Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge

Designed with the environment in mind, Sanctuary Makanyane Lodge and its guest suites are constructed from local wood, stone and thatch and blend wonderfully within their beautiful surroundings. Hidden in the forest area, this unique lodge is a haven for couples seeking a romantic and intimate lodge within a magnificent game viewing area. The wrap around glass-walled, guest suites offer stunning views of the river, affording guests the opportunity to witness the animals from the comfort of their sumptuous beds.

Just 8 luxury suites make for an incredible degree of privacy and seclusion, opulent bathrooms and private sun decks overlooking the Marico River allow guests a feeling of instantly being part of their natural surroundings, or the uniqueness of enjoying a romantic night sleeping out under the African sky, with the blanket of stars and only a scatter of lanterns to keep you from total darkness. A 'must-do' experience for all couples!

Catering for a maximum of only sixteen guests at a time, the excellent lodge staff ensure a personal and professional attention to detail for all guests. The lodge offers a wonderful dining experience, accompanied by their award-winning wine selection.

Our stay at Makanyane was perfect from the moment we entered the lodge for the first time. The hotel is gorgeous, the staff was wonderful, friendly and attentive. The food was copious and delicious and we were absolutely spoiled. The game drive experience was more than we could have asked for or imagined - we wish we could have stayed longer, and will definitely make our way back to Makanyane…
