebra, warthog, elephant and vervet monkey are amongst the frequent visitors, not forgetting a variety of antelope: kudu, impala, waterbuck and nyala. Back at the all inclusive lodge, situated above the banks of the Dundee riverbed, the wooden decked boma offers the perfect spot for evening dining. Situated under the vast African skies, bathed in the gentle light of candles and lanterns, guests can listen to the far off roar of the lion and the gentle rasping of the leopard while tucking into a delectable meal.
The winner and their guest will be staying in either a Bushman, Ndebele or Zulu Villa. Inspired by the Bushman, Ndebele and Zulu tribes of Africa, the villas are decorated with their own unique character. Each is large and spacious, to reflect the open air and space of the African bush, with a master bedroom and a smaller second bedroom. The ensuite bathrooms have an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a perfectly positioned ‘tub with a view’, while the wooden decks each boast a hammock perfect for those lazy afternoons.
