Staying in the Manyeleti Game Reserve is about enjoying safaris and exploring South Africa’s wild nature. It allows you to spot big game in a natural environment, the dream of so many travelers. Many of the activities in this private game reserve are included in the rates. Game drives are interpretive drives in the bush in specially adapted four-wheel drive vehicles, with the purpose of finding wildlife in a natural habitat.
Besides the ranger normally a “tracker” joins the ranger, who is seated on the front of the safari vehicle in a small seat and scans the environment for game. These are all very passionate people, who have a special ability to teach you about nature. Just as with a game drive you will go out with a ranger/guide on a game walk. On foot you get a completely different experience: it is sometimes even possible to approach wildlife to a very short distance. It indeed is a very thrilling experience observing wildlife without the protection of a car.
Manyeleti Game reserve offers not only viewing of famous Big 5, but also different types of birds. Africa's highest level of endemism in the most accessible setting: 185 bird species can be seen easily and will be an unforgettable wildlife experience.
