Greater Kruger Walking Trails & Safaris
Experience the Greater Kruger National Park like never before. Big 5 wilderness trails on foot and 4×4.
Big 5 Wilderness Walking Trail and 4×4 Safaris
Manukuza is blessed as its area of our operation spans over two magnificent Big 5 locations.
The first being the Balule Nature Reserve which forms part of the Associated Private Nature Reserves (APNR) within the Greater Kruger National Park and the second, the Greater Makalali Nature Reserve (GMNR) renowned for its conservation efforts.
This iconic landscape has for hundreds of years been regarded as South Africa’s premier Big 5 game viewing area. Our remote location isolates us from the outside world and allows you to become totally immersed in an authentic bushveld environment where the ‘hustle and bustle’ of city life is forgotten.
Walking Trails in these wild places are unique, the realisation of being exposed to natures elements awakens your senses and emotions. You become aware of your surroundings and the forgotten silence becomes real – you are able to unwind and escape.
Our Greater Kruger walking trails, whether it be on foot or in 4×4, meander along these important water sources allowing us to explore and interpret whatever we encounter. Although many large mammals rely on these rivers, we do not focus on the Big 5 and they are not guaranteed.
However, what is assured is an outing which will expose you to some of the most beautiful areas unseen by many and memories that will be spoken of for years to come.

What Our Guests Say
“There aren’t enough stars to explain what a special gem Manukuza is! Truly the most immersive and AUTHENTIC bush experience you will ever have! Hugest thanks to Greg and the team for all the spoils and making it such an unforgettable experience. We’re already planning our return.”
“We enjoyed wonderful walking experiences, sleeping in the comfortable lodge with all self catering facilities as well as a night in the bush under the stars. The views from the lodge are absolutely beautiful and sitting around the fire in the boma at night or in the bush is always the best way to end your day.”
“Our time in Manukuza was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The tailor made activities gave us a perspective of the bush that one rarely gets on an average trip to the bush. From tracking spoor, tasting leaves and spending quality time with animals.”
