Unfortunately during our stay the pool & poolbar was out of service and instead a bagger at work. Not nice to have a bagger 50m next to your table. The rooms are nice but a lot of insects stay in the room - always and everywhere. The service at the restaurant was very bad, absolutely not appropriate to the price...

Our ranger said it was 7200 hectares. Its too small to sustain a wide range of animals, especially predators. However the standard of accommodation, quality of staff and food was very good. It's a shame! Trips to the nearby national park were okay, but don't compensate.

Our stay was great allthough the weather was not that great and it was a bit quiet. The room was nice and our plunge pool was great to have. The wildlife in the reserve is not that great but the people were very enthousiastic.

We had such an amazing time in our prior visit that Mopane seemed to be the perfect place for me to propose to my girlfriend. Reinhard and Michelle still manage the lodge and made special arrangements for me...

We loved our cottage. It was very spacious and had its own pool. The managers Michelle and Renhard are very friendly and helpful. The new chef from Durban is an excellent cook, he even prepared a local venison stew for us at Christmas Eve. The game drives were interesting and fun although we have seen more 'big' animals in other...

The Mopane Bush Lodge is devellopping till an excellent lodge with perfect personal threatment, very special prepared exquisit meals and that in a quit and safe surrounding. The next door Mapungupwe National Park shows not only many animals, but also an impressing overview of the history some 1500 years ago.

“The only tip I can give is for the lodge itself. You need to find a way to heat your plates and coffee cups during the winter months. All of the units that my group were in had the same amenities.”
