We stayed at Monate for a wedding. We had a wonderful stay, from the game drives to the food to the different restuarant set-ups, everything was amazing. The staff and rangers are very helpful and friendly. They even provided us with a camping cot for our 6 month old baby. Can't wait to visit again!
