We stayed at Mopane Bush Lodge for 4 nights in May 2015 and had a fantastic stay! Coba and her team displayed wonderful hospitality and we felt like we were at a home away from from home. We were staying in the area specifically to visit Mapungumbwe National Park but also to have a relaxing time and recharge out batteries... More

How will we ever forget the De Villiers Family? The interaction started when the first e-mail came from Phelwana Lodge and the excitement was instantaneous because like-minded souls from another South African Hospitality product were coming to enjoy our Long stay – Special and relax. Pierre and Jeanine were brining their Grand Mother to live out a dream on her... More

We spent 3 nights at the Mopane Lodge and it was supposed to be the highlight of our trip based on the recommodation and the percentage of budget we spent for those 3 nights in relation to the entire trip. We travelled the second time to South Africa and so far we were everywhere overwhelmed by the outstanding service. The... More

Dear Nils and Jessica Thank you very much for the time you took to compile this detailed evaluation. I take every comment to heart and assure you it is a hard awakening for a General Manager to be criticized on a public platform. Honest, harsh feedback takes the entire team back to the basics where we try to place events... More

The food is fantastic and for the 3 nights we spent there , dinner was served in a different venue, in the airy dining room... More

Dearest Rodney . You have no idea how I value your opinion! Visitors like you are the wind under the wings of service teams. Having worked in this industry since 1987 I realize that the comments of a return guest are the most valuable. You are an ambassador for Mopane brining your visitors “HOME” and we are extremely grateful, humbled... More

We stayed for three nights at this lodge as part of our tour with Titan Tours. With only 8 rondavels it is an intimate place although there is not much to do at the actual reserve itself. Meals were very nice and the swimming pool was pleasant, if a little small. Most days we had to drive to Mapungubwe National... More

The entire stay was one treasured moment after another and unique to other lodges. Innkeeper Coba offered a sophisticated flair to the bush experience. The warmest hospitality with such knowledge and expertise. On one special evening, dinner was presented on personal table trays. The chairs and trays were in a semi circle embracing the fire and the starry night"..very special.... More

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.
