Moseltha was one of a kind experience... While Madikwe is well known for game, Mosetlha I would say is known for its hospitality... It's like living on an adventure for an adventure... The place looks like a fairyland in the evening with solar lamps lighting up the entire place... The best part is that mobile phones or laptops or iPads... More

My dad and I had a really amazing time at Mosetlha. It was both of our first times in South Africa, and we couldn't have had a better time. We hope to be able to come back someday! The animals are AMAZING, Johnny (the ranger who took us on game drives) is so knowledgeable and funny, and the staff and... More

My wife and I pondered how and where to spend three nights and four days on safari in South Africa, debating Kruger vs alternatives. We were just delighted to find Mosetlha Eco Lodge, a bush camp with outstanding staff and management and a very charming simplicity. Madikwe, where Mosetlha is located, seems to have a sophisticated and enlightened approach to... More

This was my 14th trip so I think that says it all. Superb as usual, all amenities great, staff fantasic, Gregg the Camp Manager a perfect Host, and the game viewing out of this world! I thought I would focus this paticular review around some advice and tips that may be useful to people who still have not visited Mosetlha.... More

When you're going on safari, the most important item is game viewing and Mosetlha delivered thanks to outstanding guiding by Johnnie. We found six of the magnificent seven (missed the leopard) on four game drives. Then, the camp experience. Great food, conversation, and overall experience... Especially the donkey boiler to take a shower. What a great way to spend a... More

I looked forward to my return to Mosetlha bush Camp with anticipation, as well as a slight bit of apprehension -- too many times, second visits to spots you loved the first time around can wind up disappointing. That said, my second visit exceeded my expectations, by far. Simply stated, Mosetlha is a GEM of a bush camp! This is... More

The Madikwe Game Reserve and the Mosetlha Bush Camp & Eco Lodge within the reserve are very very special places. The reserve itself is a magnificent 75,000 hectares situated on the Botswana border not all that far from Gaberone. The entirety of the reserve, however, is within South Africa (specifically the North West Province), about 90 kilometres roughly north of... More

Mosetlha is a great lodge for getting an intimate and raw bush experience. The lodge is unfenced ( apart from a line of electric fence high up to keep elephants out). The facilities are basic but easy to use, comfortable and serve their purpose. If you visit during winter be sure to take plenty of warm clothes. The lighting creates... More

I recently visited Mosetlha with my 2 boys (9 &11) and quite honestly I was apprehensive. Firstly, because they were away from their iPads, Xbox and Computer. Secondly, I was worried that they would get bored on the game drives (2 a day). Boy was I wrong, it was their best holiday/adventure to date! From the cabins, lapa, showers and... More

Dear ChristieKim2014 Thanks so much for this - great that you and the boys loved it. Amazing when children learn that going out to find ellies and lions is actually a superior experience to getting to the next level on a computer game!! And it doesn't do anything to dampen enthusiasm when you find ALL of the big five and... More

Where do I start!!! If you are wanting a full bush eco experience this is the place to be! The Game Rangers, staff and hostess were unbelievable!! Food was in abundance (couldn't even eat all meals, there was so much) and all food dished up was absolutely delicious! There is always someone on hand to help you with any questions... More
