Located on the edge of a ravine, Makanyane's dramatic main lodge overlooks a stream-filled waterhole shaded by a dense canopy
of trees. Enormous ancient Leadwood trees in the lounge and the dining room support the sweeping thatch roof. The spacious lounge
area has two rock fireplaces and opens out onto a wide wooden deck hanging over the ravine and waterhole below. On this wooden
deck is the well stocked bar with its sweeping roof. The gracious dining room also opens onto the vast deck area, perfect for enjoying
a meal under the trees while watching game drink below. The main lodge has a curio shop where you can browse for souvenirs,
a library area and an extensive wine cellar.
Upstairs is the air-conditioned den with a viewing deck, the elevated position providing panoramic views of the grasslands. Sweeping
plains roll out towards the horizon, surrounded by a breathtaking skyline.
The secluded swimming pool is the ideal place to soak up the African sun, while enjoying the idyllic scenery.
Close to the main lodge is the boma, an open air dining area enclosed by bush, reeds and trees. The boma is the perfect place to
enjoy dinner next to a blazing fire. Sit back and enjoy the view out over the Marico River, the stars blinking through the canopy of leaves
Not far from the main lodge, an isolated viewing deck stands on the edge of the plains. In this tranquil, tree shaded place, you
can enjoy a quiet drink, while watching elephants stride through herds of waterbuck, zebra and impala grazing in these breathtaking
grasslands. You may even see lion or cheetah moving through the grass, their vigilant stare searching for their next meal.
