Manyeleti Big Cat Safari

If you have an interest in the African Big Cats and a passion for nature and wildlife, then experience the best that Greater Kruger has to offer with this Manyeleti Big Cat Safari! 

The Safari is led by a Professional Guide and Wildlife Photographer, Armand Grobler, who has been internationally recognised for his photography, winning multiple awards and has even been on international news for his famous ‘elephant itch’ photo!

This Safari is available in the legendary Manyeleti Private Game Reserve where we can off-road, taking you as close as [safely] possible to our wonderful wildlife, which is perfect for keen wildlife photographers.

Manyeleti also boasts one of the lowest vehicle densities in the Greater Kruger as there are just a few lodges within the reserve, thereby providing you with an exceptional wildlife experience!

The Manyeleti Game Reserve is part of the Greater Kruger National Park, sandwiched between the Sabi Sand and Timbavati reserves, with no fences in between, allowing the animals to move freely throughout the reserves. 

With abundant wildlife, including the famous African Big-five, which can be regularly seen on safari, this is an experience that will keep hearts racing and cameras clicking!

This safari is based on finding Africa’s Big Cats, but we will also be appreciating the beauty of other animals such as the graceful elephants, towering giraffes, dazzling zebras and so much more! 

Spending a minimum of 3-4 nights is suggested to find the Big Cats and to capture the true essence of Africa as you immerse yourself into nature.

You can choose to stay at one or more of the lodges, namely Tintswalo Manor House, Buffelshoek Tented Camp or Ndzhaka Tented Camp.
