Almere, The Netherlands
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Friendly people, nice food, good place to visit the parks. Looking after the wildlife takes time with the rangers, but they are very eager and kind to show you all you want. The lodge is very comfortable and the visit to the cultural memorials in Mapungubwe is to be advised.

I had an absolutely brilliant time at Mopane Bush Lodge. The team were very friendly and efficient (and my guide Brigitte exceptionally knowledgeable), the food was good and plentiful, and the rooms and beds large and very comfortable. To top it off the scenery was absolutely stunning - and very different from where I have been in Kruger and the...

Unfortunately during our stay the pool & poolbar was out of service and instead a bagger at work. Not nice to have a bagger 50m next to your table. The rooms are nice but a lot of insects stay in the room - always and everywhere. The service at the restaurant was very bad, absolutely not appropriate to the price...

Our ranger said it was 7200 hectares. Its too small to sustain a wide range of animals, especially predators. However the standard of accommodation, quality of staff and food was very good. It's a shame! Trips to the nearby national park were okay, but don't compensate.

Our stay was great allthough the weather was not that great and it was a bit quiet. The room was nice and our plunge pool was great to have. The wildlife in the reserve is not that great but the people were very enthousiastic.

I first visited Mopane in 2015, and had a wonderful experience. I chose to return to Mopane for a very special occasion.
