We spent one night here and the service was first class throughout. The rooms are perfect. Wifi only costs 25 rand for your whole stay although the range to the rooms is poor. Game drives and bush walks are great fun although there is not much wildlife and they are very bumpy. The food is fantastic.

Beautiful place! The staff is incredible: they will do whatever they can to make you live your best experience ever! The guides will let you see animals as near as you had never imagine! Really good prices for beverage, laundry, massage and gift shop. The only thing we didn't like? The owner: he doesn't welcome you, always seem he is... More

I 100% recommend this lodge. This lodge was very comfortable and tranquil. I loved every minute I stayed there. The staff was so kind, helpful, and even fun. We had Hamilton and Lucky as our ranger/tracker and they were awesome and so much fun! Bee, Hananja, and Lauren were amazing and fun to talk to and met our every need.... More

First off, this trip began as a single staying in one room, but soon one friend decided to come with. The lodge worked hard to fit our tight timeline and was able to move things around to fit our 4 night accommodation. It wasn't too long after the booking was complete, another friend decided to join. Mohlabetsi could not have... More

I have no hesitation in recommending this lodge to everyone. The guides and staff were wonderful, with everyone giving well over 100% to ensure my family and I had a memorable visit. The food was excellent, the accommodations clean and comfortable - and the only problem I had was an outdoor shower when the weather wasn't that hot. Summer would... More

Very calm and quiet lodge where you get to be alone. The staff is very helpful and loving. Nice view over the bush and a great swimming pool. The game drives are very exciting as you always are trying to spot the animals. The rangers and the trackers are awesome! We were tracking cheetahs and suddenly the ranger said "there... More

My husband and I and our daughters and their partners spent 3 wonderful nights at Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge. Having already done a safari in Kruger 6 years ago we were worried this one wouldn't be as special, but we needn't have worried. It was an amazing, wonderful holiday with many memories which will stay with us for a long time.... More

We, a family with three teenagers, enjoyed our 3 days stay in Aug 2014. The lodge setting is cozy and relaxed. Garden is green with big trees. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, with nice outside shower. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Food is healthy and tasty, with all three meals in different setting. Breakfast is very delicious after early... More

We stayed three nights during winter (July). Welcome reception and staff was always forthcoming and friendly. Lodge is neatly arranged into several rondavels and from the lawn with sunbeds you have great opportunities to sit back, relax, and watch passing animals (actually we were quite lucky to see an elephant and a giraffe at the water hole). In the morning... More

We stayed one night in big luxury. Food was very nice and staf very helpfull. There is a welcoming bar and a nice space in the open where you have dinner. You also get. to know the other guests which was helpfull for ou stay in South Africa. Gamedrives were interesting: just such a pity the animals didn't show up
