Pumulani means “be at rest” in Ndebele, which has long been the expectation of guests arriving at the door of this Kameeldrift lodge.
The country-style lodge operates on a bed-and-breakfast basis. All rooms are air-conditioned and have a television, coffee- and tea-making facilities, and Wi-Fi access. A new spa facility is also available to guests.
The 38-sleeper venue evolved from the farm Pumulani, which came into the hands of the Louw family 50 years ago. Subsequently, the farm was subdivided, but the original farmhouse remains the focal point of the lodge.
The current Pumulani venue has grown sufficiently to offer guests a choice of four executive en-suite bedrooms, five deluxe en-suite bedrooms and 10 standard en-suite bedrooms.
Perfect for conferences ranging from intimate to 120 delegates, Pumulani boasts seven conference venues, all equipped with multimedia equipment.
Delegate lunches may be enjoyed in the old farmhouse, or alfresco in the sizeable garden or under the lapa.
The farm’s own little chapel, complete with brass bell, seats 180 wedding guests and comes complete with podium and red carpet. A function coordinator is on hand to discuss a choice of wedding packages designed to suit all budgets.
Other on-site facilities include a bar, pool, jacuzzi, restaurant, spa and secure parking. Fishing, golf and game viewing can be found in the vicinity.
