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

From the welcome arrival to the sad departure, Alma and Tony will never fail to impress you. both are totally dedicated to the experience they offer you. 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

We were welcomed in a warm way by Toni and Alma, almost as if we're family. Everything is good. Especially the combination ranger Solly and tracker Rodgers. We like the cosy atmosphere, the view from the lodge into the bush, the very friendly staf, so will get back at Mohlabetsi.

Before we flew from Cape Town to Johannesburg to go on safari, we admitably had our doubts about going on safari (As first timers). Our opinion completely changed during our stay in Mohlabetsi. It was by far the best experience of our 3 weeks' holiday in South Africa. We have never seen such a dedicated, competent and passionate staff. We... More
