Wildlife is high on the agenda at Mongena. Experience the African bush with our qualified rangers and trackers on our well maintained fleet of game vehicles. We offer 5 game drives per day during the summer months and 4 during the winter months  (times vary according to season) taking you to the best Big 5, cheetah and hippo sightings imaginable. Other species one can expect to see are Giraffe, Eland, Kudu, Impala, Zebra, Blue Wildebeest (Gnu), Red Hartebeest, Tsessebe, Warthog, Black-backed Jackal, Crocodile, Aardwolf, Aarvark, Brown Hyena, Caracal, Serval, Porcupine, Genet (small-spotted and large-spotted) and the occasional Leopard. Go to wildlife gallery.

The viewing deck at the Fish Eagle boathouse boma on the Mongena dam/lake is worth a stop-over on your game drive to enjoy the splendid view over the 28 hectare dam. Board the luxury boat for a sunset cruise and watch the sky turn to a romantic purple-blue whilst listening to the African Fish Eagle’s cry . A cash bar and complimentary snacks are available on all game drives and sunset cruises for your enjoyment. The dam and its adjoining wetlands lend themselves to splendid bird watching. Over 300 species have been recorded on the reserve - we invite you to come and find your ‘lifer’.
