No excuses for taking the line from their website as my title, but a visit to Mosetlha really does show you what a magical place Africa can be. There is a wonderful back to nature, wilderness ethos to this the camp so that you feel in tune with nature, it really does take you away from the stresses of the... More

My wife and I spent two nights (4 game drives) at Mosethla this week. What an amazing experience. The accommodations were comfortable and offered everything you needed, a comfy bed and shaded common area. I don't know how they do it in the middle of the reserve, but the food was amazing. The field guides are both great and we... More

If you want to be 30 minutes closer to animals, listen to the sounds of the bush waking up, and be well-fed & taken care of, you will enjoy Mosetlha Bush Camp! I'm still amazed at what our guide, Justice, was able to show us on the drives. Because of his tracking skills and ability to navigate through the bush,... More

After a 6-week trip all over SA, Mosetha will stay forever in our memory. It was one of the best experiences we had in this fabulous country. If you want to "feel" the bush, go there ! We were warmly welcomed (by Caroline), we slept like a log and we were cooked good meals ! It was - at that... More

My wife and I stayed three nights and days at the lodge and had a wonderful time. Getting up every morning at 5am for a game drive was perhaps sometimes a bit difficult, but seeing the bush awaken was worth it. After a full breakfast back at the lodge around 10, there was nothing much to do except relax, read... More

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
