Makanyi Lodge

Marvelous Makanyi Lodge

Here at Makanyi Lodge, an authentic big 5 wildlife experience awaits you in the heart of the Timbavati. With their amazing SADC resident specials, you can experience the majestic African bush with family, a group of friends, or just the two of you looking for that extra privacy, flexibility, and more of a home away from home feel.


The Experience

Experience their private Marula Villa and choose between the catered or self-catered option. Accommodating a maximum of 4 guests, the Villa is separate from the main lodge and is nestled under a canopy of Marula Trees. Featuring 2 bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom, an open plan dining area, and a lounge that opens onto a spacious wooden deck, along with a private plunge pool and boma. On the deck, you can relax and unwind with a gin and tonic after an exhilarating day on safari with your private guide and then dine under the stars or feel the warmth of an African sunset by the fire.
