Lovely swimming pool and a very peaceful atmosphere. The staff was friendly and helpful I will definitely return again."

Lovely lodge - retains the personal touch.
"Unlike many game lodges, Monateng give a personal experience. Nice food, intimate environment. They have a very nice balance between comfortable / up market and rustic. We were there for a birthday weekend with family and they went to a special effort to plan a bush dinner as well as a special venue for the second night's dinner. There was a problem with our booking due to renovations but they sorted it out amazingly well and ensured we had a fabulous weekend. The staff is all well trained and friendly as well."

Hendrick Ludick
Mr Hendrick Ludick (78) has been visiting Monateng Safari Lodge at least 3 times a year for the last couple of years. He and his wife were both regular guests, but unfortunately his wife passed away last year. Mr Ludick still kept visiting our resort.

On 10 April 2014 (on his 20th visit to Monateng) he informed our Resort Manager, Johan Dreyer, that due to his age and the fact that he cannot drive long distances by himself anymore, this will most probably be the last time that he will visit our Resort.

The staff and Management handed Mr Ludick a small gift to remind him of Monateng.

We wish Mr Ludick all the best for the years ahead – he will be missed.

"It was my birthday on Sunday 26 May 2013, whereby I turned 62 years old. We are QVC-members and through them we win a weekend (Presentation 2012). We kept it for as long to try to use it May 2013. After a good search the offices of QVC gave us our choice – MONATENG Chalets in the Northern Province. My husband and myself stayed from Friday afternoon till Monday morning 04:00 and went to work from there – only an hours drive. What a weekend and what a beautiful place this MONATENG is! A beautiful well-equipped chalet, well-looked after gardens and swimming pool area. Animals like the Eland and Nyala were part of the surroundings. An Ostrich, friendly house cats, beautiful birds, the hippos, the howl of the jackals at dusk and night time. For my birthday we booked at the Restaurant and what a lovely 3-course meal for R99,50 coffee included. We could take a walk everyday without fear, what a pleasure! Thank you Monateng, we will surely get back to you."
