Sleeping in a tent, hearing the leopard rubbing on the side of it, or waking up with a big elephnat just outside the tent, is priceless. For all the rest you can use MasterCard!!!
Nice location, nice staff!

Just returned from a fanatic four days at Honeyguide. We had never been on a safari before and had no idea what to expect. We got to see so many animals up close and our guide, Anton, and tracker, Phillip, were excellent - they were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the animals and environment, being able to spot leopards/lions etc from tracks and slight movements in the grass. The tent was very comfortable and we had a great view of the waterhole - we slept through elephants and lions visiting at night! The food was very good and varied, and all the staff did everything to make our stay really memorable. It is a holiday I will never forget.

Room tip: We were in tent 4 and it had a great view of the water hole.

We had a fabulous time here in March 2014. The accommodation was very safe and comfortable, the service first class and the food absolutely delicious. Our guide Anton, took us amazing game drives early in the morning and late in the afternoon each day. We saw lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, many elephants, countless beautiful birds, wilderbeast. jackals, rhinoceros and much more. There is a small pool where you can relax during the day or you can go on a bush walk with a guide if you desire. Each night after dinner you are escorted to your tent for your own safety as this park is right next door to Kruger National Park and the animals roam freely between these two game parks.
Stay at least three nights for a full South African experience.

We recently visited Mantobeni camp in December 2013 and all I can say is WOW WOW WOW. Being originally from South Africa but never experiencing a Safari I didn't know what to expect but I was blown away. To begin the tents a wonderful mix of luxury and wilderness with their open style design allowing us to not only hear the animals but often see elephants or giraffes wondering past in the open in front of us. Anton and Philip were our guide and tracker and we cannot give them high enough praise. Anton was just fantastic, knowledgable, friendly and with a great sense of humour. The pride he takes in his work and the importance he feels in providing the best possible experience for his guests are so very evident. Everyone at the camp was lovely, friendly and did all they can to ensure their guests have a remarkable time. They even surprised us with a romantic dinner inside our tent as we were the only two people on the camp.

Finally the animals, we were so very fortunate that we saw it all. From 3 sleeping very full lions on our very first game drive, to the elusive and very rare black rhino, to a leopard running up a tree, to seeing the big 5 in one drive, to tracking rhino on foot and finally to a small family of Cheetahs feeding on a kill this experience was one we will never forget. We cannot recommend Honeyguides high enough to anyone lucky enough to visit Manyeleti game park.
