About Mpongo Private Game Reserve

Mpongo Private Game Reserve is only 35 km from the popular coastal city of East London and offers visitors a one-of-a-kind experience of game viewing and true South African hospitality.

Mpongo’s River Lodge and Chalets provide game lodge accommodation in the heart of the reserve. The lodge offers luxurious bedrooms and each Chalet offers two bedrooms with spectacular views of the Umpongo River. Mpongo’s Huberta Lodge is located at the day centre and offers true Eastern Cape hospitality in its six African colonial-styled en-suite bedrooms.

Mpongo Private Game Reserve offers several services to ensure a truly remarkable and comfortable stay. These include transport and shuttle services, room service and a swimming pool. The beautiful Huberta Restaurant is strategically built just above the hippo waterhole where guests can enjoy an afternoon meal while watching the hippos lingering in the water nearby.

Visitors to Mpongo Private Game Reserve can spend a day at one of the many beautiful white sandy beaches of the East Coast. The unspoiled coastline is a haven for tourists and offers several recreational activities. Few reserves offer the variety of African game that can be viewed from open vehicles at Mpongo Private Game Reserve.

Come close to the wild through a two to three hour open-vehicle drive under the guidance of an experienced game guide. Another option is our self-drive game viewing option where you can view the game from the comfort of your own vehicle.

Mpongo Private Game Reserve is a proud member of the Premier Hotels & Resorts family.

                      I got the exact same experience as I saw online be it the weather at night had its own ideas. I was helped even thought the room I asked for lacked some minor detail but I will go back! Friendly staff all around.

                      We were satisfied with our stay and would revisit. We were happy with the standard of accommodation and would suggest a stay here to others.

                      Basic but comfortable rooms. Great safari experience, particularly being able to touch and hold lion cubs and to see a baby hippo.
