Umlani's philosophy of simplistic luxury and 'getting back to nature' is enhanced by the romance of operating without electricity, so each hut and the entire camp is lit by candlelight and oil lamps, providing a warm and romantic atmosphere.
Early morning and evening game drives are in open four wheel drive vehicles accompanied by experienced rangers and trackers.
A traversing area of more than 10 000 hectares with over 40 mammal and 350 bird species, makes for an exceptional wildlife experience.
Umlani makes the whole event personalised and specialises in escorted walks into this unspoiled wilderness. Umlani, meaning Place of Rest, was established in 1990 by Marco and Marie-Louise Schiess, in the central section of the Timbavati Nature Reserve, which is part of the greater Kruger National Park.
The aim of Umlani is to offer our guests a true African adventure and long lasting memories.
