Peace and Tranquillity in the Bush awaits...

Maninghi Lodge is settled on the banks of the mighty Olifants River in Balule Nature Reserve, which is situated in the Greater Kruger National Park. The Lodge boasts an unparalleled, 3km view of the Olifants River and the Blyde Canyon mountains in the background, with Maninghi often playing host to scores of elephant, hippo, lion and other wildlife, which come to the river to slake the thirsts brought by the African sun. Maninghi is family, couples and corporate-friendly, and the wide variety of activities around the area guarantees everyone is entertained.


Whether you want to sit back and relax, be adventurous, or you want a little more seclusion and solitude - we can help you book the perfect getaway!
