An amazing stay!

Mananga is walking distance to the Paul Kruger gate, but feels like a spot of your own in the wild. Has everything you could need and a great view. Would recommend an off road vehicle for the drive up to the villa.

Excellent stay at the Kruger gate.

We had a wonderful 4-night stay with young children. Extremely close to the Kruger gate. The kitchen is well-equipped and the bedrooms and living room very spacious. The kids enjoyed the DVD selection.

Baie oulike plek.

Baie lekker gekuier. Pragtige plek. Daar was net geen warm water in die kombuis nie en die toebehore in die kombuis kan bietjie aandag kry. Sal beslis weer daar kuier.

Beautiful house and surroundings with everything we needed.

The only very important thing that was not good, was the main beds in the bedrooms. My husband's side of the bed seemed to be ok but not mine, so I did not sleep well because the wooden base under the mattress is half broken and falling apart. The mattress is very soft and floppy so it falls through the hole in the base below and makes a horrible hole that you must sleep in. My back was stuffed. Also the night frill had ugly brown stains on it. Other than the bed issues. It was really a lovely place to stay. And we would definitely stay again if the bed issues are sorted out.

Hugely spacious and comfortable accommodation on Kruger's doorstep.

We spent 4 nights at Mananga in mid-November and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Set on a small private property right outside the Kruger Park gate, the lodge is very conveniently located for getting into the park. The villa itself is huge and clean, the rooms are frankly cavernous, but comfortable. All the amenities are provided (even an ice-maker) and it is fully serviced. There is a gas braai and a large fire area at front for sitting out and enjoying a bush fire. There is also some nice birdlife and it's nice to have impala and kudu waltzing through the camp.

Fantastiese wegbreekplekkie.

Lieflike huisie naby Kruger-hek. Goed ingerig. Wonderlike kuier stoep met 'n fantastiese braai. Baie rustig met bokkies en voëls by die huis.

Pragtige ligging, netjies, skoon en ’n groot bederf.

Hoor al die geluide (leeis, hiënas, olifante) in die aande. Alles is modern en daar is gerief. Dit was moeilik om tot daar te ry, maar hulle sal ons gou weer sien!

Wonderlike tyd gehad by Mananga!

Ons het die tyd by Mananga onsettend baie geniet! Die verblyf was baie netjies, met ruim kamers en 'n wonderlike stoep en boma/braai-area. Sal gerus weer gaan kuier.

Rustigheid vir die siel.

Die Villa by Mananga Bush Retreat het al ons vereistes oortref. Puik ligging naby aan die Krugerhek, gemaklike verblyf, met WiFi en vermaaklikheidskanale op die televisie. Daar is 'n ten volle toegeruste kombuis, met 'n keuse tussen 'n gasbraaier en 'n vuurherd om op te braai. Wilde diere beweeg gedurig om die huis, met 'n hiëna wat nou en dan nuuskierig kom rondkyk. Die enigste tekort is dat daar nie 'n swembad is nie. Gelukkig is die Proteahotel net om die draai, met 'n swembad wat uitkyk oor die Sabirivier.

Hidden gem.

Min dat 'n plek selfs mooier vertoon as die foto's op die webblad. Met Mananga Bush Villa kry mens presies waarvoor jy betaal het en soveel meer.

It's been a while since we got such good rest.

Thanks so much Jozie, Julia and Charles for spoiling us so much. All we did was sit, eat, sleep, rest, repeat. Mananga has a perfect location close to the Kruger gate if you want to visit without driving to far. The Protea Hotel is just a stone's throw away if you feel like spa treatments or if you don't want to cook. Their Bona meal is also recommended. There was almost an issue with the baboons, but Charles sorted it out. They just wanted some of Jozie's chocolates and Oreos. We will definitely be back.

Ons het lank laas so heeltemal gerus!

Baie dankie aan Jozie, Julia en Charles, dat julle ons so bederf het. Ons kon net sit, eet, slaap, rus, en weer herhaal. Mananga is perfek geleë naby die Krugerhek, as jy gou wil gaan draai ry, sonder om te ver te ry. Die Protea Hotel is a klipgooi weg vir spabehandelings en as mens te lui is om self kos te maak. Hulle Bona ete is ook aan te beveel. Die bobbejane het amper amok gemaak, maar gelukkig het Charles hulle uitgesorteer. Hulle wou eintlik ook net van Jozie se sjokelade en Oreos hê. Ons sal definitief weer kom!

Wildlife in back garden.

Very nice place, very friendly people. The backyard contains a fireplace, kudu’s, gnu's, zebras and … baboons. These are clever animals that can penetrate your house and do so when given a chance. It is an annex to the Kruger Gate. For excursions you are picked up at the front door. Highly recommended.

We will definitely be back.

Mananga provided a luxurious feel to rustic bush holiday with the highlight most certainly being the wild animals who come right into the back garden to visit. Mananga provided the perfect escape from the city for my family. The seclusion of the house is perfect for the in the bush experience. This was my in laws first visit to the Kruger Park and they were absolutely thrilled by the animals who came right up to the house to visit. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and luxurious giving us the home away from home feeling.
