The place was tranquil and a wonderful getaway from everyday life. All staff members were friendly and helpful and went the extra mile to accommodate our needs. The experience was worth every cent.

We truly enjoyed our 'too short' stay at Monate. The rooms, the food, the service and the game drive were all to our satisfaction and very much affordable.

We were positively surprised about the nice gardens and surroundings at Monate Lodge and can definitely recommend the Lodge to everybody, especially to families with children. The stuff was very friendly and fulfilled even all the special requests from our side regarding our little son (i.e. a shorter game drive only for us) what made our stay relaxing and memorable. The whole Lodge is child friendly but also perfect for groups due to the beach volley ball course, mini golf course, gym, trampolins and pool areas, all of them well maintained. Thanks a lot.
