our values

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.

For us, this goes way beyond being a business; it is an opportunity to share our experiences and sense of wonder. We believe in bringing tourism together with conservation and community to create awareness and something beautiful, unique and sustainable that we can preserve for the generations to come. As well as caring for you and ensuring your stay is truly spectacular, we dedicate our time and resources to the natural environment and its inhabitants, and particularly to the ongoing fight against rhino poaching in the Timbavati.

We are committed to being responsible custodians of this inspiring land, so we sincerely hope you will share our vision and values – because this is not merely a holiday destination, it’s a way to expand your horizons and help our planet.
