Monwana Game Lodge


Capture the ever-changing moods of the wilderness at Monwana Lodge. Dew clinging to spider webs as dawn creeps across the sky. The swaying gold-tipped grass disturbed by the pride on the move. Through the dusty afternoon haze, the matriarch brings her herd down to the waterhole for a drink; this truly is a photographer’s paradise.

Masterfully located within the Thornybush Nature Reserve, Monwana Lodge brings an African experience at its most authentic and rewarding display. Glowing firelight as guests socialize under a breathtaking carpet of stars. The candlelit intimacy of a private viewing deck, unpretentious honest and personalized service combined with world-class cuisine and daily game drives led by an experienced passionate team all allow for easy access to the spectacular theatre of the African bush.

With extensive consideration given to enhancing experiences relished by countless former and returning guests, the ultimate decision favoured the commencement of an all-encompassing rebuild.

The newly designed Monwana Lodge and Team look forward to welcoming guests back in August 2022.  The rebuild will allow for a modern new approach to luxurious accommodation and will feature the following new amenities. 

The lodge will now encompass eight luxury accommodation offerings, each with their own private viewing deck plunge pool and outdoor shower.  Guests will be spoilt for choice with the following suites available:

  • Two Luxury Suites each accommodating two adults
  • Two Family Suites, featuring main en-suite bedroom and additional twin bedroom and bathroom for kids.  Each Suite accommodating two adults and 2 children.
  • Two Presidential Suites, each with an en-suite bedroom and separate lounge area.  Each Suite accommodating 2 adults.
