We cannot fault our three night stay here. The accommodation was excellent, thankfully with aircon. The staff went out of there way to help, the food delicious and varied. The trip to see the cave paintings was far better than we expected, and the climb to see the ancient home of kings very informative with the dry humoured Cedric. All... More

I stayed at Mopane Bush Lodge for three nights in early November. It was part of a two week safari tour and turned out to be the biggest highlight of my time in South Africa. I cannot fault anything about the three magical days I spent right on the edge of the mysterious African bush. The managers of the lodge... More

Stayed for 3 nights at this Lodge, we were made very welcome by Michelle/Brigitte and Raynaud, the rooms were excellent, as was the food, a very idyllic place, we enjoyed it immensely, but 3 nights is never enough sadly we had to move on.

This was my first visit to South Africa, and Mopane made it wonderful. I've stayed all sorts of hotels and accommodation, and the Bush lodge has got to be one of the best experiences I've had. The lodge is well appointed, and geared towards creating intimacy with the guests, and allowing you to experience the surrounding the bushveld and nature.... More

We stayed here as part of a four centre safari holiday from the UK. The rooms are excellent with the added novelty of an extra outside shower if you fancy getting close to nature. The recent change in management shows promise but work is still required around the pool area and the room safes were 'on order'. The food was... More

What a special place. I loved the atmosphere. This place has real soul. Thank you to Reinhardt and Michele and you fantastic team. I enjoyed the early walks, the wonderful bird hide and bula the young tamed eland bull. The game drive at mapungubwe was inspiring with great interpretation from Brigitte the guide.
