The warmest hospitality with such knowledge and expertise. On one special evening, dinner was presented on personal table trays.

A nice place opposite the Mupungubwe National park, quiet situated, with nice rondavels as accomodation and a camp with swimmingpool. Good food and very nice people.We liked it very much, great value for money.

My stay at the lodge was excellent and the reception was super.The location is excellent except that the signage must be improved. Bigger sign post may help.I enjoyed the rooms and space. Although it was a hot day I was kept cool by the fan.

We had a lovely stay. The staff was very friendly, helpful and full of nice suprises. Compliments to the cook. She created wonderful and delicious meals. We had a chocolate birthdaycake and a bottle of champagne from the house. The staff gave us several options to enjoy our stay. Must do breakfast in Mapungubwe Park with a nice filled coolbox!!!

My wife and I spent two nights and it wasn't enough. The location is beautiful, the lodge first rate and the staff is excellent. We would like to return some day and spend more time at the lodge and region.

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at Mopane mid-October -- our first trip to South Africa and first bush stay! Mopane was very lovely -- chalets larger and more comfortable than I expected. Outdoor shower with vista of surrounding land fantastic, indoor shower great too. Just sitting on our little patio looking out was beautiful and restful. We... More

Mopane Bush Lodge was an amazing experience. Extremely warm and friendly staff that make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive. Food was great, three meals a day. Chats around the fire, a true "bush" experience and an absolute must.
