Game drives allow getting very close to the animals-always a treat. Tony and... More

We travel a lot and very rarely go back to the same place just because the world is so big and there is so much to experience. However Mohlabetsi has become one of the few exceptions to our rule. We went there in 2009 and loved it and this time found it to be every bit as good. I can'... More

We just returned home from our amazing South African holiday. We spent 3 nights at Mohlabetsi, and loved every minute. The couple who manage this lodge are the best! From the moment of our arrival we were treated like family. That is the way they treat all their guests. The lodge is small and intimate. The rondavels are warm and... More

Loved staying at Mohlabetsi - very VERY nice staff members (all of them!) and the place isn't too big so you'll get in touch with other tourists as well as the staff members. The lodges are beautiful and for a little adventure there is the shower outside. :) Admirable view one has while lunch and supper - you can see... More

Absolute fantastic safari, and our tracker/driver made it an unforgettable experience. Me and my family enjoyed every second of our stay. Everything from food to gaming was perfect. I really ca recommend it. Ulf:-)

This was our second stay and still really convincing. Mohlabetsi was the only lodge we visited now second time, same level as 3 years before. Perfect game drive. Cars are not overloaded as in seen in other lodges, many animals, extremely friendly staff, well organised.

Can't wait to book again and visit this lovely lodge. From the moment I made my booking in June 2014 to our goodbyes after our weekend stay from 12th to 14th Dec 2014 - we were met with very friendly, warm, helpful and welcoming staff. Our rondavels were cosy, loved the outdoor shower, and we had everything we needed. The... More

This was my first safari and Mohlabetsi made it a experience of a lifetime. The staff was welcoming and friendly. They met your every need. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. The rangers and spotters were also excellent. They made sure we saw many animals and were extremely informative. I was there just a few days... More
