I arranged a weekend trip with some of my Indian colleagues to Monate recently. With Monate already being my most favourite bush destination, my companions truly experienced an unforgettable life experience.

Monate is really an amazing place for a wedding venue.

We were there for the Prinsloo wedding and what a wonderful experience the entire weekend was!! Enjoyed every second of it. The staff were superb, the facilities excellent and the game drives extremely enjoyable. The wedding itself was conducted in the middle of the bush and what a spectacular occasion it was! A lot of hard work went into arranging...
