The rooms were lovely and we really adored the outside bush feel. We found the staff to be highly attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. It's a unique location and is well priced. I would highly recommend it.

Location on the top of hill is unique. The beauty of the landscape at the end of the day was charming. And the restaurant has a perfect view on the valley. The houses are so cute and we very much appreciate the pool after a day of travel. All staff is very nice.

Just loved it here! The staff simply couldn't do enough for you to make your stay the best possible and nothing was too much. The experience on offer is exceptional and all the drives we squeezed in were amazing. To let you know the character of the staff, we were booked on a Microlight safari but when it came to...

Wonderfully relaxing. Excellent and very plentiful food. Attentive obliging staff. Couldn't ask for more. You must do the elephant experience. The guides were very well informed and the episode was great fun. They were just introducing a cocktail menu when we were there, try the waterfall.

We should have stayed longer. Between the beauty of the facility and the attentiveness of all the staff, this is a worthwhile stop on a tour of the area. Keep your eye out for the highly experienced monkeys, the little thieves! The elephant interaction was incredible.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Manyatta Rock Camp’s accommodation is very unique and combines extremely creative architecture with its simplistic elevated rock environment. Looking like giant rocks our unique dome shaped bedrooms are scattered across the rocky outcrop with fabulous views out across the bush from the private wooden deck of each unit. Manyatta has been skillfully designed to blend in with the surrounding natural environment and to ensure that all rooms offer a private wooden deck for bright mornings and lazy afternoons overlooking the African bush. An outside shower and chairs on the deck make the decks very popular with guests. Manyatta Rock camp accommodation is sold including dinner, bed and breakfast. Subtle lighting around the camp and footpaths connect all rooms to the swimming pool, boma, dining deck, bar, day Spa and viewing lounge deck. All 27 rooms are comfortable yet tastefully furnished and infused with elegant African touches. Simplicity in the bush! The bedrooms are air-conditioned with two twin beds which can be made up as a queen size bed. Included is a mini fridge (which can be stocked as a bar upon request). The en-suite bathroom has dual his and hers basins and bath.Six of the accommodation units also feature a separate living room complete with sofa bed. These units are well suited to families with children. Maximum room occupancy in these units is 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children 12 years and under.The beautifully appointed Honeymoon Suite features a large four poster bed, private deck and shower and is ideally located for maximum privacy.Comfortable and elegant without being fussy, Manyatta is praised for its relaxed charm, unique bedroom design and stunning hilltop location.Guests should not walk around unattended at night for their own safety. A ranger is always on standby to assist guests to their rooms with his torch at night. Should a ranger for some reason not be available please ask at reception to be assisted. ... more   less
