    Umkumbe Safari Lodge is located in a low risk malaria area. You are advised to consult with a medical doctor in your home country for the correct medical advice.

    Hi - Umkumbe does have wifi, however they are having regular outages due to their remoteness. My advice is to assume that the Lodge does not have wifi until further notice.
