When planning a stay at Maninghi Lodge, keep the following information handy:
Buying Food
Maninghi is 45km's from Hoedspruit, which has a well-stocked Spar, Pick-n-Pay and bottle store. From here you will be able to buy general provisions and groceries, should you not have brought with you. Maninghi has several freezers and fridges, to keep your food and drinks fresh and cold. Note that Hoedspruit is not en-route to Maninghi, you'll pass through several towns if travelling from Gauteng that supplies could be provisioned from. The two best towns for this would be Lydenberg, or Tzaneen (depending on your route).
Refreshments are for sale at Maninghi Lodge, and we can stock to any requirement beforehand.
