Remember that old ad 'I liked the razor so I bought the company'? Well, Jessica Gold went to South Africa and fell in love with the animals and the sunsets and the wild, wide sky and a year later she’d bought her own safari lodge and moved there. Jessica’s dream-come-true comes in the form of Makanyi Private Game Lodge in the on edge of the Timbavati, which translates as ’the Place Where Something Sacred Came Down to Earth’. The Timbavati is an area of prime game viewing, home to the Big Five as well as the famous and elusive White Lions. The lodge is one of the few commercial lodges in the area which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park. There are eight luxury suites overlooking the dam with large beds, a sitting area with its own fireplace, a bathroom with shower and separate bathtub and a private deck. Two of the eight rooms are special honeymoon suites with four poster beds.
