Makanyi lodge itself provides a graceful yet unobtrusive sanctuary of calm that goes a long way to rival the enchantment of the bush which embraces it.  Seven enormous suites and one sumptuous family suite blend seamlessly into their environment and offer the space and time to fully unwind; be that by relaxing on your suite’s deck with panoramic views of the bush and our active dam, curling up before a roaring fire in the evening chill or soaking up the aura in a glorious  pedestal bath.

Luxury suite & Luxury pool suite

Throughout your stay your comfort and pleasure are our priority, which is why we strive to ensure that every detail is just right both indoors and outdoors. From every aspect of your suite to your food, drinks and your game drives, here at Makanyi quality and service are our watchwords.

Every one of our seven suites overlook the magnificent dam and comes with an extra-large bed, a relaxing sitting area with its own gas fireplace, a beautiful bathroom with a spacious shower and separate bathtub, a private deck with loungers and an outdoor shower. Premium Healing Earth amenities, complimentary Wi-Fi, telephone, hair dryer, safe, mini bar, a Nespresso coffee machine and tea making facilities are found in every room.

Two of our seven rooms are luxury pool suites, they are located furthest from the main lodge and offer more privacy as well as a wonderful private plunge pool on the deck – ideal for a soak with a glass of champagne under a blanket of stars.

Marula suite

This new 2-bedroomed suite escape sleeps a maximum of 4 guests making it ideal for families, a groups of friends, two couples travelling together or just a couple looking for that extra privacy, flexibility and more of a home away from home feel.

Set away from the main lodge and with 366m² of space (inclusive of a large outdoor deck), the Marula Suite features two en-suite bedrooms each with their own shower and separate bath, a dining room and kitchen, a large living room with cable TV which opens on to a vast outdoor deck with its own Boma and private swimming pool. On the deck guests can relax and unwind with a gin and tonic after an exhilarating day, watch the sun set and the stars rise.
