Situated in the Zululand region of South Africa, this multiple award-winning, Big 5 family-run safari lodge set within an Endangered Species Protected Area in the magnificent 22 000 hectare Manyoni Private Game Reserve.

The Safari Lodge is intimate and exclusive, with only 8 chalets thus able to guarantee personalised service in addition to the most breathtaking views in Zululand from the meandering Msunduze River below to the distant Lebombo Mountains, where Africa’s Great Rift Valley begins.

About the Reserve

Important

On your 3 – 3,5 hour long game drives, we take you through well stocked and unspoilt bush veld with endless rivers winding through indigenous forest, a birders paradise. Our guided walking safaris offer an intimate encounter with the African bush veld and wildlife, taking you to places beyond the reach of vehicles.

Join our mid day waterhole lookout activity to watch an array of animals coming down to drink from our unique waterhole setting.

It is advisable to bring warm clothes along for the drive even in the hot summer months. Your game ranger will provide ponchos and warm blankets and has a bird book and binoculars. Remember to bring your camera and video camera with you.

Itinerary

Enjoy a full day relaxing in this amazing wilderness including a morning and evening game drive, whilst a leisurely lunch and sparkling pool await in the middle of the day.
One of the true joys of Zululand is the freedom to do nothing at all in absolute luxury, but for those who choose to venture beyond the comfort of the Lodge, a world of new experiences awaits… Game Drives, Nature Walks, Birdwatching, Star Gazing, Rock Art, Rock Formations & Features, Fauna & Flora and Spa Treatments are just some of the options.

Awake to the sounds of the bush and enjoy an early breakfast before departing on another exciting 3 hour game drive as the bush awakens to a new day. You depart the lodge late morning and arrive back at the Welcome Lounge around midday, to meet up with your own vehicle or driver for your onward journey.
