Manyeleti Game Reserve bordering Kruger National Park is situated away from the mainstream tourist areas where guests can experience the tranquility of a South African safari in absolute seclusion. Accommodation is provided in luxurious thatched chalets and tented safari camps that successfully capture the memory of a bygone era, filled with adventure and romance.
Manyeleti means “Place of the stars” in the local language. It truly is a unique safari destination well off the beaten path. You can be certain not to encounter big tour groups travelling around in busses, but rather expect a pristine bush experience in one of the world’s most beautiful places. This 23,000 hectate private game reserve borders directly to the vast Kurger National Park, as well as the famous Sabi Sands and Timbavati Game Reserves. It is is situated on the eastern side of Kruger NP, perched between the Sabi Sands and Timbavati. As such, you can be absolutely sure to only experience the best game viewing possible. As there are no fences between the national park and the private game reserves, wildlife is able to roam freely. Manyeleti is prime “Big Five” territory, offering exceptional gooed possibilities for viewing the elusive leopard. Other Big Five animals in the Manyeleti Game Reserve (lion, rhino, buffalo and elephant) are also often spotted on a very regular basis. Furthermore, with more than 300 bird species present in the area, Manyeleti makes a great safari destination for wildlife enthusiasts, photographers and bird watchers alike.
