Create memories of a lifetime in Timbavati

Makanyi Private Game Lodge is a perfect haven where you will find a superbly situated deck with stunning views of the dam, allowing you to unwind and watch amazing wildlife scenes unfold before your eyes. It is a lovely area to either relax on your own and take in the beauty of your surroundings or to socialise with others and share stories about your sightings.

Venture out on game drives where you will encounter the Big 5 and perhaps even the elusive African wild dog. Get closer to the earth on an adventurous bush walk, conducted by knowledgeable guides and trackers. Fish in the nearby rivers or head back to the hotel for a relaxing spa treatment. Later, gaze up at the stars as they shine bright, unpolluted by artificial light.

The sun loungers around the pool are perfect for sunbathing, reading or dozing off, while the cosy loft serves as a quiet reading area or lounge to enjoy TV or a movie. In the main area, large, comfortable sofas by the roaring fireplace keep you warm on a chilly evening. And on a warm summer’s night? Nothing beats sitting on the deck by the pool, sipping a refreshing cocktail to the sounds of lions roaring not far away. Alternatively, mingle with other guests at the bar where the barman is ready to prepare you your favourite drink, sharing stories of your day’s sightings.
