Not much I can add to the great reviews below, other than to echo what an amazing place Monwana is. Neill and Christie who were our ranger and hostess were amazing, not just great hosts, but people who we truly enjoyed spending time with. Neill's game drives with the excellent Morris as tracker were packed with sightings, and his knowledge and appreciation for these animals was really great, he's also good at keeping the mood light and getting everyone to enjoy themselves. After the drives I really enjoyed recapping the day with him over a drink at the lodge, just a very genuine person. Christie may possibly be the nicest person we've ever met. She was on top of everything and ran a flawless program at the lodge for us, from meals to drinks on arrival to a special romantic treat for my wife and I, she was amazing, as were the rest of the staff. The lodge itself is great, accommodations are comfortable and luxurious, and don't underestimate the value of the waterhole nearby, the number of animals it attracts is incredible, it's like getting an extra game drive from your porch!
We're already planning our return trip, thanks to all for a great stay!
