Makumu Private Game Lodge is an intimate luxury venue in the heart of Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, a prime wilderness almost surrounded by other reserves, including the Kruger National Park. The boundaries are unfenced, and Klaserie has all the quintessential Southern African wildlife present. 

Its star attraction is the elevated location offering outstanding views, even from the boma and swimming pool. Photographers love the low level photographic bunker at one of the waterholes. Makumu guides encourage guests to include walks in their stay during the winter months when conditions are best. Walks are an opportunity to enjoy the full biodiversity of the bushveld, tuned into the sounds, scents and texture of nature.

Note that while the camp can sleep 12, a maximum of 6 will walk with a guide and tracker. The minimum age for walks is 16.

With two professional  Trails Guides on staff, walks at Makumu are tailored to each guest. A short walk during a game drive is an option, or a longer outing can be undertaken as the main activity of the morning. 

To take advantage of the best wildlife viewing and temperature conditions, walks depart at dawn after a light snack, and return in mid-morning to a full breakfast. For keen walkers, a shorter outing in the rich pre-sunset light is also possible.
