Mongolia park is a lovely park to visit and have your Sunday lunch at. The food is good and the venue is delightful.

We stayed at the Herberta lodge at this game Reserve. The rooms were very spacious and we had the lodge to ourselves. It included a huge lounge beautifully decorated with comfortable sofas and chairs. We had kudos grazing outside our window, warthogs a little further out and birds everywhere. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast in the restaurant which overlooks... More

Excellent opportunity to see game from a safari jeep. The guides were very knowledgable and brought a great midway snack complete with chilled wine! The hippo was a thrill and the location of the restaurant right on the hippo pool provided a good meal at the end of the ride. Next visit we intend to spend the night in accommodation... More

The ranger driving was excellent. However, it was raining and cold and no blankets were on the vehicle. We didn't realise there were no rhinos. The service in reception was poor. There were a couple of employees who engaged us in conversation, who obviously knew very little on their subject, one was extremely scruffy, I didn't realise he was an... More

I cannot begin to describe the level of service of Mpongo Park Staff. The stress of worrying are completely taken away from you. Staff is generally alert, professional, smiling and assertive. They are extremely puntual, i must add. The planners ensure that everything goes extremely smooth. There is so much to say, in the least, our guests were very entertained... More

You can drive with your own car through the parc. We saw a lot of Giraffes and Zebras. You need a off road car and make sure you used the restroom before.

Mpongo is a world of its own...peace and tranquility with outstanding hospitality and unbelievable cuisine. I highly recommend Mpongo for a family vacation, a romantic holiday, a conference, a wedding, a party or just a day visit. It is most refreshing to be around such a beautiful environment with staff with undeniable passion. A definite must see

Enjoyed the ride. Saw many different types of animals including a pack of giraffes very very close. Sad to know a Rhino was poached. We did not found the elephants but did see the Hipo while having dessert at the restaurant afterward. Service and dessert were good. Nice way to see the African wildlife without spending a ton of money.

Our two year old son loved the game drive through Mpongo. It's small and safe enough to accommodate a family with a small child.
