Our thatched African styled "chalet" had two full bedrooms, two bathrooms downstairs and sleeping for two in the upstairs loft. There was a completely equipped kitchen, with sufficient dishes, glassware, pots and pans, a two-burner stove, small sink, and refrigerator. There was a television, but the channel selection was limited. Outside on the patio, there was a large table with chairs and a barbecue pit. There were air conditioners located in all three sleeping areas. The décor of the chalet with truly African.
Within the Manyane Resort were walkways leading to the many facilities, such as the main complex housing registration, restaurant and bar, and tour office. There was a miniature golf course, swimming pool, a small food store and gift shops. For the real outdoor enthusiast, safari tents and trailer (caravan) sites with fully serviced ablutions (bathrooms with showers) are available.
The Resort is completely fenced and guarded. However, when we drove up to our chalet, there were three huge ostriches grazing in our front yard; we also saw Impala and there were reports of a lion being sited within the camp.
