Monateng Lodge is the perfect place for the whole family! On arrival three nyalas were grazing in front of our chalet! My grandchildren were delighted! The resort provides a pleasant atmosphere with overall cleanness and excellent maintenance. Excellent hospitality and efficient checking in and out. Excellent security measures; resort facilities and out - sourced facilities. An overall wonderful holiday experience!!

Let's be clear, the accommodation and facilities were reasonable. However on the Friday night I got cold and requested extra blankets on Saturday but was told that the "housekeeper" did not think it necessary and none would be forthcoming. Booking out I paid R25 for a broken glass, a charge was processed against my credit card two days later for... More

This turned out to be a very pleasant trip. Clean, peaceful and relaxing. Staff were very friendly and helpful and were on duty 7 days. The restaurant was being renovated, but we could still order hot dogs, burgers, pizzas and sandwiches. The bar was well stocked. We went on a crocodile tour, this was the hi-light of my stay. It...

We went on a game drive and saw lots of animals and a very pleasant game ranger.The children enjoyed the animals roaming around the chalet during the day. Lovely swimming pool and a very... More

We had visited this place six years earlier and we were impressed with the improvements and additions, particularly with the variety of animals available. The highlight for me was watching the giraffes, one of my favourite animals. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. It was good that they had made wifi available since our last visit, albeit only in the... More

Unlike many game lodges, Monateng give a personal experience. Nice food, intimate environment. They have a very nice balance between comfortable/upmarket and rustic. We were there for a birthday weekend with family and they went to a special effort to plan a bush dinner as well as a special venue for the second night's dinner. There was a problem with... More

I used my points for booking this holiday. Prior to the holiday I was told that although this was a six sleeper, this meant four (4) adults and 2 children under the age of 12.
