This was a destination booked for me by a friend, who strongly recommended it and I can see why! The whole stay from start to finish was fantastic.
Emma and Jacques were fantastic and it was amazing the way they worked so well together and had everything covered all of the time! It was my first safari but my girlfriend has been on several and neither of us could think of anything but total compliments.
The reserve itself is brilliant with very comfortable rooms and very spacious bathrooms. The food is out of this world and the menus that were put together were great. Nothing is ever too much trouble for any of the staff at Monwana. The only problem was the food was so good you just couldn't stop yourself eating everything that was put in front of you!!
The game drives were ace. Although everyone wants to see the big 5, of which we saw 4, Jacques and Morris (the tracker) would point out and explain any of the wildlife that there was which was great to learn about, no matter how big or small, rare or common they were.
Huge compliments to all the staff at the lodge and thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. Hopefully see them all again soon!!
