The staff was very accommodating of our family with two young boys, including providing us with our own vehicle for the game drives and arranging for an earlier dinner when we asked. They also surprised our young son with a mini-birthday celebration, which he loved. We really enjoyed watching the zebras and...

The staff were all friendly and the food was very good, especially the salads and omelettes. There is some magical spice that they put in the omelettes that makes them taste fantastic....

We went on 6 game drives with a ranger and a tracker (Lucky & Nico), and they made sure we got the full safari experience. They know...

Everything about our stay was fabulous! Twice daily safaris with a fabulous ranger (Hamilton) meant that we were able to see all of the animals we dreamed of seeing in Africa. The meals were scrumptious, the staff were amazing, the accommodations were great, everything was perfect.

This was our first safari experience in South Africa and what an experience it was. I cannot say enough good things about Mohlabetsi Lodge and its staff. We had the privilege of spending 3 nights here. The accommodations were inviting and clean (love the outdoor showers). The overall setting is absolutely brilliant, you can spot wildlife just by sitting next...

The lodge is beautiful and all my expectations were met. Doctor and Hamilton are experienced, knowledgeable and entertaining guides. I saw the Big 5 in 2 days! I couldn't have asked for more.

We've just finished our 3 nights stay in Mohlabetsi, and miss it already! It's such a special place, a great combination of relaxation and peace to allow you to unwind, and action packed safari drives. We had some great sightings - all the Big Five plus hyenas and cheetah, all within touching distance! Loved the open air vehicles. The food...
