Why Monwana Lodge?

Situated in a quiet corner in the renowned Thornybush Game Reserve, Monwana Lodge offers wildlife encounters that will take your breath away.

Experience This area is home to a variety of animals, including the Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo & rhino – as well other game like zebra, impala, giraffe, cheetah & many bird species.

The lodge overlooks a game-packed waterhole - one of the biggest drawcards in the area - so exciting game viewing opportunities can be enjoyed from the comfort of the viewing deck.

Stay Small & intimate, Monwana Lodge only has 3 standard suites (2 of these are inter-leading), 1 honeymoon suite & 1 two-bedroom family suite.

All suites are equipped with an en-suite bathroom & patio. The honeymoon suite is slightly larger than the standard suites & is ideally situated with privacy in mind. The family suite is ideal for families travelling with young children. The 2 bedrooms are separated by a passageway & the suite offers a lovely wrap-around deck for ideal game viewing.

Four of the five suites boast magnificent views over an active waterhole.

The main lodge boasts a lounge, dining room, open-air boma & large viewing deck which extends onto the Monwana River. The gazebo with comfortable chairs overlooking the waterhole is the perfect place to kick off your shoes & relax while watching animals quench their thirst.

Activities Daily activities include a morning & afternoon game drive as well as guided bush walks.

After a sundowner stop in the bush, the night drive includes looking for nocturnal animals with a spotlight. Perhaps you will see jackal, cheetah, spring hare & the forever jumping bush baby?

Guests can also enjoy relaxing treatments from the Mobile Amani Spa or book a scenic hot air balloon flight over the Blyde River at an additional cost. Community village visits can also be arranged.
