At night you can hear the jackals calling to one another and in the morning you may wake up to impala or zebra grazing in front of your chalet or tent.

The walk-in aviary is ideal for getting close up photographs of wild birds. We love the walking trail within the Manyane complex, because you get to see kudu, zebra, impala, birds, insects, vervet monkeys and warthog up close.....

"It's 764 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, South Africa
