Everything about the place was great. Emma and Jacques were the perfect hosts who took a genuine interest in our well being. Jacques is passionate about the wildlife and was extremely kind to our 4 children taking plenty of time to answer the hundreds of questions he was bombarded with ! The food was amazing and the lodge's layout around a waterhole fantastic. Everybody from Sidney the tracker, to Tyron a host and Niklas our barman made us feel so at home. Game sightings were plentiful including multiple big 5.
Very good sightings on all drives. Lovely well appointed game lodge with its own water hole. Over abundant food! Emma and Jacque make for a great lodge management team. Nothing was too much trouble. Stayed 3 nights which was ideal.
Emma & Jacques made us feel very welcome, just like part of the family! Food was great with plenty of variety Room was lovely, overlooking the waterhole. Jacques knows so much about everything. Jacques & Morris(tracker) are a great team,they found so many animals and we have loads of photos and amazing memories.
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 will recommend this vacation to everyone! Morris constantly shocked and amazed us when we would be driving at night down a bumpy road, and he would spot a tiny gecko in this giant bush. Our jaws were constantly dropped on these amazing games drives.After only three days of being at Monwana, it was extremely hard to leave because it felt like home! You better believe that I am coming back to Monwana and bringing more people so they to can share the experience.
What can I say!! This place was amazing!! We traveled with a group of 6 and we pretty much had the place to ourselves with a great view of the watering hole. This was the best experience I have ever had and I would def. do it again as well as recommend this place to others!! Our Ranger and Tracker were the best!! They were able to track whatever we wanted to see and had great knowledge for us about the animals!! The food, the hospitality was fantastic as well!! Everyone on the staff was just the best, friendly, personal, helpful and so accommodating. This place truly felt like home!!! Just so much I could write but to sum it all up everything was just absolutely superb!! Wish I could do it all over again!!
