I was fortunate to be able to return and spend the weekend in the honeymoon suite. I had previously experienced some of the hospitality of the Manor House whilst working with the Rhino Revolution - Volunteers Units that is based on the same reserve. This in itself was a fantastic experience; and would encourage guests at Manor House to ask... More

We spent 2 nights here last year and were upgraded to the honeymoon suite which is incredible. All the staff were so helpful and the food was delicious we booked several trips through the hotel to local attractions which was incredibly easy. The outlook onto the waterhole from the terrace is stunning and got to see Jackals, monkeys, warthogs, fighting... More

Excellent food and hospitality. Enjoyed the game drives with the excellent game ranger,Gareth. The garden room can get very stuffy because there are no windows where you sleep. Everything is so well attended to and the view from the deck is superb. Would have liked to dine privately and not as a group with the other guests. We had a... More

We loved it. It was our second time staying there and it was as great as the first time. Love the location, the room and the little pig. Too cute! All the staff were very friendly and accommodation very comfortable. Will definitely stay again. The only minor set back (not a major issue) was the food. We had venison which... More

What a fantastic gem we found in the bush. Staff were brilliant, nothing was ever too much trouble right from the reception we received to the personal goodbye. The game drives were interactive and exciting providing us an up close experience with some beautiful cheetah. Meals were delicious and the hosts extremely gracious.
