The safari lodge is situated in the 60,000 acre Manyoni Private Game Reserve that received international recognition for the introduction of black rhino as an effort to conserve the highly endangered species.

The Reserve is a Big Five Game Reserve and also hosts among others, elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, buffalo, cheetah, hyena, wild dog and plains game animals that are native to the area. African Spirit Photo Safaris evolved out of a safari company that was established in 1990 and is based on a private big five game reserve in the heart of Manyoni Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

This Photographic Safari’s focus is smaller groups receiving personal attention, being guided on dedicated photographic tours to some of our region’s most famous destinations.
