Makyani Game Lodge A Bespoke Wellness Programme In The Wildest Nature

MAKANYI PRIVATE GAME LODGE WILL SOON BE LAUNCHING A BESPOKE WELLNESS WEEK ALONG ITS LUXURY SAFARI PACKAGES IN SOUTH AFRICA.

Wellness is a new concept in the world of game safaris, however it is also an extremely intelligent fit. For those looking for a truly immersive experience in nature and wildlife; the bush provides a natural backdrop for a retreat-like experience. Imagine a week immersed in nature, with relaxation, meditation, health and nutritional experts designing a bespoke program to re-align your body and mind.

This pioneering concept is the brainchild of the British owner Jessica Gold, who opened the Makanyi Lodge in 2015 after falling in love with the place during her travels and African Safari experience. This relatively young luxury hotel is located in the game-rich southern Timbavati Private Nature close to the Kruger National Park. Makanyi Private Game Lodge is located in open, acacia woodlands. An immaculately landscaped sub-tropical oasis dotted with water features leads through to the stylish main lodge with views beyond to the Marula grove and a lively dam that attracts antelope, hippo and many other species.

Where old-world safari charm meets contemporary design, wellness and relaxation

Seamlessly blending into the reserve, Makanyi is a contemporary property constructed of natural woods, thatch and stone; and is one of the largest rooms to be found in the bush. The seven tastefully appointed luxury suits enjoy light, neutral colours and enjoy a stylish African flavour. All have an oversized bed, lounge area with fireplace, and a spacious bathroom, while outside your private deck overlooks the bush. Two of the chalets are honeymoon suites and boast private plunge pools.
