Makanyane Safari Lodge, South Africa

by admin | 26th March 2012

Makanyane Safari Lodge is one of the best hotels in the world. Located in the private Madikwe Game Reserve, just northwest of JoBurg, Makanyane offers luxury in a surreal natural environment. Elephants mix with guests in the compound, and the reserve benefits from many of the “big fives” ensuring almost certainly to see them all during your safari.

This luxury hotel has 8 suites, that are tented camps and private villas. Each are finely decorated, with private terraces and outdoor bathtubs to soak the atmosphere whilst relaxing. The compound remains very exclusive as the suites are quite apart and it is very easy to feel you are just alone in the middle of the bush.

Guests come here to experience a safari in style. Rangers will show you around, chasing the Big Five, either driving or on foot. The early morning walks are surreal as nature just wakes up. Back at the hotel, enjoy a gastro lunch or dinner, bbq or gastronomic, with traditional meals spiced up with international flavors and South African wine. And if you get tired of this royal treatment after a while, just rest at the Spa and be ready for another adventure.

Makanyane Safari Lodge is truly one of the best hotels in the world. The environment is beautiful, with elephants and other wild game running about. The reserve is not too far from JoBurg which makes it nice after a long plane ride to get there. And the isolation, the food, the wine and service are all exceptional. This is a real experience.
