Honeyguide Mantobeni Camp is a remote bush camp, set in a grove of tamboti trees and reminds of Hemingway’s Africa. Guests are entertained on early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives in open game viewing vehicles and treated on sunset drinks and stunning views over the Mohwareng Hills. Large game like elephant, rhino, lion and hippo are frequently sighted in the reserve and in between meals and drives, guests can watch the game and birdlife pass by while relaxing at the pool or on guided walking safaris through the deep bush. Group tours to the nearby village of Welverdiend can be arranged, where you will learn more about the relationship between traditional and contemporary living. Other activities on site or nearby include bird watching from a newly built hide opposite a watering hole and plant life or footprint tracking. The bedroom tents breathes a colonial atmosphere and are built on wooden platforms, have roll-up walls and a run-around terrace for a closer-to-nature experience – even with sightings of elephants at the nearby waterhole from your room! Leather sofas, a single standing lamp and a stone-built bathtub completes the picture. The main building is more modern and boxier, with earth-coloured walls and columns built around the teak-decked dining area and pool.
