About Maninghi Lodge
Maninghi Lodge is situated on the banks of the Olifants River in the Northern section of Balule Nature Reserve, which is open to the Kruger National Park.
This self-catering lodge has the 'The Big 5' within the reserve and is a bird watcher's paradise. Sit back, relax and enjoy viewing animals coming down to drink at the river, whilst from our viewing deck, watching birds feed in our two magnificent sycamore fig trees.
Take a guided game drive within Balule Nature Reserve, or opt to experience the wild on foot with a guided bush walk.

The loft has two open plan rooms, one with a queen bed and twin beds and the other room with twin single beds.
