This was our second stay at Mosethla, and we definitely won't be going anywhere else. Everything from our arrival to departure was incredible. We have had the pleasure of having Justice and Kgomotso as guides and they both delivered! We saw everything, and they were both so knowledgable, answering any and all questions we had. The lodging was great. Even... More

We spent two nights at Mosetlha as part of our honeymoon this July. Everything about our time there was amazing - the staff at the camp were incredibly welcoming and took great care of us, the cabins were amazingly comfortable, and the game drives were unreal. Our guide, Jonny, could answer literally ANY question about the animals and environment we... More

This was the first stay in Africa for my family (I have been around allover in the 90ies) and I took them to this remote ecocamp with donkes showers and hot water made over a fire. Yep! One of the best experiences we ever had. Set in semi-open huts for a max of 16 people and only surrounded by an... More

This is the 3rd time that I've stayed a Mosetlha because Caroline & her group provide excellent services. Having no electricity or running water enhances the bush experience without making the experience uncomfortable. As a vegetarian, I especially enjoy the cuisine because Caroline (the owner) is one also, so I get terrific food. The game drivers are organized by excellent... More

We were so lucky to have chosen Mosethla Bush Camp out of all the lodge options in Madikwe. From our pick-up at the parking lot to the dinner preferences of the guests: everything was done with the utmost care, attention and thoughtfulness. We felt instantly at home. You might think that staying in the bush during winter would be a... More

Have just returned from Mosetlha having had a great time, albeit too short. The weather was cold so had to make sure i wrapped up warm for the game drives - this was primarily the reason for my visit and so i wanted to ensure i enjoyed them. Our guide Jonny was superb and ensured that we had the right... More

The rustic atmosphere was very appealing - no WiFi, no electricity, no water on tap and no fence around the camp - no problem! The food and service were great but there were two things that we, as wildlife photographers, appreciated the most: 1. Each night we had opportunities to photograph resident animals in the camp - buffalo, brown hyena... More

Mosetlha was my first "eco-lodge" experience. There was no electricity or running water, and to be honest, I think that really added to the experience rather than take away from it. The only "issue" that I had was with sleep. For those of you who have never been to Mosetlha, it is located within Madikwe Game Reserve and based on... More

Mosetlha is a true eco-camp and the bush camp experience is phenomenal. The camp, while very safe, blends with the surrounding area rather than separates guests from it. The lack of electricity, plumbing, etc. does nothing to detract from Mosetlha as an extremely comfortable and clean place to stay. In fact, we never "noticed" the lack of electricity or plumbing...
