At Ufumene Game Lodge guests can be sure that the game drives and bush walks will live up to their imagination! Not only will you have an excellent chance of close encounters, but you may even be spoiled with the more elusive wildlife sightings.
Our expert guides will take you on a spectacular sunrise or sunset game drive, in an exploration of the large variety of animals found at Ufumene Game Lodge. There are two game drives per day, during which your experienced game ranger will share their extensive knowledge and love of the African bush with you. Each drive lasts about two hours.
During a bush walk guests will have the opportunity to take a closer look at animal tracks, birds, different types of indigenous vegetation, as well as any smaller details of the bush they find fascinating. This is also the ideal time for birdwatchers to get a closer look at their favourite bird species. Make sure that you wear comfortable walking shoes and have protection from the sun.
More than 50 km’s of bulldozer cut gravel roads crisscross the Ufumene Game Lodge, and the further couple of 100 km’s of natural bush trails, cut by the animals as they walked through the bush in search of water and food present visitors with easy to follow trails. Following these trails is the best way to explore the bush on foot or horse. Move slowly, dress to blend in and be as quiet as you can is the best way to experience wildlife in their natural habitat.
Exploring the bush on a horse is a wonderful way to experience wildlife. You will see much more than on foot or from a vehicle and you will be able to get closer to the game animals.
4 horses are available for guests who want to ride on the farm. They are well trained, reliable and easy to ride. The rides vary in pace and duration and are tailored to suit our guests. Riders will be guided by an experienced staff member. We have body protectors and helmets in various sizes. We practice safe riding for the sake of both rider and horse, the tack and equipment are kept in perfect condition.
Guests can choose between English saddles, an Australian stock saddle and South African hand made endurance saddles.
