Our stay was very short, but still very enjoyable! Excellent food and hospitality, along with an excellent game drive with a great tracker and ranger. Will keep on my list of places to visit again - the experience was very personal.

This was one of the best experiences of my life. I went with family and friends and the experiences we had were all thanks to the amazing staff at Monwana. Jaques and Emma are some of the most caring and loving people I have ever met. They truly wanted to make us have a very personal and amazing experience! I... More

We recently visited with friends - a group of 9 of us, so we had the entire lodge to ourselves. It was perfect, really. The facility is lovely. The staff the same. Service was impeccable. And the value for the money was a special surprise. My husband and I have traveled the world together, and have rarely come upon this... More

What a wonderful life experience! I must admit...I joined my family for this journey, but didn't officially have this on my "bucke list". Since this trip, I'm strongly considering how I can return with others! The lodging was such a nice intimate setting for our group of 9, with highly appointed suites, and most as their own building nestled along... More

This is a long overdue review, we stayed there sept 2012. We stayed at Monwana for 3 nights during our honeymoon and all I can say is wow! The cabin was incredible. Comfortable and luxurious. The service provided from the food to the safari tours was more then we could've hoped for. On the last night as it was out... More

Here's the short version of my review: don't hesitate to book a stay at Monwana. Elegantly decorated, spacious accommodations. Food so good it'll make you swoon. Abundant wildlife on AM & PM game drives - they know the Thornybush animal population so well that the ranger asked which animals we'd like to see and then drove us right to them.... More

What an amazing trip! My husband and our long time traveling companion friends had checked off everything on our bucket list. This trip was the last one of the "Big 5!" Quite fitting, don't you say? It was by far #1 of all our trips. Now let's talk about Monwana since this is a trip advisor review. The lodge was... More

This is the best place with the best service we have come across. Our hostess Monica, Chewie the Ranger and Sidney, our tracker (we called him our Bate) did a great job! Hospitality, service, food, the wildlife and our lodge were astonishing. Thank you all at Monwana! Harro, Niqui and Gwennie

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Monwana as part of a 10 day trip to South Africa. This place far exceeded our expectations. This is a 5 star lodge at 4 star prices! Wonderful staff, beautiful lodging and delicious food. Everything from the moment we arrived was first class

Monwana Game Lodge is the best place to stay for your African adventure. Chewie and Monica welcomed us like long lost family. They couldn't have done more to make our stay the most memorable experience we could have ever imagined. Sydney, our Tracker was also very friendly and fun, as well as finding the big 5, on several occasions during... More
