Everything was wonderful from the initial reception, grounds, meals, amazing room, staff and owners! We saw all kinds of animals - even a leopard, which are difficult to find. The Rangers were all experienced, very knowledgeable and made everyday an interesting outing. I would recommend Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge to anyone who is considering booking a safari in or near Kruger... More

We've lodged 3 nights at Mohlabetsi. It was our first safari experience and it was fantastic! From the first minute we felt at home and that stayed till the very last minute. The food at noon is great, served outside in the garden. A garden which has view on a drinking place where animals come during the day. Lovely! Dinner... More

Close to Hoedspruit is this a very nice place. Peaceful and small. Animals close by. Pleasant staff. Nice decorated and clean houses. Nice food, but you have to like chicken, because you eat that almost every day… Beautiful place where you have lunch outside. Dinner is around the fire. Nice, but we would prefer it with our own table/family around... More

We had a wonderfull stay at Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge. The staff is working very hard to make our stay very relaxed. Our ranger Solly showed us the big 5 (including Lions having zebra for breakfast!) in three days. The room was large, lovely and comfortable. We did have to get used to being part of the strict schedule: gamedrive at... More

My stay at Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge was one of the most memorable holidays that I've had. I visited as a single traveler in July 2015. The lodge was a warm lovely place, where Tony, Alma and the team really made me feel at home. The safari experience was excellent. Everything was better than I could have expected - the accommodation,... More

Food was excellent and lots of it. The facilities are great as a 4star hotel. Well organized and very friendly staff. Saw 4 of the big 5. Stayed for 5 days and it was just right. 3 days is also a good option. Get there by 12pm to make the most of your first day. Plan to leave at 11... More

My wife and I stayed at Mohlabetsi for 3 nights in October 2014 while on our honeymoon. We had an absolutely wonderful time, and can't wait to go back. The rangers are very good, and Hamilton did a great job finding the animals that we wanted to see specifically. We got to see a pride of lions finish off a... More

Everything at Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge was wonderful!! The food was the best that we had during our stay in South Africa. The fresh bread at every meal was absolutely divine. Each meal it was a different type of bread! The food was carefully crafted to give you a taste of South Africa. The game rides were wonderful! We saw lions,... More

Carefully selected menus to suite all tastes with exceptional food quality and presentation, warm chats around the evening fire, great game drives with knowledgable rangers. Very reasonably priced for a 20 bed safari... More
