Some weekends away are extra special for reasons you don't expect. What impressed me most about this lodge, just 30 minute's drive out of Pretoria, was not the big 5, not the awesome 3 course dinner they served or the well appointed accommodation, but the friendliness of the staff. From the moment we walked in right to the last minute, everyone who we had contact with, was extremely friendly. Well done Mongena. Everything else was also just perfect and it is quite affordable.
