Enjoy the bush views in every direction and just listen to the stillness of this wonderful African wilderness. Our cosy viewing lounge deck raised on stilts jutting out over the rocks provides a stunning spot for leisurely game viewing or a quiet moment to enjoy a sun-downer absorbing the special beauty that surrounds you.
The rooms at Manyatta Rock Camp are completely unique.

Elephant Back Safaris
Kwa Madwala is extremely privileged to have two domesticated elephants that live within the Reserve and provide emotional and moving elephant experiences from safaris to interaction experiences. The elephants, Tswale and Modjadji are based in the 70 ha non-Big 5 area of the reserve about 10 minutes’ drive from Kwa Madwala’s entrance gate & also about a 10 minutes’ drive from Manyatta Rock Camp or a 5 minutes’ drive from the Gazebo Game Lodge.
An onsite transfer service is available for guests staying at one of the camps on the reserve to and from the stables and is included in the cost of any of the elephant activities. Our guests start all elephant experiences with a brief introduction to Tswali and Modjadji and a safety talk. The elephant experiences end with guests being offered the opportunity to feed the elephants with their favourite game pellets.
The game drives at Kwa Madwala are uniquely personal. Undertaken in open 4x4s, these safari vehicles offer a second-to-none open and panoramic experience. The drive takes you into the 4,000 hectare Kwa Madwala Private Conservancy. These drives offer an excellent overall game and wilderness experience.
