It is a small intimate safari lodge offering unparalleled cuisine and quintessential luxury. The Manyeleti abounds with game, including the Big Five, and also boasts spectacular bird life. The reserve is unique for its minimal vehicle density, so offering our guests a truly exclusive safari experience on both game drives and bush walks in approximately 23 000 hectares of pristine wilderness.


Set upon the banks of Nwaswitsontso seasonal river bed amongst an ancient grove of Sycamore fig trees and riverine vegetation, guests are accommodated in 6 luxury Explorer Suites. The lodge has raised wooden walk-ways throughout. All Suites have an intimate plunge pool, full en-suite facilities, an indoor/outdoor shower which leads off from the bathroom out onto the deck, extra length double beds, bar facility, air-conditioners, fireplaces, overhead fans and mosquito nets. The décor of each suite is inspired by the ambience of the great 19th century explorers of Africa.

The lodge has a small but exclusive library of rare books as well as a wine cellar from which wine can be chosen to enjoy with alfresco dining on the lodge deck, in the exquisite setting of the formal dining area, in the wine cellar or even under the stars in the African bush.

The Vital Source Spa is privately situated at the lodge and has internationally trained therapists awaiting guests, ready to ensure removal of the last vestiges of city stress from body and mind. The Spa specializes in hands-on treatment for both men and women utilizing Elemis and Africology Products to stimulate all the senses.
