Our 12 Luxurious Suites are designed to give a sense of being alone in, and
integrated with, the surrounding unspoiled African Bush. All suites are
elegantly furnished with attention paid to the little comforts that make any
Mantis property memorable.
The suites are all named after places of interest in the tale of “Jock of the
Bushveld”. Linked to the main lodge by meandering walkways, the suites boast
private plunge pools, and furnishings reflecting the region’s distinctive mix of
Swazi, Shangaan and colonial cultures.
Different venues available, depending on the size of the Wedding Party.
Menus can be personalized for your requirements. (Please advise of any dietary
requirements in advance). The chef and his dedicated team conjure up dishes
inspired by this unique location, as well as all of the influences that have
passed through it at one time or another. From the primal flavours of wild game
and local herbs picked from the surrounding bushveld to the spicy tastes of
visiting Arab traders, and traditional dishes introduced by European gold miners
– guests can take their taste buds on a true African safari.
Ease the strains of modern living from every muscle and mind at our fully
equipped Spa. We honour our cultural heritage by using Essentially Africa body
products, and support the conservation of animal, bird and plant life. This
philosophy characterises our Signature Spa Treatments, which have been inspired
by the richness of Africa’s soil, its abundant plant life, and the
life-preserving grooming rituals of its wild animals. Treat yourself to spa and
beauty treatments the morning of your wedding…
