We fell in love with Africa over twenty years ago when we first invested in Monwana Game Lodge. Little did we know that our love affair would evolve into something much, much deeper over the decades to follow. To us Monwana is so much more than a lodge. It’s Africa personified. It’s an extension of the earth. It’s a sensory journey. It’s a life-changing experience. It’s a family of people. It’s a promise. It’s a home. Our wish is that you, too, get to experience this, and that you will be as enchanted and enriched as we have been…
We have had the privilege to travel extensively, and have stayed in some of the world’s most beautiful destinations and hotels. We’ve experienced first-hand the many layers of an exceptional hospitality experience, from linen to service to fine wine. We know what really matters in a holiday, and what the promise of luxury really means.
Our decision to relaunch our own re-imagined Monwana is essentially the best of our lives’ experiences collected over two decades, and brought to life in our favourite place on earth.
This is our home to body, mind and soul.
We’d love it if you would make our home your own.
We are part of the Greater Kruger National Park, a natural ecosystem of almost 2 million hectares with some of the most exciting wildlife viewing on earth. Here the symbiotic partnership between tourism and conservation has created a spectacular wilderness where animals have learned over time that they are safe and respected. In return, we are invited into their sacred kingdom. Enjoy an unhurried safari in the safe hands of our expert guides and trackers.
The safari is as much about the many moments between game drives as it is about the hours spent adventuring in the wild. Our experiences have been designed around the senses, to bring you pleasure and joy. From fine food and beautiful wine in imaginative romantic settings, to therapeutic spa treatments at the hands of professional therapists – each of your Monwana experiences will be tailored around you.

My soul yearns for home
My soul yearns for a place it intrinsically knows to be home. A place of peace, where all things are balanced and pure. A place of astounding natural beauty. A place of safety. A place of comfort. A place where wealth is an essence and not a currency. A place of community. A place of love. A place where I am part of something so much bigger than me, and where I am never alone. There is such a place… It’s called Monwana.
