My friends and I visited Monateng for a weekend and really enjoyed the relaxed environment. The chalets were very clean and spacious. The breakfast was a bit disappointing as there wasn't much choose from and we met quite a few dirty plates. On the up side their pizza was amazing.

The self catering chalets we stayed in were clean and so spacious. Exactly what you would expect in the bush but also close to the town. The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. We also visited the croc farm and were amazed at the amount of crocs there. I really enjoyed the Braai night as the staff made us feel so welcomed... More

Well equipped self catering units. Very spacious and comfortable. Situated not so far from Pretoria but offering the real bush and safari experience together with many more attractions and activities. I would go again anytime:)

First time here was my anniversary in 2015. This year was for my son's 21st. It's become our favourite holiday destination. Friendly staff (everyone) , clean facilities and chalets, amazing prices for extras, and terrific entertainment daily. Why go anywhere else??

You are so far from the reception(2km) you won't think of leaving the resort. Despair and apprehension turned to delight when upon arrival at the chalets the children sighted impalas and nyalas. Not to forget Zara, the Ostrich's morning biscuit visit. Chalets are cleaned daily with enough spare linen. The game drive and crocodile viewing is a must. We had... More

We booked two units for a weekend visit with my family. The place is quiet and peaceful. There are animals that are roaming around and this makes for a pleasant surprise. The only down side is that there were a lot of flies and mosquitoes during our stay. Even with all the no-fly candles, citronella and lotions the bugs were... More
