Big 5 Safari Drives


Pumba carefully selects their rangers to ensure you can get the most out of all your game drives. We have many different species of animals roaming our plains, ranging from our big predators such as Lions, Cheetahs, Buffalo, Leopards and Rhinos. We also have various types of buck and grazers. While our Big 5 are the main highlight, our land boasts an array of various fauna and flora. If you look carefully you can see horns/antlers that animals have left. We have morning, afternoon and specially arranged evening game drives.

Birding Safari's


South Africa is home to many different species of birds, many being found in the Eastern Cape. Bird lovers can arrange a special bird safari- where they take a journey through the Afromontane Forest. Using modern technology our Rangers are able to track and call birds closer for you to view.


Between May - September 2016 we will be offering morning and evening yoga classes. Our yoga practices to make you feel at ease, regardless of flexibility or age, so that you can return from your mat happier, open and balanced to make the most of everyday.


For the fitness conscious  Msenge Bush Lodge has a well-equipped fitness centre. The gym is fully enclosed by class and is well air-conditioned. 

The steam room, spa and plunge pool will provide you with the perfect end to a workout.

Bass Fishing

For the ultimate in serenity and relaxation enjoy a day of bass fishing on the gorgeous Lake Cariega. We will provide you with everything you need, including fishing rods, lures and tackles. This makes for an ideal family outing culminated with picnic baskets or sundowners at the end of the day.


Archery is an ancient sport that will test your aim, fitness and skill. At the archery range, you will be briefed and given a demonstration - and then you will get the opportunity to try it for yourself. Buttresses are placed at specific distances, making your task both challenging and interesting.

Guided Bush Walks

Explore our beautiful landscape on foot. Our qualified rangers will plan a specific route according to the fauna and flora in which you and your partner, or group, are most interested. Walk through the reserve accompanied by the majestic silence of the African Bushveld.

Star Gazing

Africa is known for its high, open skies. These are even more magical when out in the South African bushveld, where the stars and moon are the only sources of light. Our field guides will interpret and reveal the wonders of the South Celestial Skies.
