Mohlabetsi is everything you'll want in an African Safari, the staff could not do more for you, nothing was too much, you were greeted with smiles from the moment you arrived until you sadly left this amazing place. Richard our guide was very Knowledgeable about his surroundings, the night sky and the animals, he made the game drives fun and... More

We returned to Mohlabetsi after a 5 year break, and this is one of the few places in the world that we have revisited. It is a wonderfully relaxed place, great food, and just the place to go to chill form a busy life. But then add on the game drives with the knowledgable drivers and spotters then it makes... More

After the stay in the government owned part of Kruger this was like heaven. Accommodation was great, food was superb, hosts Tony and Alma were wonderful. Solly and Rogers didn't leave a stone untouched as they tracked and trekked across the park. It was worth it even though it was rough going at times but when you can track a... More

Just returned from an amazing 3/4 day stay at the Mohlabetsi Lodge. I cannot fault it. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxed and homely, the accomodation was perfect for the little time you spend in there. They really have thought about the little things that make all the difference - drinkable tap water, AC, insect screens, hairdryer, safe,... More

In Feb.2015, we (a group of 4) spent 4 wonderful nights here. The rondavels (sleeping quarters) were extremely comfortable - even had air conditioning if necessary. The food was great and beautifully served in several different camp locations. There was always a host at dinner, which lead to some interesting discussions and stories. It was the people that made it... More

Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Mohlabetsi, Richard our safari guide was excellent and certainly knows his stuff and has a real love of animals. Getting out of bed at 5am was not a problem, we saw all the big five and more.

We have been three nights in that very friendly and beautiful place. After passing the gate (100 Rand Fee) you drive 7 km straight beside a fence through the busch and have time to enter it with your own spirit and let your life behind you! Approaching at the lodge already someone is waiting for you to let you welcome... More
