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

We can highly recommend Masodini! Friendly and extremely trustworthy staff, fabulous, fabulous food, all meals catered for. Exceptional game sightings with Andy, a highly skilled tracker and game ranger who isn't shy to share his knowledge and skill.

Really nice lodge. Small houses with private fireplace in the middle of a private park. Great food and setting for dinner. All staff and Sabine where really friendly and went out of their way to help you. It's a small lodge so at night there's just a small group of people at dinner and at the campfire which I found...

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. We love both :-) Sunny greetings from Sabine and all Masodini people. More

The Masodini Lodge is located in Balule - Olifants West private reserve, which is a reserve directly connected to Kruger aerea, north of Hoedspruit. Balule aerea is quite a dense bush, popolated by all big 5 animals and during our visit we saw a male lion, lionesses, elephants and black rhinos with a baby rhino. The difference with Kruger N.P....

What a wonderful and super friendly place to stay, so relaxing and having the benefit of the game coming to the water hole in full view of the lodge and especially seeing pork chop every day. The game drives with Bert and Andy were an experience to be cherished. We miss you all.
