As a lodge photographer and videographer with a passion for capturing the essence of safari destinations, my journey to Umkumbe Bush Lodge was nothing short of special. Here, I had the privilege of showcasing this luxurious tented lodge, in the heart of the wild, where extraordinary game-viewing experiences are an everyday reality.
Canvas of Luxury in the Sabi Sand
This lodge embodies the essence of authentic safaris, offering guests the unique opportunity to experience the Sabi Sand Reserve under canvas, while still enjoying the comforts of a luxury retreat. It’s a harmonious blend of elegance and adventure, a space where the line between indoor and outdoor living is beautifully blurred.
The Artistry of Luxury Tents
As a lodge photographer, one of the first things that struck me was the luxury tents themselves. These are not your ordinary canvas tents; they are sanctuaries of comfort and style. With tasteful decor, plush bedding, and en-suite bathrooms, they redefine the concept of camping.
Game Viewing at its Finest
Located in the world-renowned Sabi Sand Reserve, this lodge offers a front-row seat to the magic of the wild. The Sabi Sand is famous for its thriving wildlife, including the Big Five, and Umkumbe ensures you don’t miss a moment.
Through photography and video, I aimed to showcase Umkumbe’s unique character – the moments under the African sky, the immersive bushwalks guided by experienced rangers, and the tranquil moments spent on private decks watching wildlife traverse the landscape.
