              The whole trip was perfect from start to end. Nothing was too much trouble fir anyone. Restaurant staff great, reception staff very helpful and charming. William tracked our animals and Matt answered all of our questions, and we had many. Loved the free roaming zebra monkeys and deer around our lodge. Will be coming back

              Our family of four spent a fantastic two nights at Mongena in December. So close to Pretoria yet we felt like we were in the wilderness. Beautiful Bush, and great sightings of relaxed animals. We”ll definitely be back.

              Our stay at Mongena was lovely, however the room that we had was right by the entrance/reception which meant it was very noisy. There were some big groups while we there so noise levels were really loud . The service at Kingfisher restaurant can also be improved. The waiters themselves were lovely but the service was rather slow. We loved that the Zebras and Nyalas walked freely through the Lodge! Overall we had great time and would recommend Mongena to friends. We look forward to our next visit.

              The food at the restaurant was great, the service was sometimes a little slow but the manager was very attentive. The room was lovely and had a great view, we stayed in the honeymoon suite. Now for the disappointments:1. There was no bell boy, or even a guide to take us to the room. We did get lost and had to ask around.2. There was nothing extra in the honeymoon suite. I mean like, a small bottle of champagne or a fruit plate. 3. The room is above the public toilets for the restaurant. This meant that when someone went to the toilet they walked past our room. The curtains were closed but the...
