Under new ownership
Revamp & Renovation in progress until our re-opening
on 1 Dec 2014.
Monate Lodge is nestled in manicured gardens on a 1839 hectare private reserve in the Limpopo province within easy reach of the Gauteng area. This malaria-free area is beautiful in its diversity, ranging from open plains to typical bushveld and interesting rocky outcrops, caves and koppies. It is home to 3 of the Big Five, namely Rhino, Buffalo and Leopard. The Monate Reserve boasts a healthy population of giraffe, hippopotamus, zebra, a large variety of antelope, close to 50% of the bird species found in South Africa and many more.
We are very proud of our cheetah re-wilding program in partnership with The Endangered Wildlife Trust. This is an exceptionally necessary program as cheetahs are considered endangered and there are said to be less than 1,000 cheetahs in South Africa. Monate aims to re-wild young and orphaned cheetahs so as to reintroduce them back into the wild.
Our guests at Monate Lodge are accommodated in rustic, free standing family suites or rooms at the main lodge or elite luxury tented suites which are within walking distance from the main lodge and dining areas.
Monate Lodge is ideal for a weekend escape or corporate getaway as it is situated just 2 hours from OR Tambo International Airport in a malaria-free location.
Spoil yourself and your loved ones in our stunning wildlife sanctuary and leave feeling relaxed and replenished!
