We stayed in the Manyatta Rock Camp for 3 nights in May and loved it. A great escape from the world. The camp is near Kruger NP, without being to busy. The staff was very helpful and looked very well after us. We had Reetus as Guide for the Game Drives and he was very good. Always up for a...

We stayed at Manyatta Rock in May this year for 5 nights for our Honeymoon, and were over the moon with our choice of resort. Mike and the team went out of their way to make sure that we had a very pleasant stay and both the service and food were well above our expectations. This was my first safari,...

Absolutely mad about Manyatta Rock Camp in Kwa Madwala Private Game Reserve! I very much enjoyed my time at Manyatta and wished I could have stayed at least another night longer. This little rock camp with only 27 suites could really market themselves as a boutique hotel in the bush. Service was excellent from arrival to departure, staff was attentive...

We stayed at Kwa Madwala last month for 5 nights and just loved it there. The setting is beautiful, the rooms clean and comfortable with stunning views from the deck.

We stayed here in August and had the most amazing time. From the time we were picked up from the airport to the time we left a week later the staff couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are like separate pods with loads of room and large bathrooms. The outside shower is amazing and must be experienced. Perfectly private...

I spent a very enjoyable time here in September.

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. Lunch, safaris and all activities are extra and can either be pre booked or booked on site. 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. Two 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. Four of the accommodation units also feature a separate living room with an extra single bed; these units are well suited to families with one child 12 years and under, maximum room occupancy in these units is 3 adults or 2 adults and 1 child 12 years and under. The beautifully appointed Honeymoon Suite features a large four poster bed, lounge, 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. ... more   less
