Limpopo Game and Nature ReservesThe Manyeleti Game Reserve
The fenceless borders the Manyeleti Game Reserve shares with the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands Game Reserve and the Timbavati Game Reserve, forms an integral ecological unit where all the animals roam free.
The Mnisi people lived and occupied this land for many generations and in the new South Africa, they instituted a land claim for the return of their ancestral grounds. The Manyeleti Game Reserve is now managed by the Mnisi tribe, who are committed to retaining the integrity of the game reserve and unlocking the tourism potential to the benefit of the Mnisi people and surrounding communities.
All the lodges within Manyeleti Reserve are privately owned and lease a concession of land within the reserve.
The most dominant tribe in the area is the Shangaan, and in Shangaan, 'Manyeleti' means "Place of Stars." A clear winter's night will attest to the aptness of this name, as it seems like the sky is bursting at the seams with stars. This hot area experiences summer rainfall but the rainy season is never guaranteed to bring as much rain as they would like and droughts are sometimes experienced.
It is dryer here than further south and animals can often be seen at the waterholes.
The winter days are normally bright and clear with cold evenings.
