Honeyguide Tented Safari Camps,is not in the Timbivati. However I like Honeyguide Tented Camp, and it deserves a mention.
Honeyguide Tented Camp is in the 23 thousand hectare Manyeleti Game Reserve adjoining Kruger National Park, and is just a five hour scenic drive from Johannesburg or a short flight either to the Manyeleti airstrip or to Hoedspruit, half-an-hour’s drive away.
They offer breathtaking wildlife experiences at the same time as pampering the senses with meticulous service and superb cuisine.

Guests wake each morning to the sound of beating drums. Following early morning refreshments served in the tents, activities at Honeyguide include game drives in open game viewing vehicles in the early morning and late afternoon or evening.
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.
The morning drive is followed by a sumptuous breakfast, after which guests can relax at the pool, participate in a short foot safari with one of the guides or view passing game at the waterhole next to the camp.
During game drives, refreshments and complimentary snacks are served at a scenic spot, particularly at sunset when the view from the Mohwareng Hills is spectacular!
Dinner comprises a 3-course meal served in the main dining area or next to a camp fire in the open boma area.Guests dine around one large table, ensuring a lively discussion of the day’s sightings and experiences.
To experience the African bushveld as it was known to the pioneers who first explored it, read Hemmingway. Or visit Mantobeni.
At Honeyguide Mantobeni Camp, we have stripped away all the barriers between the visitor and the environment. While retaining 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.
The reception area has a large lounge, indoor and outdoor dining facilities and a complimentary bar with a climate-controlled wine cellar, stocked with a wide range of fine South African vintages to browse through and enjoy.
To feel really at one with the majestic wildlife and boundless bushveld of Africa, nothing should separate you from its wonders. 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.
The large, en-suite tents are comfortably furnished in contemporary style and have either double or twin beds made up with fine cotton sheets and down duvets. A double shower and separate toilet are provided and a private veranda in the front of the tent provides a restful seating area for you to absorb the atmosphere in peace and tranquility.
At Honeyguide Khoka Moya, we cater for children under the age of twelve years.
Our children’s program includes a children’s activity centre, supervised by the camp staff where children can engage in a variety of activities such as beadwork making, cookie making, drawing and reading.
The centre is stocked with a DVD player and a variety of animal and nature related movies, toys as well as a small library aimed at a younger readership. The centre also has bathing and nappy changing facilities.
Our swimming pool has a children’s area and we can supply inflatable arm bands if required.
We have introduced an optional menu as an alternative for children, with food such as pasta, fish fingers, hamburgers, hotdogs and ice-cream.
Children are welcome to go on drives and walks with their parents. We have also added a short (1 hour) drive for the children after breakfast where time will be spent looking at some of the small wonders of the bushveld, as well as the occasional visit to the crocodile farm at Manyeleti Main Camp.
