Manyeleti Private Game Reserve Main Camp
Days 1 - 3
Manyeleti is managed by the Mnisi people, who have lived on this land for many generations. In Shangaan, the language of the most dominant tribe in the area, Manyeleti means “Place of Stars” and in the evenings, when the sun’s light is replaced by that of the moon and countless bright stars, one can understand why. The reserve shares its borders with Kruger National Park, Timbavati Game Reserve, and Sabi Sands Game Reserve, forming part of a huge area of land in which wildlife roams free. A dry area for most of the year, Manyeleti offers spectacular scenes of wildlife as they gather at water holes. Added to game viewing, the reserve also offers insight into the culture and traditions of the Mnisi people.
