Situated at the western edge of the Kruger National Park - the 23,000-hectare Manyeleti Game Reserve is the ideal location if you’re looking to escape the crowds at the Kruger National Park.

If you’re still unconvinced, here are 15 reasons why you should visit the Manyeleti Game Reserve. However, a South African safari holiday should be on top of your bucket list.
