Looking for a conveniently situated lodge for a quick weekend get away, Mabula Lodge exceeded our expectations from the friendly service, accommodation, outstanding meals and abundance of facilities and activities which kept us busy from the time we arrived until the time we left. I would definitely recommend this lodge to all my family and friends.

Very enjoyable! The rangers and game drives were excellent! Food variety a little monotonous on the buffet with two meals virtually the same each day. Kids club a bit disappointing, not much facilitated interaction on the activities.

We spent last week at the Mabula Game Lodge in one of the Modjadhi timeshare units. The unit is completely in the bush - one cannot see the other units - the patio faced west and there were the most beautiful sunsets each evening. We had impala, kudu, warthogs, hornbills, squirrels, bushpigs and more around the unit each day. Just... More

I will come back soon. The game drives in the early morning and in the late evening gave great insight in the wildlife circumstances and activities. Back in the Lodge it was a good feeling of comfort and safety. I would have loved to stay longer and enjoy the place even more intensively.
