Bordering the Kruger National Park and situated between the Timbavati and the Sabi Sand Reserves, lies an expanse of pristine wilderness; in prime Big Five country in the beautiful and unexploited 23,000 hectare Manyeleti Game reserve.

The camp offers breathtaking wildlife experiences, including the Big Five, superb cuisine and service excellence. Featuring 15 tents, each furnished with a king size bed (or two twin beds), and an en suite bathroom with a sunken bath, double shower, his and hers basins, and a separate toilet.

The camp also boasts a large sitting area, an outdoor area with a splash pool and sun loungers, a bar area, and an extensive climate controlled wine cellar. Wildlife drinking at nearby watering hole can be seen from the swimming pool deck which adjoins the reception area.

Guests are taken on game drives in open game viewing vehicles in the early morning and late afternoon/evening. Late afternoon and evening drives include sunset drinks, views over the Mohwareng Hills, and glimpses of nocturnal creatures. Larger game frequently sighted in the reserve includes elephant, rhino, lion and hippo. In between meals and drives, watch the game and birdlife pass by while relaxing by the pool or take a walking safari through the deep bush, accompanied by an experienced, armed ranger; it can be hot work, but it’s very exciting – seeing the animals from a vehicle just doesn’t seem to compare. Group tours are available to the nearby village of Welverdiend, where guests will learn about the relationship between traditional and contemporary living.
