10/10 Exceptional

Best stay ever! True "Out of Africa"experience.
This was far the most exciting and the most anxiously anticipated stay by our family ever. We were worried that we dared (way to adventurously) to stay at the private accommodations in the middle of bushes/savannah in S. Africa (near Kruger Park). This was something very exotic and a bit scary to book on line without ever seeing it, but we really did hit the jack pot. Pictures and reviews were awesome on the site ,but you never know if this will be a reality once you get there. Mananga Private Bush Retreat preceded all our expectations. EVERYTHING about this place was 5 stars , house itself (with everything you could possible need), LOCATION, LOCATION- spectacular with zebras and kudus waiting for us and greeting us daily (in the back yard -see photos attached). Maid service (better then any hotel), house owner -caring, available and very resourceful . If you question where to stay near Kruger Park, this is the right way to experience S. Africa and safari with only few 100 yards away from major hotel with all other amenities if you wish to use. We also loved outdoor cooking with BBQ and fire -pit.
