In 1989, Marco and Marie Schiess had a vision to create a camp in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. The purpose was to develop a place that encapsulated their vision of having a true wilderness experience, an African adventure in a camp that blended into nature and was built out of natural materials. 20 years later, Umlani is one of the most popular lodges in the South African Lowveld as it has remained true to its initial core philosophies. 2010 marks a very special year for Umlani as we celebrate 20 years of providing guests with this unique wilderness experience.
