PERSONAL REVIEW BY LEILANI - FOUNDER OF DATE NIGHT SA
Bona Bona Game Lodge
is situated along the N12 Treasure Route between Klerksdorp And Wolmaranstad in the North-West, approximately 2.5 hours' drive from Johannesburg. If you've ever wanted to get out of the city but didn't want to spend up to 4 or 5 hours reaching your destination, this wonderful lodge should be at the top of your list. Getting there is simple, fun and scenic - the roads are in great condition and there are plenty of interesting attractions along the way.
This makes for a wonderful little road trip - simply pack a cooler and make frequent stops to enjoy the local hospitality. Arriving at Bona Bona is like stepping into a zone of tranquillity - it's so quiet and serene that you immediately feel relaxed and content. This four-star lodge sleeps up to 118 guests at a time, so it's a great option for weddings and bigger get-togethers with family and friends. It's also tailormade for proposals, honeymoons and anniversaries.
The on-site restaurant
prepares wonderful food (the lamb shank comes highly recommended!) and there is a spa as well! Bona Bona also plays host to wine tastings, bridal fairs and other events, so keep an eye on their social pages to see what's cooking in their neck of the woods. All in all - a great experience and an excellent date night destination.
