    Hi there -- we are looking to visit Monwama/ Kruger National Park at New Year's for our honeymoon. We have been told by some tour guides that Kruger is horribly overcrowded at this time of year and that malaria is an issue. Does that feedback ring true for you? If January isn't an option, we could push our trip back to February or March. Is it better to visit then? Thank you, John

    Hi John, Monwana Game Lodge is in a private reserve and no drives are permitted unless you're staying at one of the Thornybush lodges i.e we do not allow day visitors... We are considered to be in a malaria low risk region..

    Are safari tours and food included in this price? Is the price per person?
