Honey Guide Camp, Kruger National Park
|Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, SOUTH AFRICA.|
Description: Honey Guide CampThe Honeyguide Tented Safari Camps are situated in the 23 thousand hectare Manyeleti Game Reserve adjoining Kruger National Park. They offer breathtaking wildlife experiences at the same time as pampering the senses with meticulous service and superb cuisine.
Morning and evening game tracking drives in open vehicles bring you into close contact with the Big Five effortlessly and safely. Highly experienced guides will take you on foot to bring into clear focus the magic of the bush with its myriad of busy insects and resplendent birdlife.
There are two camps. Mantobeni Camp, which retains enough of the creature comforts to satisfy the luxury-loving animal in you. The tented camp is set among Tamboti trees on the banks of a riverbed. From the sundeck of the sparkling swimming pool, you can watch elephant visiting the nearby waterhole to enjoy their own cooling off time.
At Honeyguide Khoka Moya Camp you will be in close and personal touch with your environment without sacrificing the comforts and security you expect of a luxury safari. The camp has been designed to reflect the simplicity and openness of African living. Using the universal building material of corrugated iron, reminiscent of the houses of the early gold prospectors, and aged planks recycled from a previous wooden structure, Khoka Moya camp has been created to a traditional African plan.
The communal lounge, dining and bar areas encircle an open atrium where al fresco evening meals are served around a massive log fire. The climate-controlled wine cellar offers many fine South African vintages to meet your personal tastes. Manicured green lawns flow through to the pool and outside bar.
