THE PULSE OF AFRICA WILL DRIVE YOUR ANCIENT INSTINCTS TO FADE OUT THE BUZZ OF THE CITY WHILE YOUR SOUL CONNECTS ONCE MORE WITH YOUR ANCESTRAL CLAIM TO YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE IN THE WILD.
Our almost 3 000 hectare private reserve is located in a malaria-free area. It is extremely diverse with wide open plains, typical bushveld areas and fascinating rocky outcrops, caves and koppies. Home to buffalo, giraffe, hippopotamus, zebra, a large variety of antelope, and close to 50% of the bird species found in South Africa.
Our professional and enthusiastic rangers keep guests intrigued during early morning and late afternoon game drives, exploring the various habitats and their many inhabitants.
GUIDED GAME DRIVES
R350 PER PERSON
TWO OPPORTUNITIES ARE OFFERED DAILY FOR GUIDED GAME DRIVES WITH OUR EXPERIENCED RANGERS, ONE EARLY MORNINGS AND ONE IN THE AFTERNOONS.
Start your day bright and early with a morning game drive, while the coolness of the night still lingers. Enjoy a warm cup of coffee from one of our unique vantage points and soak in the freshness of the new day. Keen birdwatchers especially enjoy the bushveld mornings. While we track down the vast range of wildlife found on Monate Game Reserve, you’re sure to spot some of the diverse populations of birds that occur on our reserve.
Every evening closes down with a relaxing sundowner somewhere on our beautiful reserve. The evenings are best known for game viewing as most of the animals start making their way to a water source to quench their thirst after a warm African day. The animal activity during this time of day, increases your chances of spotting animals interacting with each other.
R300 PER PERSON
FOR THE MORE ACTIVE AND BRAVE GUESTS, WE OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY TO SWAP YOUR GAME DRIVE FOR A GAME WALK WITH ONE OF OUR RANGERS.
One of our experienced field guides will take you into the bush with the vehicles, and then explore the area on foot, pointing out fauna, insects and other interesting finds you often miss from the back of the vehicle. You might even cross paths with some of the bigger game such as antelope, giraffes or zebra, but your guide will always ensure your safety as well as that of the animal.
We strive to bring our visitors closer to nature, as nature intended. We look forward to sharing our wonderful piece of heaven with you.

GAME BREEDING PROJECT
BREEDING OUR LEGACY - GAME BREEDING TO CONSERVE OUR ANIMALS
With the change of ownership of Monate Game Lodge, a segment of the reserve became part of a game breeding project on the neighbouring farm. The goal of the project is to preserve our heritage by investing in species that run the risk of extinction. Exotic Game Breeding is part of Monate’s legacy. Buffalo, Golden Gnu, Golden Oryx, Sable and Roan Antelope are some of the species that also form part of our neighbouring farm’s extensive game breeding project.
Please visit www.thithombo.co.za should you be interested in learning more about the project.
