The tent was not swept or dusted, had to chase out frogs and clean their droplings, the showerhead spraying everything and everywhere but your body and grass not cut around the tent. No cupboard or table to place/store your plates, glasses, cups and cutlery. Being woken at daylight by the 100's or 1000's of chickens at the nearby chicken farm...

Everything that were offered was awesome, we loved the accommodation and the entertainment on offer. We visited Monateng over the Christmass week. The only drawback was the hordes of flies around. That is the only thing that is preventing me from returning to this resort.

We booked a chalet here for the New Year week...the booking in was seamless...the grounds are immaculate exuding a true bush feel...the chalets are close enough but far enough from the busy pool area...an easy walk gets you there...the Nyala roam the grounds freely and are almost tame. My bugbear was the incessant fly problem particularly at the chalet...we had...

A very easy drive from Johannesburg, comfortable accommodation. Game drive was enjoyable. Crocodile tour was very long and tedious and in Afrikaans, the person conducting the tour seemed more intent on soliciting money from the attendees which was obvious and disappointing. Take your own food for self catering. Restaurant range very limited. The buffet breakfast was cold and a huge...

Excellent resort, close to Pretoria, clean and comfortable inside with all needs seen to. Chalets are well-stocked for visitors, we even had ice waiting in our freezer. Staff were amazing in every way. Animals were right up close walking around the chalets.

My friends and I visited Monateng for a weekend and really enjoyed the relaxed environment. The chalets were very clean and spacious. The breakfast was a bit disappointing as there wasn't much choose from and we met quite a few dirty plates. On the up side their pizza was amazing.

The self catering chalets we stayed in were clean and so spacious. Exactly what you would expect in the bush but also close to the town. The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. We also visited the croc farm and were amazed at the amount of crocs there. I really enjoyed the Braai night as the staff made us feel so welcomed...

Well equipped self catering units. Very spacious and comfortable. Situated not so far from Pretoria but offering the real bush and safari experience together with many more attractions and activities. I would go again anytime:)

First time here was my anniversary in 2015. This year was for my son's 21st. It's become our favourite holiday destination. Friendly staff (everyone) , clean facilities and chalets, amazing prices for extras, and terrific entertainment daily. Why go anywhere else??
