About Monte Christo Country Lodge
It was the vision of the owners of Monte Christo to create a country lodge close to Bloemfontein, with a country style look and feel, to relax and recharge the batteries after a long day. Monte Christo is situated next to Bloemfontein, off the Nelson Mandela off-ramp, which gives you the feeling of the country side, but is only 10 minutes from the central part of Bloemfontein.
