An exquisite boathouse venue is available for private functions and boma dinners.

The Lodge is named after the Boekenhout tree, which is indigenous to the area. The resident Zebra and Nyala herd living within the gardens of the main lodge has become a trademark for Mongena and is cherished by young and old. A state-of-the art conference centre, boardrooms, a la carte 5 star Kingfisher Restaurant and a romantic wedding chapel complete the unique offerings at the main camp.
