Loved it! Will recommend it to any couple who needs some me-time. If you need to re-charge, leave the kids with the grandparents and relax for a week-end, we all deserve it! Thank you once again for all the staff, you are a amazing team!! See you soon!

Perfect for a relaxing getaway, with friendly and helpful staff, beautiful rooms and dining areas. Game drives are very informative and the sunset cruise end with sundowers with hippos & crocodiles as company. Everything is well organised

We decided to try Monate Lodge during our annivesary weekend. It's a beautiful lodge. Our room was very clean and tidy, a cleaner even came to tidy up our room even when went to the after game drive. Good food at a very relaxed environment. Everyone seems to always eager to help so we never felt lost.
