This was our first safari experience in South Africa and what an experience it was. The propritors of this well-run lodge did everything to make our stay memorable. They were able to accommodate a vegetarian (me) as well as my carnivore husband. Our room was well-appointed and the staff-guided safaris were everything they purported to be: we had seen the...

We could not have found a better place to start our tour in South Africa! The Rondawel was very tidy and comfortable! Tonys and Almas main task was to make us feel at home. The whole staff was looking after us as if were friends and not only tourists. All rangers were very professional and turned every single game drive...

I cannot say enough good things about Mohlabetsi Lodge and its staff. We had the privilege of spending 3 nights here. The accommodations are inviting and clean (love the decor and outdoor showers). The staff is attentive. The setting is beautiful. There is a lot of lovely open common space for meals (which are fantastic) and downtime between the game...

Well organized lodge. Good food and every day a morning and afternoon game drive. They do their ultimate best to score the big five for all guests, sometimes ignoring other animals if the list is not complete. No problem for most fly in guests. Animals need to be tracked and this can take a long time if no other car...

Lovely Safari Lodge set in The Greater Kruger National Park. Accommodation is in an African 'Roundel' style building all of which are set away from the main block which houses the restaurant and bar. An extensive garden, were you can relax on sun loungers if you wish, looks out onto the game reserve and within an hour or so of...

We had a special experience with friends whom travelled from across the world. We only stayed for one evening so the pressure was on to see the big five and more. Lucky (our guide) did not fail to impress us. Rooms were comfortable, clean and stylishly decorated. Will recommend a stay at Mohlabetsi to anyone.
