Amazing safari lodge!
We had a fantastic stay at Monwana game lodge. Nikki was a great host and Werner and Morris were a fantastic duo as ranger and tracker. Would highly recommend this truly memorable place to anyone and the small intimate nature of the lodge makes it even more special.

Ein außergewöhnliches Erlebnis in einem luxuriösen Anwesen in einer privaten Game Lodge. V.a. das Personal ist sehr freundlich und kompetent und macht den Aufenthalt einzigartig! Vielen Dank an Nikki, Werner, Maurice & Co. für 3 großartige Tage und tolle Erlebnisse mit den Tieren Afrikas.
