About Umlani Bushcamp
Umlani Bushcamp was founded in 1989 by Marco and Marie-Louise Schiess in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. Umlani was built in the central section of the Timbavati, which is now part of the greater Kruger National Park.
Marco and Marie-Louise's wish was to encapsulate their vision of a true African adventure in the very spirit and experience of the camp itself. They wanted the camp to blend in with nature and as a result, the entire bush camp was built out of natural materials in a traditional African style.
Umlani Bushcamp is managed by Morné & Melissa Hamlyn. He is assisted by Thembi & Joana Mathebula. Thembi has worked at Umlani for over 12 years and has grown in this organisation to this position. She has a reputation for maintaining high standards in a relaxed and friendly way.
Umlani Bushcamp has become renowned for its unique setting, traditional style, outstanding service and award winning meals.
