“Great experience and very pleasant place to be!”
Reviewed 20 September 2009

The Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge is an intimate lodge…. simple but very comfortable with a fantastic team. The owner Tony is a very nice person and the team is always smiling and caring for us. They love that place and the wildlife. Rangers and trackers are knowledgeable and friendly. We also had nice meals and very pleasant evenings. We had a wonderful time, enjoyed the game views and learned a lot! We certainly recommend it !

We based our trip around the availability here. Food the best we have eaten in Africa. rooms are simple but comfortable and very clean. Ian the ranger is the best we have ever had. All the staff are brilliant here. This is a great placve as the staff REALLY care and enjoy what they do. You will learn so much about the bush. Don't hesitate

Our recent stay was nothing short of remarkable. From the moment we arrived until our sad departure after only 3 days, I have nothing but fond memories. The rondavels were immaculately kept and furnished beautifully. Our game rides (although bitterly cold until the sun warmed things) were spectacular. Our guide Lucky and trackers Hamilton and Lucky did their utmost to find game for us and on several occasions we were out much longer than the expected 3 hours, hunting for more for us to see. Their knowledge of the bush and animal behaviours was truly amazing. Our hosts were absolutely charming, and the meals were superb.

We had the excellent fortune of watching amazing elephant behavious, some that even Lucky hadn't seen - his shrieks of laughter as the young bucks challenged a hippo made me realize we were seeing something unique. And his deft driving when we got charged by an angry matriarch helped us realize that one truly must respect nature at all times.

I hope to return when I am next in South Africa.

Made to feel very welcome and part of the extended family from everyone involved. Game drives were very exciting, to be up so close and personal with these wild animals was nothing short of amazing. Rangers and trackers made if very interesting and entertaining for us, they were so very knowledgeable. The food was really really excellent, lots of it and served with smiles and good humuor. Sitting on the lawn having lunch and seeing Giraffes pass by was a sight to behold, not to mention warthogs playing on the path outside our bedroom. Liked it so much we stayed an extra night.. Would recommend this to all for a really unique experience.

This was our first trip to the Kruger - and we can't wait to go back again. It was stunning! Mohlabetsi was amazing - and I am convinced that this is the only way to do this kind of holiday. The ranger and tracker who took us out every day were knowledgable, friendly and enthusiastic. They made sure we saw all the animals up close and personal without interferring with them. We were even lucky enough to see a leopard. In fact, we saw all of the big 5, along with loads of other creatures both big and small.
The relaxed and personal attention made for total unwind and maximum enjoyment.

We stayed here for 3 nights on our first ever safari and we were extremely happy with our choice. Magic to be in the wild like this and see animals up close, we saw "everything" except Leopard. Great service and food. At the evening meals we ate outside at a fireplace inside a pallisad which was very nice. Giraffes and wilderbeest walking by just outside the lodges and lions roaring throughout the night. The rangers were very good and the tracking of a rhino with a calf was very exciting! We cant wait for our next safari.

This is small, intimate lodge. Its comfortable. The food was good. We saw a lot of lions - plus elephants, water buffalo & rhino. Sadly no leopard, but never mind! The safari drives are in open land rovers. The rangers are very good a finding lions, which we found 3 days in a row.

  • Liked — Wildlife. Evening meals. Intimacy
  • Disliked — No leopards whenwe were there
