Ufumene Game Lodge offers Game Lodge accommodation on a private game ranch in the Eastern Cape, straddling both sides of a valley behind the Olifantskop Mountain, 120km from Port Elizabeth. A jewel in the Eastern Cape; rest and relax at Ufumenes boutique lodge and enjoy nature, wildlife and good company.

Lodge life mostly happens on the large covered veranda furnished with comfortable sofas, chairs tables, and a braai and dining area.  The views are stunning and a refreshing swim in the pool is only a few steps away.  On cold days, life moves indoors to the open plan hall with a kitchen, dining room and lounge with an open fireplace.

Besides a hearty braai, the cuisine includes delicious recipes from Austria, France, Spain, Italy, Lebanon, India, Singapore and Thailand.

Game Drives and Hikes:
Ufumene measures 2400 hectares (6000 acres). It straddles both sides of a valley in the mountains that separate the wet coastal plains of the Eastern Cape from the arid Karoo. Its flood plains are 300 m above sea level, the high plateaus rise to 500 m. It features 5 different biomes to explore, succulent karoo, broken thorn veld, subtropical savanna, rhino bush and valley thicket.

The Bushman’s River winds through the farm. It flows after big rains, but its pools are kept full with water seeping down from the hills. Along its banks it sustains a mature forest of acacia, bush willow, jacket plum and paperbark trees. You will find most indigenous species of animals on the ranch with the exception of dangerous game. Ufumene carries 16 species of antelope, giraffe, zebra and ostrich, all sorts of small animals and wonderful wild birds.

Visits to Addo National Park and Schotia Safaris:
Both are within a 1 hour drive from Ufumene. Both have the Big 5 animals and many other game animals.
