South Africa safari to Kruger and Manyeleti

Manyeleti Game Reserve, Kruger Park

This is the place of stars, a special word in the Shangaan language for a special place called Manyeleti Game Reserve. A special South African destination offering five-star game viewing and luxury safari lodge accommodation, the opportunity to see the Big 5 every day, and forays into Kruger National Park.

This is an authentic wildlife experience, next to the Kruger, with a choice of accommodation in a combination of elite and rustic bush lodges and camps. Many visitors like to stay in private safari lodges offering personalised game drives and five-star meals accommodation and service. 

Manyeleti Game Reserve offers the best of both worlds – an off the beaten track safari where explorers stay in tented bush camps and enjoy bush walks, birding safaris and unstructured forays into the wilderness. Or the opportunity to be spoiled in five-star luxury suites with king size beds, aircon and private splash pools.

In Manyeleti, there are fewer 4×4 vehicles interrupting your unique experience in nature thanks to the limited number of lodges in this 23 750-ha region that shares borders with Kruger, Sabi Sands and Timbavati Game Reserves. 

Safari to Manyeleti Game Reserve

You safari to Manyeleti Game Reserve exceeds all expectations for wildlife viewing and tranquillity in nature. See the buffalo, elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards but also see the cheetahs, the impala, kudus, zebra, giraffe and myriad other creatures making this biodiversity hotspot so famous in conservation circles. 

This less-populated game reserve in South Africa is popular for its exclusive game viewing with fewer vehicles and tourists sharing sightings. Fewer environmental impacts all round with fewer lodges too; in addition, fewer water sources than other game reserves on the boundaries, so fewer predator sightings. 

This astounding ‘secret’ reserve is packed with wildlife and healthy habitats, and it is owned and managed by the local Mnisi tribe who claimed the land that was always theirs. Select lodges and camps in the reserve are part of concessions that use the land as private entities, so tourists who adventure into Manyeleti Game Reserve are in for a private, fulfilling and natural experience. Honeymoon couples can really escape to this reserve and know that they will be entirely alone.
