  • 12 Large Spacious Tents
  • Manyeleti Game Reserve
  • True african big five safari
  • Excellently rated by guests

Honeyguide Mantobeni is a tented safari camp located in the Manyeleti Game Reserve which is adjacent to the Kruger National Park. Experience the African bush and its diverse wildlife during the game drives in open-air vehicles where you can spot the Big 5 and guided walks, all supervised by qualified and experienced guides and trackers.

Mantobeni Camp is designed to reflect Hemingway’s Africa. There are 15 tents which are nestled in a Tamboti grove overlooking a dry river bed. The reception area comprises a large sitting area, an outdoor area with a splash pool and sun loungers, a bar and an extensive climate-controlled wine cellar.

Game visiting the nearby watering hole can be seen from the swimming pool deck which adjoins the reception area.

Mantobeni Camp is more of a remote bush camp, set in a grove of tamboti trees. Its free-standing bedroom tents are set on wooden platforms, with roll-up walls and a run-around terrace, making for a very “up and close-to-nature” feel.

Food at the camp is a highlight, and is a communal affair, usually served outdoors at a long table, with log fires and torches to create a really authentic bush feel. Simple homemade dishes, using predominantly local produce, are plentiful and exquisitely presented.

Activities

Expert game rangers will take guests on guided bush walks or game drives in 4×4 game viewing vehicles and they can expect to see the famous Big five, lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino as well as other smaller creatures and many antelope species. As the heat of the African day heightens, and after a game drive of approximately 3 hours, guests leave the bush and return to camp for mid-morning brunch. Afternoons can be spent relaxing by the pool or viewing a passing game from the hide at the nearby waterhole. As sunset approaches, guests will venture into the African bush again for an evening’s game viewing before being treated to a gourmet dinner and campfire stories back at camp. Evening game drives last about 4 hours, and include leisurely sundowners. Honeyguide boasts awe-inspiring views, particularly at sunset.
Group tours are available to the nearby village of Welverdiend, where guests will learn about the relationship between traditional and contemporary living.
