Kruger National Park

South Africa's largest and most famous game reserve is a short distance away from Maninghi Lodge. Put your spotting skills to the test and see if you can spot the Park's Big 5 residents! Kruger is also home to 550 species of bird. The nearest Gate to the lodge is Phalaborwa Gate, which will take approximately 1hour 15minutes (including our road). We do recommend an early start (get to the gate as it opens) as predators are still active in the earlier, cooler mornings. (Gate times posted below)
