This is a great stop-over. The rooms were clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. Will definitely re-visit when I'm in the area again. A great location point to explore the Kruger National Park.

Off the beaten path into Africa. ALL the services and accommodations were wonderful. It has an authentic Bush Camp feel that is mixed Game Lodge. The place is outside the typical overrun tourist destination. We really enjoyed the quiet and peaceful environment. We are so glad to find an original type of place. Once in a lifetime experience.

Really nice lodge! Very quaint and relaxing! Not too fancy, but quite romantic and simple. Not a lot of guests at one time, so it has a very private feel! Really wonderful! We stayed as a family. It was great and they accommodated us very well! I'd go back for my anniversary next time.

Be prepared for a very rustic adventure if you've booked the Shalati Lodge. For the price that we've paid, it offers exactly what it promises - a fuss-free place to stay in to view the amazingly beautiful animals and birds of the Kruger and Great Kruger National Parks (namely Manyeleti Game Reserve). Other lodges in the Manyeleti Reserve charge more... More

This very basic place is in the middle of the bush, next door to the Manyeleti private game reserve, and linked to the local community. The negatives, as listed in earlier reviews: the chalets are very small (almost completely filled by a double bed), the water can smell terrible. Bring your own. The positives: there's a nice dog. But more... More

I was on a photography tour with G Adventures in May, 2014 and part of this tour was a 3 night stay at this lodge. We arrived to the lodge just before dinner time and the two nice ladies who greeted us at the lodge were there every morning and every evening to greet us from the car (don't know... More

I stayed at the Shalati lodge for 2 nights, which was really nice. The huts are quite small, but cosy. The camp has a nice lapa where you can enjoy the fire with other guests. The food was good. The staff is friendly and professional.

We stayed here after ending a group tour here. We stayed an extra day and did a full day game drive with Hanlize. She was an excellent guide in Manyeleti Game Reserve. Paul and Mariana are wonderful hosts. They are all so kind and welcoming. Lindy made sure we were comfortable and the food is homemade, traditional South African and... More

End of March 2014 : we booked two nights but stayed four! 2 Reasons : Shalati is located at the very entrance of Manyeleti Park and the presence of Mariana, the more than kind manager of Shalati. The rather basic infrastructure (though sufficient) was more than compensated by her kindness, Always there to help, to give information or just for... More

It is basic and a little adventuruous but everything you need is there, very good beds, hot water, good food... Most of all Mariana and her assistant managers take really good care of you. Mariana is the most warm person I ever met. The lodge is near the entrance of Manyeleti Park, wich is connected with Krugerpark, but the entrance... More
