“stunning”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Visited Manyane before and was very disappointed, but what an improvement. Ablutions, clean, clean! They are still busy upgrading some of the wash-up area's, but looking good. Toilets clean, basins and showers spotless. Staff always friendly and helpful. And this time there was cleaners all the time. Will definitely re-visit soon!! Food at restaurant tasty. Roads was washed away at placed, but than can be expected due to the rain we had. Rest was great, enough game and relaxation. One thing I did note was the naughty, spoilt brats from SANDTON, playing in the toilets, damaging it for other visitors! Parents should accompany their kids if they can't control themselves!!!And here I blamed the park years before for broken stuff!!!!So sorry....

We are camping at Manyane in the lovely Pilansberg and are so enjoying our stay.

BUT the one thing that has put a dampner on our stay has been the state of the ablutions. From broken toilet seats, to unusable baths because of broken taps, very poor lighting, to running out of toilet paper, not to mention pigeons inside and almost stepping on pigeon poo when getting out the bath!!!-the ablutions could really do with not only some MAINTENANCE but also an UPGRADE.

They could really brighten it up a little and in essence it would really brighten up one's stay.

Wow! First time for my wife and me in South Africa. Manyane is about a 2 hour drive from Joburg airport. The roads are good but be prepared to see lots of road kill (wildebeest, etc). The police force is corrupt and you may find yourself simply stopped and issued with a speeding fine even though there are no speed limits posted - best thing to do is pay up the US$10 and move on otherwise I sense something awkward could happen. The chalets are beautiful equipped and include fitted kitchens and bathrooms. All rooms air conditioned - a must in 90+ F. All come with large back garden and BBQ which we used nearly every day. The definite attraction is that the safari park is 1 min drive away. We bought a 2 week car pass (USD14) and visited every day. A huge park which takes a whole day to drive through / around. The great thing is that you see different things each time you drive around. The resort restaurant is good and varied and the bar shows sport tv all the time - Great if you're a rugby fan too.

Completely different to Europe. Apart from accommodation, everything is extremely cheap - for example a 2lb beefsteak costs around US$3 and a pint of beer around 75c.
We would recommend Manyane.

We visited Pilanesberg National Park mid December and decided to book a 2-sleeper chalet at Manyane Resort. Only two negative points: 1) Upon arrival we were first told that the key was missing, then after a 30 minutes wait, we were told that the key doesn't work properly and therefore we will be put into a 4-sleeper chalet for the first night ( out of two). A bit puzzled about the loss of keys, but quite happy to get a bigger chalet for the same price, and we managed to convince them that there's no point in moving chalets for one night, and they didn't argue with us when we said we wouldn't be paying more for the bigger chalet, as the fault was on their side.
2) The pools looked very unclean, green-ish colour. My partner used the one close to the chalet, I didn't trust the water myself.

Apart from the above two points, we had an amazing experience. The chalet itself was very clean, spacious enough for two (would have been a squeeze for 4), nicely furnished etc. We didn't try out the restaurant apart for buying coffee in the morning, but that coffee was very nice. :) Situated perfectly at the entrance of the National Park. Couldn't have asked for much more and have already recommended the resort to friends and family.

Management does not take care of the facilities as they are not kept in good condition. We were there in December 13, the main swimming pool was green and when referred to the one at the chalets, it was nearly just as bad. The maintenance of the chalets and furniture should also be checked as they are not in mint condition for an international resort. I must add that the personnel are really friendly and assist where they can. There was no complaints about the food it was very good, picked up a few kilos

Room Tip: When looking for a 4 bed sleeper, rather book a 6 sleeper as the second 2 sleeps are in the loft and...

The location is magic but simple things make a big difference, like making sure the taps in the showers work and changing the shower heads as some are missing and most of them are so old and broken it’s like standing in the morning mist. The showers at the pool have no taps or shower head at all, come on look after the place. Also the pool water is very merky and the waiter service very slow and apathetic, shops have no stock cant even get a cold water or a coke. These are such simple things to fix, all down to people and attitude. Generally very poor camp management

Room Tip: the safari tents are magic and adequate with a fridge and kettle cant complain magic views and envir...
