Maninghi Lodge is a short drive away from the Kinyonga Reptile Center, which provides a conservation for endangered reptile and amphibians, as well as educating visitors on the fascinating world of all manners of snakes, frogs, spiders and insects.

The Kinyonga Reptile Center is a fantastic excursion, particularly for families with kids, who will be endlessly entertained by the wide variety of the center's slithering, hairy and slimy inhabitants.  The Center also offers daily informational talks, and allows guests to handle various (non-venomous) reptiles.  For those looking for unique photo opportunities, the Center offers a Photographic Tour, which allows personal and up-close contact with the reptilian residents for unforgettable photography.

Speak to your hosts when booking, or when at Maninghi Lodge, and we'll arrange the bookings for you.
