Khoka Moya in Manyeleti was amazing. From the first game drive to the last we saw something different every single time. Our group of 6 were teamed up with the guide, Vestment, and the tracker, Wise, for a total of 10 game drives and we loved every minute. We saw prides of lions coming out of the bush to stalk a herd of about 500 buffalo. wild dogs chasing impalas, leopards dragging antelopes and porcupines up into trees for their feast, hyenas, elephants, giraffes, and everything you could imagine. We saw so many of these animals that we almost became jaded to it but Vestment and Wise made sure it was always exciting.
The camp was great with elephants, kudus, and leopards always visiting the watering holes during the day and walking by your tents at night. There are monkeys running around waiting for you to drop some food but never being aggressive. At no time did we ever not feel safe and if you love animals and want to see them the way they should be seen this is the place to go.I never thought we could get so close to some of these big 5, being only feet from lions and leopards.
I can't say enough about Vestment and Wise and their ability to find the animals and their knowledge of all of them. They made sure we knew everything about the animals, the bush, and the area. If I ever go back to Africa it will definitely be with Vestment and Wise at the Honeyguide Khoka Moya Camp.
