We stayed for 6 nights here, early January 2017. We wanted above average accommodation, but not de-luxe as this seemed rather against the ethos of staying in a game reserve where the environment could be fragile. Mohlabetsi ticked all the boxes, with comfortable 'rondels' in an atmospheric setting, the most welcoming staff and knowledgeable rangers, excellent food and most affordable...

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Mohlabetsi. The staff was very accommodating of our family with two young boys, including providing us with our own vehicle for the game drives and arranging for an earlier dinner when we asked. They also surprised our young son with a mini-birthday celebration, which he loved. We really enjoyed watching the zebras and...

Our family of 5 truly enjoyed our Family Lodge for our 4 night stay at Mohlabetsi and we really appreciated the air conditioned comfort on the hot days. The staff were all friendly and the food was very good, especially the salads and omelettes. There is some magical spice that they put in the omelettes that makes them taste fantastic....

Me and my boyfriend spent 3 nights at Mohlabetsi. The lodges are beautiful and surrounded by overwhelming nature. Our stay was very relaxed, everything was well organized, and the food was very nice.

Everything about our stay was fabulous! Twice daily safaris with a fabulous ranger (Hamilton) meant that we were able to see all of the animals we dreamed of seeing in Africa. The meals were scrumptious, the staff were amazing, the accommodations were great, everything was perfect.

This was our first safari experience in South Africa and what an experience it was. I cannot say enough good things about Mohlabetsi Lodge and its staff. We had the privilege of spending 3 nights here. The accommodations were inviting and clean (love the outdoor showers). The overall setting is absolutely brilliant, you can spot wildlife just by sitting next...
