Khoka Moya Camp

Khoka Moya Camp

Waking to the soft drumbeat of native musicians, guests of Khoka Moya Camp welcome the new day with hot tea, coffee, and fresh fruit juice before embarking on a morning safari with experienced guides and trackers. For three hours (including a break for refreshments), explore the expansive Manyeleti Game Reserve for magnificent wildlife in an open game drive vehicle before returning to Khoka Moya for a sumptuous breakfast.

Many one-of-a-kind safari experiences await guests of Khoka Moya Camp, a luxury South African tented camp embracing both sides of a riverbed. The multi-hued lounge and spacious dining room overlook verdant lawns which lead to a refreshing swimming pool.

Twelve serene, modern tented suites offer king-sized bed and en-suite bathroom with double shower. Larger tents can easily accommodate a family of four, and a private outdoor seating area in front of each tent provides excellent viewing opportunities.

Children are welcome at Khoka Moya Camp, and a variety of activities encourage them to explore their surroundings and learn new skills. Outdoor treasure hunts, short guided walks, soccer, cricket, coloring, bead-making, cookie-making, and more enthrall children almost as much as one of Khoka Moya’s exceptional game drives. Alternative dishes preferred by children (pasta, hamburgers, hotdogs, etc.) are offered at the evening meal.

Adults appreciate the three-course lunch and ever-changing seasonal menus at Khoka Moya. Chef-prepared dinners are served in the main dining area, in the outdoor boma, or in the bush beneath the African skies.

Managed by the local Mnisi tribe, Manyeleti Game Reserve is on the border of the iconic Kruger National Park. Because no fencing is present, wildlife is free to roam between the park and the surrounding reserves. These game-rich areas claim nearly 150 species of large mammals, including Africa’s “big five”: elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino (both black and white). In addition to supporting the packs of endangered African wild dog, the region is home to many other animals including zebra, cheetah, giraffe, hippo, wildebeest, impala, and spotted hyena. Over 500 bird species have been spotted in the park, and indigenous reptiles include the black mamba and crocodile.

The region’s sixteen different ecosystems offer not only an abundance of wildlife but also almost 2,000 plant species. Botanical highlights include thorn tree, red bush-willow, knobthorn tree, marula tree, mopane tree, red grass, and buffalo grass.
