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. This got me quite agitated because in the first place I do not have a child under 12, and I was not prepared to go... More

We took up a friend's Vacation Club offer for a weekend at Monateng. We arrived on a Friday and the check-in took a bit of time, which was not pleasant for tired travellers. We woke up to the sound of birds singing every day and it is a great place for birdwatchers. One precocious weaver came right up to the... More

We arrived Monateng Safari Lodge through a vacation club. Our checking in was effortless at the entrance. We were greeted with an environment that was serene, cool, calm and quiet as we drive towards our accommodation. The chalet reserved for us was clean and spacious. However, the heaters in the rooms were very small. The kitchen, though small, was adequate... More

There is not enough activities for the children. Some sick human decided to use the swimming pool as a toilet, on Saturday & Sunday! Absolutely revolting! The games room for the children was stuffy and all the games you need to pay for! The game drive is not great, it better to go to your zoo because the game is... More
