Luxury tented accommodation in the Big 5 rich Manyoni Private Game Reserve
Mavela Game Lodge offers tented accommodation with a safari flair and all-inclusive luxury set in the Big 5 rich Manyoni Private Game Reserve. The lodge is run by a family of bird lovers with a commitment to wildlife conservation and as a result, Mavela guides offer a specialised birding safari. Guests can further appreciate the African bushveld through walking safaris, game drives and night drives or by visiting the main lodge’s large wooden veranda that overlooks a watering hole. The Manyoni Game Reserve is also a sanctuary for endangered species like the cheetah, wild dog, black rhino, and pangolin. The entire camp is unfenced for an immersive experience and so, guests are escorted back to their rooms after dinner.
Best time to go to Elephant Coast
The subtropical climate of the Elephant Coast offers visitors year-round warmth thanks to the Indian Ocean and closeness to Mozambique. The region has hot, wet summers and cooler, dry winters. With most of the rainfall occurring during the summer months, the best time to visit varies depending on what activities travellers would like to do. November and January are the best for tracking turtles, while whale watching is great between June and November. For the best beach weather, visit between April and September.
The Luxury Tent option offers a luxurious respite in safari-style tents with either single or king-size beds and en-suite facilities, including an outdoor shower with bush views. The rooms feature a modern African-inspired look and a private viewing deck with a birdbath, allowing you to watch wildlife from your private room.
