The Lodge is situated right within the reserve, so not close to the surrounding streets. The very friendly owner welcomed us with a refreshing drink before showing us our spacious, clean, luxurious room with an outdoor shower. The food was great with lunch and an open-air braai in the evening. We had two safari drives (evening and morning) with knowledgeable... More

We had a perfect stay at Mohlabetsi - Tony, Alma and the team made us most welcome, the room was everything we needed, the food and massage were great and the game viewing excellent. Can warmly recommend it.

Mohlabetsi was a great place to stay. The people who work there are amazing and incredibly helpful. It is also small and family-run, so there is a certain laid back charm I really enjoyed. The food was amazing. The trackers and guides are extremely knowledgeable and dedicated and are invested in getting guests to see, enjoy and experience the wildlife.... More

We were very excited to return to Mohlabetsi. Our family of 5 adults stayed in the two family lodges which were newly built since we were last there in 2006. They are spacious and very nicely decorated. All of the staff is exceptionally friendly. The personal touches such as flowers in the room and a handwritten note to welcome you,... More

We stayed here 3 days during our honeymoon and had the best time. It was our first time in South Africa and the first time we went on Safari. We did not see the leopard but that was just bad luck. Hamilton was great and made us feel save the whole time. The relaxed atmosphere, great food, best view, nice... More

A very nice and friendly atmosphere. The rooms, the service, the food, etc. All were very high class. The safaridrives with Hamilto, morning and evening were a lifetime experience. We experienced the Big Five. We are very, very satisfied with our visit at Mohlabetsi.

Place was really nice. Staff very friendly. Excellent food. Got to see all big five during my two day stay. Feels like colonial England while you are there. Tried drifters lodge for the next two days. Also great but totally different taste

We've stayed at many places, but the warm welcome and the hospitality you receive here is absolutely the BEST! And the safari is great too - our rangers managed to show us the Big 5 during the very first drive. Thank you, Mohlabetsi Team for a superb stay !

all the staff, from the ranger to the service people and the kitchen did a great job, which made the stay so pleasant. The ranger didn't stop before they could show us all the big five animals, plus much more others.

I shower with nature, in a private but nature open area, where I can see monkeys jumping from one tree branch to another, Hornbill (Zazu) birds all around, a dog chasing the monkeys who tease him (a lot), zebras in the background, next to a herd of impalas of all sizes, the hut-style bedroom decor is typical South African; they...
