Manyeleti

A private concession within the Kruger National Park, the Manyeleti Game Reserve was founded in 1963 and shares borders with the Sabi Sand Game Reserve to the south and the Timbavati Game Reserve to the north. Well off the beaten track, the extremely private reserve was given the name Manyeleti (place of the stars) by the local Mnisi people as the full glory of the Southern Constellations is visible on a clear night – perfect for stargazing. Home to the Big Five, the 23 000 hectare private reserve is particularly famous for it’s elephant and lion populations but regular sightings of the other members of game’s elite are relatively common – although it must be noted that game viewing is not as prolific as in Sabi Sands or Timbavati due to considerably less water available to the animals. This has a plus side though as it means visitor numbers are also lower. Home to over 300 bird species, Manyeleti offers both birdwatchers and photography enthusiasts alike plenty of photo opportunities.

Owned and managed by the local Msinsi tribe, Manyeleti Game Reserve consists of only three lodges that make use of the land on a concession basis. All three lodges – Tintswalo Safari Lodge, Honeyguide Khoka Moya and Honeyguide Mantobeni – are beautifully appointed and each offers their own unique brand of stylish exclusivity.
