We had a late check in and as we drove into the lodge we already saw a Rhino wo walked past our car and we were welcomed very friendly by Mariana! We started our weekend with a Potjiekos dinner in the cave which was absolutely lovely and the food simply the best! WOW! Then we got settled in our room.... More

We had a real nice stay at Monate with their extremely friendly and helpful staff that assisted us even with every special request. With all the renovations that took place an absolut nice place that we can definitely recommend. Minimal improvements to the buffet variety to be done, quality is fine.

Areas of improvement would be: 1. Lunch and breakfasts options 2. Please provide guests with the gate code on the booking confirmation. The area... More

We were treated like royalty and awesome service. Loved the stay, the animals and bush were truly relaxing. It was a great getaway and already recommended the stay to others for a romantic getaway.XXX

We had a truly Out of this World wedding at Monate, thanks to the beautiful location, fabulous facilities and wonderful management and staff. Pretty much every single one of our 45 guests (mostly from Europe) has told us (repeatedly in most cases) that their long weekend spent at Monate was one of the best times of their lives and probably...

My wife and I stayed in the 'luxurious' tented private room. Unfortunately about 20 builders walked through our outside shower area past the 'private' pool twice. There were many out of order stickers on switches and the phone in the room didn't work. I wanted to do clay pigeon shooting but there were no shogun shells available and to top... More

I visit quite a number of lodges and bushveld retreats yearly. How do you know when one is more special than the others? Simple, a few days after you have been...you still remember all the staff's names. This is truly a bushveld gem, and don't just take my word for it...see for yourself!!!

I was between a trip in Ethiopia and a trip in Namibia. The Monate Game Lodge was a perfect haven in which to decompress. The staff was so welcoming, and I really felt they were invested in my having a good time. The room was attractive and comfortable, and the food was outstanding. I saw more animals in one game...
