I had a great hunt, the best in the Eastern Cape so far.


Thank you for the wonderful time in South Africa. There were memorable moments and hunting experiences


Can I say on behalf of all of us what a fantastic trip you and your team put on for us. Amazing accommodation and superb food. The shooting was brilliant and everybody had a great time.


Many thanks for a really good time. Gail and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and I particularly enjoyed the shooting. We had super food, great company and excellent service.

Bill and Gail

The quality of service from ALL employees’ right through the ranks was nothing short of exceptional. The meals were better than I’ve experienced in some of London’s most popular restaurants.
Our evenings were something I’ll never forget spent by the beautiful fireside with a glass of wine while sharing experiences from that particular day with staff and guests alike.
The accommodation was more than I ever expected with plenty of room to relax and unwind after a long day spent on foot walking through the hills and open plains. Every step of the way you truly made this trip an experience of a life time!

In Umlilo is alles ok. Jacht en kooksel baie baie goed en ik kom zeker terug voor jacht.
Veele dank.

I couldn’t have asked for a better time. The food and hospitality were first class, as was the hunting. I really enjoyed myself.
I felt at ease from the first day and the atmosphere was relaxed but professional from the start. 

Phil Tinson

Had an absolutely fantastic time yet again I really cannot think of any way to improve the way you run the lodge, Food is worth a special mention, fantastic!
See you in 2016

I have just returned home from my 5th hunting trip to Umlilo Safaris in South Africa's Eastern Cape and once again they surpassed my expectations, the camp infrastructure has been significantly updated but the original hunting ethos has been maintained, tall stories around the campfire over a beer or ten followed by belt busting food makes for a wonderful ending to what is always a busy day in the bush, the underlying professionalism is tempered by genuine friendship and I have no hesitation in recommending Umlilo to any Hunter who appreciates what we call in the UK "The Real Deal"

Mike Glennie

We can not speak highly enough about our experiences in Africa with Umlilo Safaris particularly the way we were made to feel welcome and part of the family. Both of our visits have exceeded our expectations in every aspect. If you choose to hunt with Umlilo be prepared to want to return time and time again.

David and Julie Tart

Thanks to Umlilo Safaris for some memorable days with good food, good company and very good hunting. The whole family shot some very nice trophies in very different terrains in very different conditions.
