We returned in December with two of our teenage children and it was an absolute highlight, no complaints about 5am wakeup calls or long hours in a vehicle, it was all action!! We had fantastic game viewing lead by Johnny who was extremely competent and knowledgable and of course incredibly quick to spot anything that moved! Each drive was totally... More

Everything was positive on our 3 night stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the drives were led by professional guides with knowledge in everything. We managed to catch the big 5 in just one day actually. The food is all taken care of and there are books, magazines and games to entertain yourself in between drives.

Given the timing of our holiday, we were unfortunately only able to stay one night at Mosetlha and having spent that one night there we wished we had changed our entire itinerary to stay longer. It was incredible. We had the absolute pleasure of meeting June (the owner) whilst there, and Gregg the manager was extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming.... More

This is one of the most authentic, beautiful ways to experience wildlife in an environmentally friendly way. I have now visited 7-8n times, with family, fiancé, and leading a study abroad group from America. This is always the highlight, especially for students who are visiting this part of the continent or who have never seen sub-saharan wildlife on safari. The... More

This was my very first safari experience in Africa but having spent a long time in the Amazon forest in the past I knew I wanted to stay somewhere basic enough to blend in the wilderness experience. On the other hand, I'm not so young and fit now that I can simply sleep on the floor under a tent so... More

We stayed at the Mosethla Bush Camp for two nights and we loved it! The camp is rather small and can house up to 20 persons (maximum). It is situated in the heart of the Madikwe game reserve with only the wilderness surrounding it. The huts are really nice and partially open. Two huts share one "bathroom", which consists of...

Wow, what can I say... We stayed at the camp for two nights in early November 2014. The camp is fantastic and gets you right back to living with nature, although basic it is comfortable, peaceful and the food was fantastic. They have a wonderful arrangement which makes this an Eco lodge but with lovely touches, like the honesty bar!... More

I stayed there in early October 2014, and I can only describe this visit as "simply the best"! The accommodations (though pretty basic) were much more than adequate and quite comfortable, overall; however, the game drives were unbeatable. Our ranger-driver-guides were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Finding (and photographing) a leopard taking her kill up a tree (well after nightfall) was... More

This was our first game drive and what a wonderful experience. We absolutely loved every second. The cabins, the game drives, the food, the staff, our guide that we named gorgeous and Caroline were all amazing. Thanks Caroline, for sorting out my dietary requirements. Nothing was too much trouble. Just wish we lived closer to come back several times a... More
