Is the Makanyi Private Game Lodge for Me?

An intimate eight-suite lodge located in a private, pristine area of the Timbavati which adjoins the world-famous Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Situated overlooking a permanent water hole, teeming with game, guest suites are a very generous 140sqm/1500sqft with two suites also having a plunge pool. One of the suites is two-bedroomed, ideal for couples or a small family (children over 14 please).

As we are one of two commercial lodge in the area, traversing 8,000 hectares and there is no rushing around on game drives or time limits on sightings, and this is what really sets Makanyi apart.

Add in the outstanding hospitality, luxurious accommodation and fabulous cuisine and it’s easy to see why Makanyi is perfect for that private, exclusive safari.
