The Reserve derived its name from the Umpongo River, which features prominently in Xhosa history. Nonkosi, one of the instigators of the widespread Xhosa suicide attempt, lived near the river according to legend. It is also said that some of the relics from her kraal can be found at the Reserve. Set in a malaria free environment, with many facilities including conference rooms, a boardroom, boma and a choice of luxurious accommodation, Mpongo offers its Guests the enjoyment of swimming, a game drive, or for those that want to view game from the comfort of their own vehicles, a self drive game viewing experience.
Wine & Dine
The Huberta restaurant, received its name from South Africa’s traveling hippo. Named the “Wandering Star of South Africa” and honored by the Xhosa as a spirit of an ancient chief, she traveled more than 1600 km South where journalists attempted to photograph her graceful safari through Africa.
Dining at the Huberta restaurant provides guests the opportunity to relive the legend of Huberta by being so close to the hippos at Mpongo Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape. This beautiful restaurant is strategically built just above the Mpongo hippo waterhole, where guests can enjoy an afternoon meal while watching the hippos lingering in the water nearby.
Stylish décor with a touch of Xhosa culture compliments the dining experience and the close, but safe encounter with wild animals. Guests are treated to a blend of African and European cuisine. Diners can select from a wide range of wine cultivars to compliment their delicious meals while gazing at hippos through large open windows overlooking the waterhole. The Huberta restaurant is open to the public for lunch and dinners. Many a tourist has been treated to the best of African game viewing on Sundays when the hippos are fed. Guests at Mpongo can also enjoy a traditional breakfast that reminds of the colonial days. Light pub lunches are served daily from 10h00 to 17h00.
Acclaimed chefs, well-trained waiters, and friendly hosts welcome you to a unique dining experience at this magnificent Eastern Cape game lodge restaurant.
