About Kalahari Monate Lodge and Camping

Enter the true nature of comfort at Kalahari Monate Lodge, where the fusion of nature and hospitality is unequalled. You are welcomed to a reserve which, in essence, is a fine example of the famous Kalahari Desert. The reserve is situated 13 km north of Upington, en route to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, and measures 5641 hectares. It derives its name from a prominent steep rocky hill close to the entrance.

Kalahari Monate Lodge consists of six luxurious self-catering, fully furnished chalets with air-conditioning, as well as camping facilities with very neat ablution blocks. There is also a swimming pool for guests to cool off in. Barbecue and camping facilities with ablution blocks can be found in the camping ground, and the lodge also offers two thatched lapas and a small kiosk.

Kalahari Monate Lodge offers an abundance of birdlife for bird enthusiasts. There are also various game species in the area, including gemsbok, springbok, zebra, eland, steenbok, wildebeest, camel, suricate, and ostrich. A telescope on the hill allows guests to view wildlife or enjoy the landscape. There is 37 km of gravel road through the park if you wish to go on a self-drive game-viewing trip, and three hiking trails are also available.

              Kalahari Monate Lodge is the best place to stay near Upington.

              Fantastic showers after a long trip and good location close to town the only criticism is that although there are braai facilities there is nowhere to sit in front of an open fire in the eveing perhaps a small area could be made for this

              We stayed at Monate on our trip up to the Kgalagadi and were due to stay there again tomorrow on our return but have decided to drive the extra 550km to Colesberg.
