Chalets not... More

Such a hard place to review as the natural beauty and animals leads you to say excellent (it really is an awesome park to drive around in - the roads are well designed and the scenery is stunning) but the management lets it down a bit. We stayed in chalets at Lilydale. The chalets are beautifully sited above the river.... More

Very nice and wonderful experience visited the restaurant and nothing was to much for the staff which helped us in a very professional and friendly manner. Thumbs up for Mokala.

The thatched chalet we stayed in was a delight. There was a large separate kitchen area with all that you would need but you must take all your food supplies in with you as there is no on site food shop or restaurant.. The bedroom was large and the bathroom more than adequate. Outside the chalet there was a covered... More

BE SURE TO TAKE TIME OUT TO STOP OVER AT THIS LOVELY NATIONAL PARK. MOKALA. It is a Parks Board site. The little "cottages" are basic and simple, but more than adequate. We stayed at the Lillydaleside of the Park. The "cottages" overlook the river and the Park. It stocks wild life like Roan, Sable, Oryx and Eland Antelope that... More

Mokala National Park near Kimberley is definitely worth a visit! Reception staff are friendly and helpful. We saw a variety of animals. This was our fourth visit to the park and this time we spotted a rhino as well! Enjoyed a lovely picnic under the thorn tree. The museum is definitely worth a visit as well. The park is well...

What a beautiful reserve. Every staff member was helpful and friendly and we felt welcome from the time we entered the gate. Our chalet was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We had breakfast in the restaurant which was great and good value for money. The greatest thing however is the park itself. We saw so much and such a variety... More

I recommend to book both Rest Camps (Mosu Lodge and Lilydale Camp) because wildlife is differs from north to south. Mosu has an illuminated waterhole where we saw Kudu, Waterbuck, Eland, Red Hartebeest and Springbok. The chalets at Lilydale have spectacular views over the Riet River, but the restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch only. Dinner at the Mosu... More
