We didn't really know what to expect when booking this place, it was the last camp to have a space and we wanted to stay in the park (didn't know too much about the private offerings till after). The chalet is well designed, clean, comfortable and looked after. The camp is inside a tall fencing with jurassic Park style gate entrance, so very safe. The chalet we had was designed for 4 persons, we had to let 2 beds go unused. There is a kitchen area and dining area outside, as well as a dedicated BBQ for each chalet. We went end of December, although it had number of people, we didn't feel crowded ever.
The chalets have all working appliances like fridge, kettle etc and even provide all cutlery and plates, pans so you can really travel light. Overall a really nice place to stay and could imagine it being great fun with larger family or friends.
I would say be cautioned on the park provided drives however, we went on both the sunset and the surrounding rise one, however th loud truck stays on the roads so really didn't offer much that you could see in your own car. Actually we did see more driving ourselves than with the paid drives. The night drive is an experience but same 'no promise' of sightings is uttered. For the camp location, loads of impala and similar type of animals around here, elephants wee more visible further south and few cat sightings more near Northern camps. Mopani has a lake nearby but at least We didn't find a good viewings from there.
Overall excellent camp to stay at, though animal sightings are unfortunately not the best.

Camp was stuffed to capacity (it was over December so if you don't like crowds avoid during this time). The one bedroom chalets are badly designed with no privacy whatsoever and the view is of the paved road and your neighbours. Bedcovers were a little grubby although sheets were clean. Pillows were worn so thin they really could not be called a pillow. We had a bat in our room, which I really didn't mind as such but unfortunately there was bat poop all over the room and bedding. Aircon didn't work in the one front room either and it was necessary in the December heat. This is my least favorite out of the four other camps I have stayed at in the Kruger. I will only stay there again if I absolutely have to en route somewhere else.

I was ....so and so to go in the "official" camp in the Kruger. But we had no choice. We were coming from the great north (parfuri gate) and we had to reach a private reserve near sabi sand. days of travel by road to benefit of the "jewel of south africa: the kruger). But this camp is really good: large and separated "house" , really clean, with all the confort. It's not luxurious , but it's not he price of this too. The cleaning team is perfect, kitchen too, large fridge. Just one thing: dont' forget your meal....the shop is limited there. Really nice bar

Room Tip: near the lake

We spent two nights hre. There is a huge Lake and we would advise you to go to the Restaurant and take a sundowner or two to watch the sunset. Mopani Rest Camp is well run, it's an ideal place to spend one or two days in this part of Kruger. The rooms are not the greatest, take your own pillows.

The Kruger is always special but try and avoid Mopani. The linen was so thin and shredded on the beds you could see through it. The matress was lumpy, squeaky and uncomfortable, pillows were old and flat. The bathroom had cobwebs in and the previous guests toothbrush was still on the basin (Unless Housekeeping uses this to clean-not likely). The outside light did not work and the kettle-outside had moths in. The restaurant service was sublime!!!!The view fantastic and the food of a good quality. Curio shop expensive but had a good variety. Reception made a balls up of my on-line booking but sorted it out quickly. The main lodge is awesome but the rooms need attention.
