Honeyguide Tented Camps

Elephant visiting Khoka Moya

Manyeleti tranquillity

Honeyguide offers two classic luxury tented camps in the 23,000 hectare Manyeleti. Surrounded by Kruger, Sabi Sand and the Timbavati, Manyeleti has only three operators on this large tract of land. The safari experience is more peaceful than at more developed reserves.

Less-intensive lodge activity

Game sightings including the big five are good although they can be less frequent than elsewhere as the number of vehicles out looking is low.

Unhurried sightings

Unhurried sightings allow for excellent photographic opportunities. The landscape provides good views over the Mohwareng Hills.

Walking at Honeyguide Tented Camp

Walking opportunities

Walking in the Manyeleti is particularly good given its low density of development. Proximity to the water-rich Sabi Sand Reserve provides high concentrations of game around two rivers. Travel on foot through deep bush, accompanied by an experienced armed ranger.

Communal dining

Dining is a communal affair. Food is usually served outdoors at a long table, with log fires and torches creating a bush feel. Home-made dishes use local produce and are plentiful and well presented.
