Mowana Game Lodge

Monwana Game Lodge occupies its own space in the Thornybush Game Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger ecosystem, where a short journey from the airport provides your first introduction to safari. It is home to the famed ‘Big 5’ (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo), and countless other beautiful creatures in their natural habitats. The reserve has many species of large mammals and is well-known for the quality and quantity of its sightings of Africa’s most elusive cat – the leopard. Being part of a private 14,000-hectare reserve means that guests enjoy personal, uncrowded, unrushed, and close contact sightings. The lodge also overlooks an active wildlife waterhole where you can observe a stream of wildlife coming to drink from the comfort of the wooden deck. As your senses reawaken with this immersion in nature, enhance your wellbeing with a treatment at the world-class spa or workout in the fully equipped gym.

Head out each day at sunrise and again in the late afternoon, in the company of expert field guides and trackers in search of the famed ‘Big 5’ and countless many species of large mammals.

Bush Walks
Being on foot is an altogether different experience of the wild that energizes the senses. Hear the stones beneath your feet, feel the wild grass against your skin, smell the scent of rain in the air, taste the leaves of medicinal plants and appreciate the full scale of nature around you.

During evening game drives or bush dinners (weather permitting), the field guides will share insights into the skies.
