A WARM WELCOME TO MAKANYI

Here at Makanyi we are dedicated to creating the most memorable tailor-made guest experience possible whilst respecting our natural environment and its incredible inhabitants. As privileged custodians of this inspiring land, we are thrilled to share our knowledge and constant sense of wonder with you.

Located on the western edge of the Kruger National Park, an area that spans over 2.4 million hectares, the Timbavati Game Reserve is truly exceptional in that it is easily accessible from main air and road access routes and yet remains wild and unspoilt with fewer lodges and private homes than can be counted on one hand. It is this unique situation that allows our guests the luxury of exploring this arresting habitat uninhibited by other tourist vehicles in total privacy and flexibility. This intimate and exclusive setting offers a truly authentic safari experience. 

A stay at family owned Makanyi begins and ends with our guest’s happiness and, to this end, authenticity, attention to detail and total flexibility are paramount to every stay with us.

Makanyi is so much more than a safari lodge. We want you to love this place as much as we do, to take it to your heart and embrace a fuller understanding of nature and a deeper respect for animals – for this is their home.   We would love for you to leave with not just an amazing photo album of all the wonderful sightings you will have had, but especially with something in your heart that you will carry inside you forever.
