f money was no object, where in the world would you go?’ asks Bupa Travel Insurance. They continue, ‘Let your imagination run wild with thoughts of spotting a mischievous cheetah in Africa or perfecting your warrior pose on a private island yoga retreat.’ There’s no need to ponder any longer! While residing at our atmospheric lodge, you’ll be a lion’s roar away from the world-renowned Kruger National Park, full of Africa’s most exciting and exotic game. Spot elephants and rhinos from the safety of our state-of-the-art vehicles; the supremely fortunate may even catch a glimpse of the rare white lion, which resides in the Timbavati region.

In their article, ‘World’s Most Luxurious & Exclusive Boutique Holidays ’, the holiday insurer has whittled the down the world’s very best experiences and the ultimate in luxury accommodation, with Makanyi Private Game Lodge being named as one of the best places to experience a South African safari. “Looking to tick the ‘Big Five’ off your bucket list?” asks Bupa. “It’s on safari in South Africa where you’ll witness the out-of-this-world moments that make travelling so appealing.”

A safari adventure is like no other holiday, as you experience the jaw-dropping wonders nature provides. The remote location and exotic nature have rightfully earned an African safari a place on most wanderlust bucket lists. But there are plenty of other awe-inspiring activities available at Makanyi. We provide guided bush walks and fishing trips for those seeking alternative adventures in the South African wilderness. Despite our rural location in the spectacular plains of the reserve, you won’t have to compromise on comfort when you stay at Makanyi, as the article is quick to advise.

Bupa describes Makanyi Private Game Lodge, ‘Exclusive is the order of the day in the seven open-plan suites in Timbavati. From free-standing baths, open fires and plush beds draped in mosquito nets with unparalleled views to the fine cuisine and even finer list of cocktails, every detail at this lodge demonstrates quality.’ The opulent experience extends all the way to the relaxing spa treatments on offer, which can be enjoyed from the privacy of your room. Honeymooners who opt for our dedicated suite will enjoy the additional luxury of a private plunge pool, gazing up at the stars from our relaxing corner of South Africa.
