We choose moditlo for our honeymoon, and stayed for five nights at Moditlo. This was our first safari, and we enjoyed it a lot. We will remember it for years to come!
Lodge stay includes two game drives everyday: early in the morning and at the afternoon, our trackers Aurela and Andrey were warm and truly brilliant at their job. They were great at tracking animals, giving details and answering any questions we had. It took three days and a little bit patient to track all the animals in our game drives: lion, giraffe, elephant, cheetah, rhino, wildebeest, kudu, jackal, impala, bushbaby... We enjoyed the bushveld and the escarpment besides animals tracking, the view is just breath taking.
Other than game drive we did couple other activities suggested by the lodge. Aurela and Andrey accompanied us to the other outdoor activities including visiting rehabilitation center for wild animals, and boat trip of the canyon. I would wholeheartedly recommend the rehab center to everyone.
The lodge was great - the room we stayed was very close to the water. Animals would come right in front of our windows. All the staffs were friendly, attentive and really made us feel like family during our stay.
Food was great overall, beautifully presentation in every meal, great chef and nice staffs.
We met one lovely SA family in our last game drive. They are the best kind of people you can meet in the trip to a foreign country. We hope to exchange our contact information but miss our chance after realizing they were staying only for one night. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world you should visit. Five stars to Moditlo.
