Tucked away in a lush riverside forest, Makanyane Safari Lodge really does offer an unforgettable wildlife experience. My beautiful suite with its spectacular views was an absolute winner as well, and as the lodge allows a maximum of sixteen guests only, privacy and intimacy is also ensured. The main lodge is situated on the edge of a ravine, and it's as impressive as it sounds. It overlooks a waterhole, just one of the beautiful views which seem to be in abundance here.
The dining room opens out onto a vast deck area under the trees, so enjoying my meals was a given. Who wouldn't when your surroundings are this tranquil and magnificent? An isolated viewing deck not far from the main lodge offered me the incredible experience of watching elephants, zebra and impala stride by. The experience of staying here is one I will certainly never forget!
