My brother and his fiancé booked a family weekend away together with myself, my husband , my mom and dad to spend some quality family time together. I have two children aged 27 months and 6 weeks. Due to separation issues my two year old sleeps with me and my 6 week old in a cot. Hence we booked a... 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

What a great experience we had! Once we arrived on Friday afternoon until leaving on Sunday… The staff were extremely friendly and the unit was super clean & tidy. Thanks for a relaxing weekend. We will definitely return!

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

Visited the lodge during peak summer. The weather was very hot which meant the insects, especially flies, were invading the chalet in full force. Take lots of bug spray. Only the main dining and lounge area was air conditioned, the rooms were very stuffy. The cleaning services left a lot the be desired, the dishes all had bits of food... More

We just got back having spent a long weekend here with some friends. Gold Crown implies 5 Star accommodation which it is not. It is however very comfortable and has everything you need for a weekend. There was more than enough room in our chalet for 4 adults which had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Our chalet was fully serviced... More

Not Gold Crown status & very limited walking area basically just around the chalets. Pity that they don't have any hot tubs & spa's in a main facility to relax & enjoy oneself in. The restaurant is not up to standard & needs to put more choices on their menu. A radio would also be nice to have for a... More

Nice, clean and comfortable accommodation with good braai facilities and with lots of amenities for younger people. However, no self drive game viewing is allowed and you have to pay for every game drive organised by the lodge itself. There is very little space for walking and then also only in the vicinity of the chalets and not in the... More
