Our stay at Mongena was lovely, however the room that we had was right by the entrance/reception which meant it was very noisy. There were some big groups while we there so noise levels were really loud . The service at Kingfisher restaurant can also be improved. The waiters themselves were lovely but the service was rather slow. We loved that the Zebras and Nyalas walked freely through the Lodge! Overall we had great time and would recommend Mongena to friends. We look forward to our next visit.

The curtains were closed but the...

Staying at Mongena was such a pleasurable experience. The staff were always ready and willing to help, and always greeted us with friendly smiles. The food was incredible. Thank you for a brilliant stay.

Well maintained lodge, all the staff except the reception staff were very friendly. Game drive was a little disappointing, very few animals located, seems as if their main attraction is 2 elephants, a little misleading to claim that they have the big 5 when in fact the whole Dineokeng possible has the big 5 but not specifically in Mongena.
