We were at this camp September 2011 It was part of a 14 day safari booked by On Track Safaris. Our room was the last one furthest away from the main lodge. We had all sorts of game passing our room. The game drives and guide were very good we spent all one night 5 hours with a leopard wich had a kill but lost on the way up a tree.Some people came to this lodge to see the big 5 and tick the book. This is not this lodge is about. Spending time with one animal gave us a better experance. We would recommend Umkumbe to other travers.
