We've just spent a fantastic few days at Mopane with the kids. The setting is magnificent - a private farm as big as an English town, full of Mopane trees and wildlife, and very close to one of South Africa's National Parks (Mapungubwe). Tourists often don't make it up to Limpopo Province, but there's a lot here to see (including... More

We stayed for three nights, but could have stayed for many more. Lovely spacious rooms and private garden, all conveniently handy for the bar and lounge area. The highlight was the food, no end of irresistible treats, at every meal, and on the trips and walks. The vegetarian catering was very much appreciated. The style is effortlessly efficient, nothing was... More

Spent 4 nights at this excellent lodge with guiding by Andrew Rae. Room, food and hosting all of a high standard. Birding was my main aim and Andrew certainly delivered. 114 was my final count and I am not an experienced birder but Andrew made up for this with great advice and information. The San Art tour to a neighboring... More

We stayed at Mopane Bush Lodge for 3 nights on a Titan tour. This part of the tour explored the history and culture of the indigenous African peoples which was fascinating to see and hear about. The lodge itself is beautiful and our room was excellent. The hospitality of our hosts Rosemary and Andrew was superb and the food delicious.... More

This trip to Limpopo area of South A. was worth every minute. The personal reception by Paul, Rosemary and Andrew was fabulous. The visit with Andrew to the Mapungubwe park was great and instructive and especially with a lot of dedication.

Andrew and his team are wonderful - the knowledge he and his guides share is amazing. the swimming pool is great after spending... More

Personal service, good food and accommodation in a beautiful bush setting at a fair price. Access road a bit bumpy but manageable with a sedan. Dinner at the open fire in the boma gives you the real bush feel with star gazing and the surround sounds of the bush at night. We enjoyed the walks on the farm on the... More

Expert staff, lovely facilities, great vacation atmosphere, delicious food and exceptional service! What more could one ask for? We had a great stay at Mopane Bush Lodge, the surrounding nature and community, and the Lodge itself made for an unforgettable holiday.

We stayed at Mopane for 4 nights, & can honestly say that this place is fantastic. The cottages are lovely, with outdoor showers (as well as warm indoor showers!) and outdoor seating areas with beautiful views over uninterrupted velt. The hosts could not have been any better. Andy's knowledge was a pleasure to share in & his passion for wildlife... More
