The lodge is in amazing area, first impression of everything was: wow. We saw six elephants at waterhole in the afternoon... After that, we were a bit unlucky. The weather changed (in the end of africas spring was 12-14 degrees). We chose morning game drive - we dont know exactly what to expect, it was fine, but afterwards we found,... More

This was a great place with amazing food. Friendly staff who joined us for meals and drinks. Made it feel like we were not just another guest at a resort but part of the experience.

Masodini is an amazing place. The staff were all genuinely concerned with ensuring all of their guests were comfortable and enjoying their stay. The meals in the boma were exceptionally well prepared and delicious. It would be impossible to leave hungry. The game drives were very productive (lions, elephants, zebra, giraffes, steenbok, kudu, waterbucks, hippos). Too many to count. Overall... More

What a marvelous and beautiful setting in the bushveld. Arriving at the main gate we were met by a friendly security guard who directed us to Masondini. On arrival at the lodge we were met by one of the friendly managers and a assistant who treated with a nice refreshing ice tea. Our chalet had a 3D view of the... More

Dear bklerk, Thank you very much for that review. Whenever you come back, we would be happy to welcome you. And off course there is a difference between a self drive into Kuger and a game drive in an open vehicle off road through our reserve.
