Bayete Private Camp is situated in the heart of Zululand, on the Manyoni Private Game Reserve (meaning “the place of birds” in isiZulu). Being part of the Bayete Zulu group of camps, this Private Camp is situated in a secluded area of the Reserve, amongst the Fever Trees on the banks of the Manzoni River. Built on the banks of a large dam, game viewing is never far from the large with many animals often visiting the waterhole during the day to quench their thirst in the mid-day sun.
The camp itself, offers a luxurious exclusive getaway, with three well appointed en-suite chalets, with ceiling fans and air-conditioning. An outdoor bathroom area allows you to take a relaxing bath under the stars, while taking in the sounds of the African bush.
The main area offers a large lounge area with a elegant fireplace and large library, to help ease the stress of everyday life. Relaxing on the verandah while observing the life at the waterhole is another option, and if the midday temperatures get too much, cooling off with a cocktail overlooking the waterhole can also ease you into the afternoon before heading out on another adventure into the Zululand thorn veld in search of Africa’s wild animals.
With 2 game drives offered per day, on an open 4×4 game drive vehicle, one is bound to come across many an amazing sighting. On top of the big 5, one can also view cheetah, Wild Dog, Black Rhino and that just includes the larger mammals. The riverine areas are teeming with a huge diversity of birdlife, enough to satisfy any avid twitcher!
