Honeyguide Mantobeni is a tented safari camp located in the Manyeleti Game Reserve which is adjacent to the Kruger National Park. Experience the African bush and its diverse wildlife during the game drives in open-air vehicles where you can spot the Big 5 and guided walks, all supervised by qualified and experienced guides and trackers.
Mantobeni Camp is designed to reflect Hemingway’s Africa. There are 15 tents which are nestled in a Tamboti grove overlooking a dry river bed. The reception area comprises a large sitting area, an outdoor area with a splash pool and sun loungers, a bar and an extensive climate-controlled wine cellar.
Game visiting the nearby watering hole can be seen from the swimming pool deck which adjoins the reception area.
Mantobeni Camp is more of a remote bush camp, set in a grove of tamboti trees. Its free-standing bedroom tents are set on wooden platforms, with roll-up walls and a run-around terrace, making for a very “up and close-to-nature” feel.
Food at the camp is a highlight, and is a communal affair, usually served outdoors at a long table, with log fires and torches to create a really authentic bush feel. Simple homemade dishes, using predominantly local produce, are plentiful and exquisitely presented.
There are 15 tents which are nestled in a Tamboti grove overlooking a dry river bed. The tents at Mantobeni Camp are furnished with king-size beds which can be converted to twin single beds, mosquito nets and soft leather couches. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with a sunken concrete bath, double shower, his-and-hers basins and a separate toilet. The tents are each set on a wooden platform that has 5 steps leading up to the tent. There is soft lighting within the tent and mosquito repellent is provided for guests.
Local area description
Guests are taken on game drives in open game viewing vehicles in the early morning and late afternoon/evening. Late afternoon and evening drives include sunset drinks, views over the Mohwareng Hills, and glimpses of nocturnal creatures. Larger game frequently sighted in the reserve includes elephant, rhino, lion and hippo. In between meals and drives, watch the game and bird life pass by while relaxing by the pool or take a walking safari through the deep bush, accompanied by an experienced, armed ranger; it can be hot work, but it’s very exciting – seeing the animals from a vehicle just doesn’t seem to compare. Group tours are available to the nearby village of Welverdiend, where guests will learn about the relationship between traditional and contemporary living.
