Wildlife Drives


| May 15, 2020

As in most other reserves, the lodges in Manyeleti generally offer twice-daily professionally-guided wildlife drives, which provide the perfect opportunity to get up close to African wildlife. A tracker usually joins the ranger, seated on the front of the car in a small seat, they scan the environment for wildlife. The late afternoon and evening drives include sunset drinks and often offer glimpses of nocturnal creatures. The guides will ask you about your favourite animals and do their best to ensure that your interests are met. They will also tell you about the vegetation of the region and explain the behaviours of the animals that you come across. Sometimes the guides can identify individual animals and talk about their history and their habits. For historical reasons, this area has few lodges and therefore enjoys limited vehicle traffic. Like the Sabi Sands, off-road game viewing and night driving is permitted. This gives a more varied experience than being limited to driving just on tarmac roads, as is required within the Kruger park itself. Larger animals frequently sighted in the reserve include elephants, rhinos, lions and hippos.
