Makanyi Private Game Lodge


An impeccable lodge overlooking a dam

Driven by an incredibly passionate team, Makanyi aims to leave an indelible impression on you through a wonder-filled experience. With a strong emphasis on conservation and community as well as impeccable service, Makanyi impresses on a variety of levels. From every aspect of your stay - from your suite, to your food and drinks and your game drives, expect quality.
Makanyi has a main lodge and seven suites. The main lodge has a deck with stunning views of the dam, allowing you to unwind and watch the amazing wildlife. In summer, spend time around the pool with a refreshing cocktail. And in winter, keep warm round the roaring fire. 
Each of Makanyi’s seven luxury suites overlooks the magnificent dam and comes with an extra large bed, a relaxing sitting area with its own fireplace, a beautiful bathroom with a spacious shower and separate bathtub, a private deck with loungers and an outdoor shower. Two of the seven rooms are special lux pool suites. As they are located furthest from the main lodge they offer more privacy, as well as a romantic four-poster bed and a wonderful private plunge pool on the deck – ideal for a soak with a glass of champagne, under a blanket of stars.
Game drives, bush walks, guided star-gazing, spa, gym and fishing in the dam in the company of curious hippos are just some of Makanyi’s activities. By arrangement, they can book a professional wildlife photographer to spend the day with you and show you the ropes. Similarly, they offer Art Safaris with a local artist so visiting artists can enhance their skills in a new setting.
