The facilities at Manyane will not meet the expectations of all travellers. If you are hoping for a five star bush experience with some city amenities this one may not be for you. If however you would like to break away from the city and experience a basic bush experience which provides all the basic amenities and then some, Manyane... More

We originally booked two tented accommodation for myself and International business guest. The accommodation looked fine but shared ablutions were not enough as a long weekend had camp ground packed. We changed to chalet but second bedroom in loft was more suited for smaller children.

We stayed in Safari tent No.8. 3 tents away from the shop and opposite ablution block "B". The tents are comfortable with nice linen, spare blankets for colder nights, a mini fridge, kettle and complimentary tea, coffee and sugar sachets. There is also a heater and fan. The ablution blocks are not serviced regularly. On several occasions I found cubicles... More

Not enough showers and toilets for when the park is full. Some of the showers don't even have proper shower head fittings. The toilets don't flush and don't even have toilet seats. I have been to this camp site before and I'm shocked to what state it has become.

We stayed in the chalets. They were very basic but that was okay as we were out all day and only went into them to sleep anyway. The breakfast Chef is excellent!! Very friendly and efficient. We looked forward to breakfast everyday. However, the staff at dinner were just awful and seemed to get worse as the days went by,... More

We stayed at Manyane with a RCI exchange over Easter. This was our third stay at Manyane. During our previous stays we enjoyed the tranquility,close proximity to Pilansberg and the Impala and warthogs visiting in the camp. This time we were kept awake Friday, Saturday and Sunday night with music blaring from the nearby stadium. The festivities carried on until... More

We camped at Manyane over the easter Week End...knowing it would be fully booked..we arrived on Thurs morning to get a good site...luckily choosing one with a view of the bushveld. A happy start. Unfortunately....we did not feel happy at the end of our holiday. For the following reasons: 1.A huge caravan was allowed to set up on the open... More

We have been always happy to stay at Manyane Resort due to the close location to the park. A good base to be at the gate at 5:30 am ;-)) The food is good, the breakfast-man the most friendly cook. Unfortunatly the NOISE POLLUTION at night is NOT ACCEPTABLE. LOUD MUSIC from outside the resort is too loud to revisit... More

We stayed for two nights in the electric safari tents. Tents are clean and tidy, with full sized fridge, kettle and tea coffee and two single beds with linen and your own braai out the front. The tents are reasonably close to amenities and are also quite pleasant even after nearly 40degree days. The resort is very pleasant with pool... More
