Sundowners With the Rhino

Sundowners on safari is always an enjoyable occasion. Add some special rhino guests to the mix and you’ve got the perfect recipe for an incredibly memorable sundowner experience.

Kololo Big 5 Game Reserve

Kololo is a big nature reserve where harmless African wildlife roams free.  Furthermore, Kololo Game Reserve forms part of Welgevonden Game Reserve, an even bigger nature reserve and home to the Big Five and many other African animal species, big and small.

The Fold

The owners of Umndeni Game Lodge are supporters of The Fold, a private hostel for vulnerable and orphaned children. If you would like to visit The Fold during your stay, this can be easily arranged.

Pilansberg National Park

About 2 hours’ drive to the famous Pilansberg National Park, where you have a chance to see the entire Big 5. Pack a picnic and enjoy a full day safari.  Dawyn will drive you there in one of the Umndeni vehicles.

Elephant Back Safaris

You will discover so much about elephants, whilst witnessing these beautiful animals’ intelligence, compassionate nature and sheer delight in interacting with their human companions.

The Waterberg seems to become more and more enchanting with each visit, and it has become a place that I love, and hope that I can continue to visit for many years to come. With that deep affection for a place comes the desire to share the experience with other – kindred spirits – who you just know, will also fall in love with the place. We all know the old cliché about getting the dirt of Africa on your boots, and not being able to get rid of it. Once again you have had a very influential hand in creating memories that will last a lifetime and for that I am truly grateful.
