A little bit about Manyeleti

Manyeleti Nature Reserve, a spectacular 23,000-hectare wildlife sanctuary, finds itself strategically situated between the distinguished Timbavati and Sabi Sands Nature Reserves, and shares a border with the world-acclaimed Kruger National Park. This unspoiled expanse of African bush offers an authentic and intimate experience of South Africa's diverse wildlife.

Boasting only six safari lodges, Manyeleti offers a welcome sanctuary from the bustling mainstream tourist hubs, providing an optimal fusion of tranquillity and exhilarating wildlife encounters.

Whether you seek a romantic retreat with your partner or a unique family safari holiday, Manyeleti - our mesmerising 'place of the stars' - eagerly awaits your arrival to offer an unforgettable wildlife experience.
