Masodini was a highlight of our holiday to SA. Very friendly , comfortable lodge. Saw the big five in three drives including a great leopard experience. Would highly recommend. Thank you to all staff.

One is normally a bit apprehensive when booking online without any referrals from friends. More particularly so when the price is much lower than other lodges in the same area. Before I get to the accommodation, firstly the reserve. The Balule reserve has some of the most unspoilt bush we have had the pleasure to visit. The game drives are... More

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.

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
