We visited Pilanesberg National Park mid December and decided to book a 2-sleeper chalet at Manyane Resort. Only two negative points: 1) Upon arrival we were first told that the key was missing, then after a 30 minutes wait, we were told that the key doesn't work properly and therefore we will be put into a 4-sleeper chalet for the first night ( out of two). A bit puzzled about the loss of keys, but quite happy to get a bigger chalet for the same price, and we managed to convince them that there's no point in moving chalets for one night, and they didn't argue with us when we said we wouldn't be paying more for the bigger chalet, as the fault was on their side.
2) The pools looked very unclean, green-ish colour. My partner used the one close to the chalet, I didn't trust the water myself.
Apart from the above two points, we had an amazing experience. The chalet itself was very clean, spacious enough for two (would have been a squeeze for 4), nicely furnished etc. We didn't try out the restaurant apart for buying coffee in the morning, but that coffee was very nice. :) Situated perfectly at the entrance of the National Park. Couldn't have asked for much more and have already recommended the resort to friends and family.
