Discover the gem of the bushveld… Monate Game Lodge is an elegant and peaceful breakaway retreat where guests can enjoy the tranquility of the bush whilst being treated like royalty. Being only 2 hours from OR Tambo and a malaria-free location makes us ideal for the perfect weekend or corporate getaway.

Nestled in manicured gardens, the rustic Monate family suites and rooms offer an opportunity to indulge in a peaceful and relaxing environment. With all the amenities & necessities at one’s reach, each air-conditioned room also has its own spacious full en-suite bathroom.

Ideal for honeymooners and executives are our distinct Hampton and Rushton Tented Suites, decorated in a sophisticated blend of both Chinese and Colonial antiques, each with open access to a private sundeck and pool, oozing complete luxury in an environment where pampering and attention to detail is absolute.

At Monate our unsurpassed dining experience is designed to tantalize your taste buds, specializing from venison to vegetarian dishes, served in different settings, such as our unique natural cave, in the open bush or around the lodge camp fire. All delicious and carefully prepared meals will make guests feel right at home.

Monate’s private game reserve is set in 1839 hectares of bush, open plains and a variety of interesting koppies – home to rhino, buffalo, hippo, crocodiles, giraffes, zebra, wildebeest, brown hyena and a variety of antelope. Professional guides keep guests intrigued during early morning & afternoon game drives. We are proud to be part of a cheetah rehabilitation project in conjunction with De Wildt.

Choices are endless… Horse trails are extremely popular and thoroughly enjoyed by beginners and experienced riders alike. Frolic on the trampolines or play a round of swing ball. We are excited to introduce our new adventurous putt-putt course. For the more energetic there’s the volley ball court, our fully equipped gym or perhaps clay pigeon shooting! Naturally the Jacuzzi & 2 swimming pools are ideal for those who choose to embark on total relaxation!

Conference delegates can enjoy the tranquility of the bush whilst conducting business in a conducive atmosphere. Additional facilities include an airstrip and helipads, under cover parking, complimentary tea / coffee station in our lounge accompanied by DSTV on our large screen TV and fully licensed bar.
