It is easy to get so distracted with finding the big 5, that all the other amazing animals get overlooked. Apart from the Big 5, Pumba Private Game Reserve is home to the rare white lion, hippo, hyena, cheetah, giraffes, various antelope and more than 300 bird species, to name a few.
Kids on Safari
Guest safety is an important factor we take into account. On game drives we are in animal territory, therefore strict rules must apply. The vehicles are open along the sides and at times the roads can be quite bumpy.
- For their own safety, children under the age of 6 years are not permitted to go on normal big 5 game drives.
- We do offer a “kids one-hour game” drive after breakfast, with species book. Children should be accompanied by an adult.
