Amazing place for a backpackers and for a small price ! You have a beautiful way to delimit tents and room with palmtrees and others trees. Also, there are 2 swimming pools. You can use the outside kitchen which was clean and close by the pool. Our room (not a tent) had a wardrobe, a big size bed, two nightstands... More

We stayed in a tent with a double bed. The bed was remade everyday and the bathrooms and kitchen were always clean. As a clean freak, i really appreciated this. However, what we most enjoyed were the activities offered by the hostel, like the full day safari in imfolozi and the walking tour in isimangaliso. Our guide Stefan accompanied us... More

Great place to feel in the jungle without actually going to jungle. Great bed, shower, breakfast. Wifi works well. 2 nights in the city is more than enough. Avoid the night safari, is cold and not much to see. Go gor the hippo ride, just amazing Reserve a few hours to go in the whale watch

We stayed at Monzi Safaris located at the main street of Saint Lucia. At first it is a bit strange, sitting in your real life safari tent in this urban setting but the care-taking staff, swimmingpool and the well equiped self catering kitchen made it a comfortable stay. All necessary shops and restaurants are a stone throw away from this... More

Nice concept: camping with good size tents, real big beds , a real bathroom and a shared kitchen. Staff were very helpfull, they even cleaned up after guests in the kitchen area. Location very good, supermarket close by, several good restaurants in the same street. Only point of critisism: the staf direct all newcomers to the boat ski club for... More

Thank you for the good review. I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at the restaurant. The reason why staff direct guest there is than normally the food is quite good but more than that it has a really great view on the estuary. More

The structure and service were wonderful. We hope to return soon and better enjoy the facilities they offer. Is tempting to stay in everywhere, so beautiful and lovely is this place. We stayed two nights in a super comfortable tent. First time I see room service in a tent. The bad part is due to the noise, every talk that... More

Certainly one of the cheapest accommodation in St Lucia. It's well-located (main street of the town). The staff was nice and helpful. The tents and the common areas are very comfortable and well-equipped (swimming-pool, sofas, TV, BBQ, fridges,...). The only negative thing was the hot water outage one morning but we survived...

We stayed or a night in Monzi Safaris Tented Camp. Camping in a luxury tent with shower and toilet in the middle of town. Our kids loved it and the main beds were great. Swimming pool was a nice extra for our kids although in wintertime it is rather cold. Our two kids slept on a converted couch and that... More

What a beautiful tropical surprise in the middle of the village. A very complete "glamping" tent is fully furnished ready for you. It lacks really nothing. An extensive (optional) breakfast is prepared for you by a friendly lady with assistants. At Monzi Safaris they do everything to give you a carefree time and enjoy your holiday. Including the possibility exists... More
