We stayed at Monwana at the end of May 2013. We've visited several safari accommodations in South Africa and Monwana is up there with the best. Mich and Charel looked after us superbly; food was excellent, plentiful and homely, especially in view of the location, which is deep into the veld. Accommodation offered top home comforts (including air con, mosquito nets, large shower and bath with great views, wifi and a strong mobile phone signal). The location was wonderful being next to a water hole and river bed. There was plenty of wildlife to watch in between game drives including some harmless entries into the camp itself!! Eating around the open fire was very special (particulary when you are spoiled with hot water bottles and knee blankets for the cooler nights!). It is a small and intimate 'camp'. Our time had a variety of international guests, which added to the experience. Hello to those in Alberta, New York and Seattle! You will not go wrong at Monwana.

- Monwana Game Lodge is nestled deep in the African bush, at the Thornybush Private Nature Reserve - adjacent to the Kruger National Park. Monwana is a small, intimate lodge offering all the comforts you'd expect from a 4-star luxury safari lodge, while still being down-to-earth and comfortable. 2 Family suites at this lodge make it ideal for anyone traveling with children. Morning and evening game drives through the reserve are hosted by professional trackers and game rangers. They will do their best to make sure you see as much as you can on your stay, offering interesting information about the fauna and flora you encounter, to enhance your experience. There are no fences between the Thornybush Reserve and the Kruger National Park, so animals have free range around the whole region, making it perfect for the Big 5 and a whole range of other animals. ... more less
