It was very peaceful and quiet. Enjoyed listening to the lions roar and we saw a lioness, giraffe, warthog impala. Lovely bird life.The position was a good vantage point to view game. We saw a herd of buffalo on the hill in the early morning.

The lodge is magnificently set in the More heart of Zululand, and situated within the Manyoni Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal, against the backdrop of the Lebombo Mountains.Manyoni Private Game Reserve is an endangered species reserve of 24 000 hectares. It was recently proclaimed as a nature reserve and received international recognition for the introduction of 28 black rhino in 2005. The reserve hosts the BIG 5, over 70 mammal species and a diverse bird life of over 450 species.African Spirit Game Lodge accommodation is intimate and consists of 4 quaint, fully serviced chalets. Each comfortable and stylish chalet accommodates 2 people with an en-suit bathroom, air-conditioner, mini bar, ceiling fan, tea/ coffee facilities and a private veranda. The paths are well-lit and connect the chalets to the main lodge. We also offer accommodation in the form of two self-catering units - one 6 sleeper unit and one 4 sleeper unit. These units are fully furnished and fully equipped for self-catering purposes. No meals are provided for these units. Guests supply their own food. Our main lodge features a comfortable and relaxed dining room, cozy lounge, bar with viewing deck, open fire place attached to the lodge and a swimming pool with a thatched gazebo, offering our guest a welcome retreat after a day in the African bush.
