Nice and beautiful place and surroundings and excellent service and facilities. The entire stall was very helpful and courteous. I was wishing my family was also with me to enjoy and experience everything. The best part was the journey to Kruger National Park. Since I had paid for all the meals, the lodge had taken care of providing the breakfast...

We stayed at Manyatta Rock Camp at Kwa Madwala. The camp itself is exceptionally unique and is built to blend into the surrounding rocks. There are game drives, walking tours and an elephant experience. The game drives and elephant experience is exceptional. If you have time, try and visit the Kruger Park for a day as well.

Thank you for your positive review and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Some of our clients find the Walking Safaris very interesting as focus is given to overall vegetation, plants, insects and spoor. It just depends on what you where your interest lies.

Kwa Madwala is small, but worth a stop if you're travelling through South Africa visiting several places. It's a good, small reserve to visit before going into the much more vast Kruger. I especially enjoyed their dining with a view, their offered experiences (especially the elephant ride), and the lovely architecture of the bomas. Great attention to detail.

Our stay at Manyatta Rock Camp was really memorable. We went down for the Easter weekend. The staff was friendly and the landscape and camp is absolutely beautiful. The Elephant Safari, was an experience of a lifetime. Fantastic romantic breakaway.

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
