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

What a hideaway! At the doorsteps of the big cities. Quiet and clean, with animals roaming around the chalets and some saying hello at your doorstep. Chalets clean and rooms spacious. Yes, the Dstv channels are limited but who want to stay all the time in chalets watching TV? The swimming pool, bar and restaurant is great. All in all,... More

They always say different strokes for different folks...so when reviewing my stay at Monateng I have to admit that, yes there were no pool towels, yes the dstv was limited, yes there is no big five...but hey!

Relaxed and quiet. Chalets are comfortable and spacious. Dstv is very limited, no cartoon network, only the one Disney channel, kyknet, .net, few movie channels and sport channels and there is no ATM onsite so make sure you bring some cash. There are no phones in your chalet so a cellphone is important to have on hand to contact reception.IThe... More
