Mankele was established in 2007 by Greg Anderson, Geoffrey Anderson & Mark Meyer. Mankele’s main aim is to be a safe outdoor environment with a variety of activities and accommodation options for the whole family to enjoy.
Mankele is fast becoming South Africa’s favorite place to mountain bike.
Situated in the heart of Mpumalanga at the foot of the escarpment. With beautiful surroundings of tropical forests, open grass lands, rivers, dams, ravines, mountains and breath taking views.
There is something for everyone here.
Mankele’s world class trails has become the training playground for SA’s top riders. With a number of top events held at Mankele, the trails are always kept in race condition.
The adrenaline pumping trails have an excellent balance: from lung bursting climbs, disc burning descents, nail biting north shore, big drops, river crossings and fast, smooth single track. We have something here for everyone, no matter what riding skill, fitness level or age.
All trails are marked out using an easy to follow colour coded system, with points of interest along the way and warning signs for any technical or heart in your throat obtacles, many of these have an atrenative and less intimidating “chicken out” detour around them.
