“What a great stay in such a pleasent, charming, well equiped private house”

5 minutes from Paul Kruger gate, this charming house is located in a private area, in the middle of the nature. Josie who manages the house is very kind and helpful. The house is fully equiped with anything you will need for a wonderful vacation. In the morning you will have a visit of the Zebras, Kudus and Impalas who lives in the area surrounding the house, and you will be able to feed them with food supplied by the house.
Thank you Josie for a wonderful stay and flexibility.
Sharon and all Ozeri family.

“Shabby chic Kruger stay in the privacy of your own mini-reserve. Seconds from Paul Kruger Gate, next door to hotel.”

We were pleasantly surprised at all of the small details that were provided by the owners. We had the place to ourselves, and animals come right up to the beautiful patio out back. Our kids fed the animals the special food, and had a thrill of a lifetime. The floor plan is wide open, lots of space, and an awesome place to relax. The kitchen is completely equipped and the bedroom suites are beautiful. The location is inside the gated Protea Hotel, so you have the convenience of going to dinner over there while being away from it all at your own exclusive spot. I would definitely go back, and I highly recommend it. The owner is extremely friendly and easy to coordinate with. They built the house on their own, and you can see the fine workmanship everywhere. Don't hesitate to try it--you will not be disappointed.

“Spectacular Base for a Spectacular Trip to Kruger”

When we found Mananga, we thought it was too good to be true. Located just outside the Kruger Gate and with accommodations for our traveling extended family, it seemed a terrific fit. Once we arrived, it was actually even better than we had hoped. We were welcomed with lovely hospitality (local fudges and homemade lemonade) and found a retreat with incredible decor and living space. There were 6 of us (2 kids) and there was more than enough room in the sizable bedrooms and living areas. We self-catered for our 4 days in Kruger and Mananga had everything we needed to help prepare our meals. But the highlight had to be the frequent visits from nearby wildlife, which ranged from kudu and zebra to guinea fowl and vervet monkeys. We were warned of baboons, but did not have any encounters. There is nothing to beat concluding a day in Kruger by sitting on the back porch ten feet away from zebras! The only thing I would note is that Mananga is hidden in the woods and while it is a lovely, modern house, there are plenty of bugs around to accompany the larger wildlife, so be prepared with a plan for bug repellent. On the whole, I couldn't have been more pleased - my family was teary-eyed as we left after 5 nights!! We hope to make it back to Mananga in the future!
