Maninghi prides itself on being family-friendly, first and foremost.  Our riverside lodge will keep our younger guests entertained for hours, including a splash pool for hot days, and a collection of indoor games for inclement weather!

Recommended activities for young families may include:

  • Game Drives - Watch your child's fascination grow as they are taught how to identify different animals by their tracks, or how to make a toothbrush out of a guarri bush twig
  • Moholoholo Rehabilitation Center - Excite every member of your family by getting close with animals such as cheetah and wild dogs.
  • Khamai Reptile Center – Boys and girls alike enjoy the thrill of seeing hairy spiders and slithering snakes (even if the moms aren't so keen)
  • Jessica Hippo - definitely a must! Get up close and personal with Jessica the Hippo.

For families with older kids, we can also suggest:

  • Kruger National Park - take a day trip to SA's most famous game reserve, and see if your spotting skills can find you The Big Five.
  • Blyde River Canyon - Scenic, beautiful and breathtaking.  A must for photo enthusiasts and landscape lovers.
  • Echo Caves - You've seen all the action above ground ... now let the family explore underneath it.
