#2 of 3 Speciality lodging in Kwa Madwala Private Game Reserve
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.

I took a group of 15 for the elephant experience with Amos and Richard- it was a truly memorable experience, very moving and also so nice to see the elephants are loved and cared for. We learned so much. The we had a wonderful lunch at Manyatta organised so well by the lovely Jeffrey. The views are stunning and the toilets?! well a magnificent surprise!!! thank you all for a wonderful day!

We did just the interaction with the elephants and the back safari. Unmissable! Beautiful, one of this thing you can do just in some parts of the world, Make sure you go to the Manyatta rock camp to have a meal or a drink. Stunning view... and make sure you visit their Toilets too, very unique! Totally recommend Elephant interaction, back safari and meal.....sleep there as well if you can afford, the manyattas are soooo beautiful

The access road is bumpy and rough. The first surprise was the toilet at reception which had a glass wall over looking the bushveld. The service and meals were good. The rooms however are something different to the normal standard rooms in construction, feels like a moles warren and each toilet has a private view over the expansive bushveld. Also the shower is also in the open, but don't worry your neighbours can't see you. The game drive was less than revealing although we saw a porcupine before sunset, elsewise only impala. What was annoying is the drivers who took us to Kruger National Park's attitude when the received their tips.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our south Africa tour. Short drive to our Kruger park day. Though there was an elephant we saw roaming around from our balcony . I was blown away by the location, the room and our views. Balcony , outside private shower and unbelievably cosy and unique rooms. Welcoming staff . food was ok except for the braai which was very disappointing as sausages were uncooked and very bland choices for food. Apart from that it was excellent .

What a stunning place. Really something different. Something on the downside...I booked and specifically asked if it is wheelchair friendly. Well its not in spite of what the lady said. The rooms are very small and difficult to manage in a wheelchair. Pathways are narrow and the one to the Dining area is with a downhill slope and has little speed bumps to ensure people dont slip but this makes it very difficult for someone in a wheelchair. Its a pity. We booked in, realized it wont work for us due to these restraints and we booked out again. I strongly recommend that they make it easier for disabled people
