Bordering the Kruger National Park and situated between the Timbavati and the Sabi Sand Reserves lies the 23 000 hectare Manyeleti Game Reserve. Manyeleti means, “The Place of the Stars” in the local Shangaan language.
The camps 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 4 x 4 vehicles bring you into close contact with the Big Five as well as the other aspects of our wildlife, and allows you to leave us with an unforgettable safari experience.
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 is an old African myth that the stars are the doors to heaven. At Khoka Moya they shine brightly and one soon begins to suspect that this might indeed be so. The camp is situated on both sides of a river bed, offering an authentic African experience
