    Hi there jazzy111, thank-you for posting this review. What a special experience for you and especially for your teenagers to have. Educating future generations on our incredible wildlife is such a privilege, so thank-you for bringing them along!

    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..
