Self-Catering & Non Self-Catering Accommodation with Camping & Caravan Sites
The Manyane Resort is situated on the edge of the Pilanesberg National Park. This game reserve is in the crater of a long extinct volcano formed by eruptions approximately 1300 million years ago, which is now home to a wide diversity of wild animals including the Big 5. Numerous Stone and Iron Age sites, scattered throughout the park offer proof of mans early habitation in the Pilanesberg.
The Pilanesberg Game Reserve is located between the dry Kalahari and the wetter Lowveld (as found in the Kruger Park) with an overlap of mammals, birds and vegetation from the various biomes in this transition zone. Animals such as springbok, hartebeest and brown hyena, normally found in arid areas, are here living side-by-side with the more moist-area residents, such as impala, giving a wide diversity of species for guests staying at Manyane to see. The topography too is stunningly beautiful, with hills, the high edge of the caldera, forested ravines, the bushveld and rolling grasslands.
