You can also see other amazing animals in the vast park, like lions, zebras, leopards, wild dogs, buffalos, rhinos, elephants and more on a regular basis. For example, rhinos and elephants can be spotted often to sit in the muddy pans. Specials in this park include the serval and the side-striped jackal, which can not be seen often elsewhere, and the cheetahs. There are also over 300 bird species present in the area, so you can get the chance to see some colourful and peculiar birds in the sky.

Fantastic Wildlife Photography Opportunities

You can take a photographic safari with a guide, in order to have the chance to take some great close up of the wild animals in the area. The guides can show you the basics of wildlife photography.

The Mnisi tribe claimed this land, as they have been around the area for many generations. There are three lodges in the reserve, who are owned by this tribe when you can spend your nights.

Manyeleti (place of the stars) definitely offers you except the most amazing wildlife safari tours. But it also offer you great stargazing moments in clear night skies, accompanied by the sounds of the wild animals in the reserve.
