Manyatta Rock Camp

Manyatta Rock Camp is a safari camp with private en suite accommodation and includes dinner and bed and breakfast. Each lodge has its own private terrace where you can enjoy the spectacular views.

Choose from our many safaris and activities to make your own agenda. Manyatta Rock Camp includes a viewing deck and swimming pool.

Watch the sun rise over the Lembobo Mountains to the east and in the evenings marvel at the orange glow of the sun as it sets again in the west. Enjoy the bush views in every direction and just listen to the stillness of this wonderful African wilderness. Our cosy viewing lounge deck raised on stilts jutting out over the rocks provides a stunning spot for leisurely game viewing or a quiet moment to enjoy a sun-downer absorbing the special beauty that surrounds you.

This is Manyatta Rock Camp. Two towering granite rocks reach towards the sky to provide a dramatic setting for this unique camp which sits on a typical African kopjie. Located in the heart of the Kwa Madwala Private Game Reserve, Manyatta Rock Camp is the perfect location to enjoy your tailor made holiday of adventure safari and relaxation.

In comparison to most safari lodge experiences which are often structured, set and defined in advance we have a more flexible approach to help you tailor make your holiday to suit you and the time you would like to spend with us.

How to structure your stay at Manyatta Rock Camp

The Manyatta Rock Camp is charged on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis with lunch and activities charged separately as you require them. This way you only pay for what you want to do. For the more energetic a busy on-the-move adventure packed experience awaits you, and for those who choose more of a ‘time out’ experience, this may be to just relax on your private look out deck, enjoy a treatment in our spa or spend some time reading by the pool.

Manyatta Rock Camp can be pre booked inclusive of extra activities and lunch or alternatively booked on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis only, leaving you to decide on your safaris and other activities when you have arrived.

Whatever your needs you can be sure that our staff, safari managers and team will do all they can to make you feel welcome and ensure your stay with us will be a magical experience you will never forget.
