Departing from the OR Tambo Airport by 06:30 you will be met by our guide who will transfer you to the Manyeleti Private game reserve.

On arrival at Main Camp, you will get a brief camp orientation and then checked into your room. There is time to freshen up and enjoy a light snack before you set off on a sunset safari drive in the Manyeleti Reserve. Safari drives in the Manyeleti will be accompanied by a ranger or guide who have a comprehensive knowledge of all flora and fauna found in Manyeleti.

They are all very passionate people who have a special ability to teach you about nature.

You arrive back at the camp as the sun is almost completely gone and you can sip on a refreshing drink or coffee at the camp dining area before sitting down to dinner. Dinner is served.

After dinner spend sometime around the fire sharing stories of the day before retiring to your room for a good night’s rest.

DAILY PROGRAM

Spend the day doing a morning and afternoon safari drive in the Manyeleti Game Reserve. Manyeleti means “Place of the stars”. 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-hectare private game reserve has unfenced borders directly with the vast Kruger National Park, as well as the famous Sabi Sands.

You will get a wakeup call from your guide and make your way down to the dining area for tea and coffee which will be served with biscuits before departing on your morning adventure.

You guide will explain the morning's events before departing on an open game viewing vehicle through the Manyeleti Game Reserve. You will have the opportunity to spot the Big 5 animals like Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant, and Buffalo, as well as an array of antelope and other wildlife animals that can be found in the Reserve. Arriving back at the camp after the safari drive, you are invited to relax and enjoy brunch at your own leisure. After brunch, there is time to walk around the camp or have a swim (depending upon the season of course). Make good use of this time to catch up on some sleep or simply enjoy the absolute tranquillity of the bush from the comfort of your chalet. Hopefully feeling totally relaxed and well rested, you make your way to the restaurant area for a light lunch including sandwiches and snacks, fruit juices and ice cold drinks.

You guide meets you in the restaurant area and you depart on an afternoon/sunset safari drive in the Manyeleti Game Reserve. You make your way back to the camp after an exhilarating drive where dinner will be waiting for you. Dinner is served. After dinner enjoy an early night’s rest or stargaze from the deck in front of your air-conditioned chalet room.

DEPARTURE DAY

Today your safari trip comes to an end. However, there is still an exciting morning safari game drive planned. You will get a wakeup call from your guide and make your way down to the dining area for tea and coffee which will be served with biscuits before departing on your morning adventure. You will have the opportunity to spot animals that have eluded you thus far. Arriving back at the camp after the safari drive, you enjoy breakfast then check-out from your rooms.

After checking out of your room, you will be transferred to the Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport.
