Booked an airport pick up. One day before, reconfirmed and received an email saying that was OK. Arrived at the airport. No one there. 40 min waiting, had to call the lodge. Had to wait other 20 minutes for the driver. They had had already many airport pick up complains here in Tripadvisor and don´t change the way they act!... More

We stayed here twice, for just one night each time in between flights. The rooms were lovely with very comfortable beds. The place was very quiet and relaxing for us in the middle of a very busy trip. The free airport transfers were very convenient and the staff were all very friendly and helpful! Would recommend if you need somewhere... More

Good shower, comfortable bed. Bathroom so small cannot even open door completely. Shower good, good water temperature and pressure. Most expensive can of coke in South Africa at 20 rand. Transfers to and from airport can be organised but ours was 45 mins late

We stayed here as we were getting picked up for a safari the next day. We were met at the airport and taken to our lovely room. Breakfast on the deck was lovely, had everything. Dinner was a challenge though as one of the staff refused to make a specific dish at it was "too much hassle",so we had toasties... More

Confirm your airport transfer again otherwise maybe you wil have a problem.... The same warning for "overbooked rooms". No working internet, but it is Africa. Simple breakfast Friendly staff You can sleep fine on a secure site. Keep laughing, you are on holiday. And the price is cheap so what do you expect....

We stayed here for a few days prior to starting a big camping safari across Southern Africa. We were prepared for the worst after reading a few reviews here but it was awesome! Lovely big rooms with beautiful African decor, hot brekky every morning while we overlooked some crazy ostriches running in a nearby field, super lovely staff who thankfully... More

If you look at my previous reviews you'll see I don't complain often. But this place is awful and honestly a bit of a scam! They don't have wifi, they really don't. If you look at all of the reviews, everyone says the same thing, they will tell you it is "down today" but it really never works. The rooms... More

We didn't choose MoAfrika, our safari ended there, but we loved the two nights we stayed. The staff was extremely helpful, especially Andrew. We went on two tours set up by the lodge. The only negative was a mixup with a reservation for one of our group, but I don't know if it was MoAfrika or the travel company. We... More

We had read the reviews for this lodge and really had an optimistic outlook before we arrived. We stayed here after a one week safari and before we flew home the next day from the Jo'burg Airport.
