Monwana Game Lodge
is located in the Thornybush Reserve
in the Kruger Private Reserves
area in the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated in the more busy northern part of the reserve,Monwana Game Lodge is a smaller facility with intimate public areas with a very modest swimming pool and a deck providing a limited views out over a sand river. Guest accommodation is in just four substantial chalets, two of which are duplex family units. The hosting is good and the prices are very keen.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari, plus extensive spa facilities over at Thornybush Game Lodge
. Wildlife is reliable year round.
The main potential downside is that the lodge is rather old-fashioned and in parts feels rather dated. There is the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
Thornybush a is small fenced reserve which contains a relatively high density of camps and vehicles. We find that the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, although that is true of almost all of Kruger.
