    Sabine has created a fantastic atmosphere at Masodini. The level of commitment to make our stay as good as possible is amazing. The game drives are great. The tracker and guide is fantastic. We are so pleased to have found this gem.

    Hello! I would like to know more about The localization. How good is your localization for The guests that want to find The animals?

    Masodini is located in a Big Five Game Reserve. Of course it is not a zoo but the sightings are normally really good - you can find every animal here that is also at home in Krüger National Park!

    Hi Janet, You can either do the Panoramic Route to Masodini - takes 3/4 day if you visit many of the interesting spots. Or you enter Kruger Park at Phabeni Gate and drive up to Orpen Gate - which is 175km and a full day tour... More

    Dear Hernan, Rates are full board including. Game Drives are not included, as not all our guests want to join two game drives per day, but want to be flexible. Kind regards Sabine Masodini Game Lodge
