The year 2023 brought us an abundance of joy, cherished moments, and awe-inspiring bushveld sunsets, all of which were enriched to this degree, because we were able to share each one with our wonderful shareholders and valued guests. With that being said, we'd like to take a moment to express our gratitude for the memories we've created and the connections we've built with you during the course of this past year. Thank you for continuing to entrust your

 

Manzi Monaté moments to us, and for standing shoulder to shoulder with us in taking care of our beloved Manzi Monaté to ensure ongoing treasured holiday memories. In disbelief that the year is almost behind us, we find ourselves pausing for a moment in the shade of one of our magnificent trees, and... reflecting on the incredible moments we’ve shared together. Come along with us as we delve into the highlights of the past six months at Manzi Monaté.

Ensuring that your holiday haven remains the place you adore and eagerly anticipate coming back to is our prime mission, and we’ve been putting in the work:

Heritage Day

Heritage Day is all about bringing diverse groups of people together, and at Manzi Monaté we did just that. We had a Heritage Day party at the Kiosk and invited all our wonderful Resort guests to enjoy the flavours and dishes from our childhood. A special thanks to Anna and Emily for ensuring that everyone enjoyed their time with us.

 

Bring & Braai

Our Bring & Braai's are always something to look forward to. It’s an opportunity for our lovely guests to get to know each other and create unforgettable memories together. Our helpful staff is always ready to lend a hand with the braai as they serve up some delicious pap and sauce. It’s truly all about the good times and great food here at Manzi Monaté!

2023 Rugby World Cup

The Manzi Team went all out to cheer on the Bokke during the 2023 Rugby World Cup. We adorned Reception with some fun bunting flags and decked it out with green and yellow balloons for some extra flair. Plus, at check-in, we served tasty cupcakes decorated with the colours of the South African flag.

 

Entertainment

We’ve had a great time with our guests over the past few months. The kids have had a blast participating in activities like hula hoop and sack races. These planned and hosted entertainment activities certainly elevate the fun factor to a whole new level, and turn school holidays into magical adventures for our younger guests, and the whole family.
