Makumu is a little paradise on earth and the whole Makumu team made our stay and our wedding unforgettable. Makumu is located in the beautiful Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and even if you just sit on your balcony you can see the elephants crossing the river. In the night the whole lodge is lighted just with candles, so you can see the stars while the lions roar in the bush. It is an amazing memory. The whole team and the owners, Stefan and Karin, are so friendly in a heartfelt way that, after four days we didn't want to leave. The Game Drives with the tracker Richard and the rangers Matt and Morné were fantastic. All of them had such a profound knowledge that you can learn something new on each Game Drive. During our stay we were lucky to see lions, leopards, giraffes and elephants as well as a pack of wild dogs directly at the lodge. The food was delicious and served either at the floating boma or under a tree in the bush. But besides all these wonderful experiences we would like to thank the whole Makumu team, especially Melissa and Morné that you made our wedding in the bush to such an unforgettable memory. It was perfect and we never imagined in our dreams that we can have such a romantic and wonderful wedding. The place you had chosen for the ceremony was overwhelming. The traditional song and dance of the Makumu team was awesome. We even had a wedding cake in the bush - amazing. Thank you for the wonderful time. We surely will see you again soon. Katja & Clemens
