Mosetlha Bush Camp & Eco Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 September 2012

Thank you Mosetlha for a truly memorable stay!
Mosetlha Bush Camp is everything Trip Advisor reviews promise, plus so much more - truly 'paradise found'!!

Mosetlha is everything I've ever yearned for in a bush camp: a close-to-nature, friendly, laid-back, come-back-again-soon haven.......with comfortable beds open to night breezes and night sounds.....early morning flames under the donkey boiler promising hot water only a short walk away ......delicious meals, elegantly and convivially satisfying more than one's needs......open breeze-catching lounging spaces to while away leisurely afternoons, with interesting fellow-travellers and piles of interesting books...........drinks, both hot and cold, always freely available.......a welcoming fire........'firefly' lanterns magically transforming the camp at night
....and I haven't yet begun on the joys of game drives from Mosetlha: close encounters with the big 5, wild dogs, (an all-time high) - roaring lions, hooping hyenas
Ah.... I love the African bush, and long to be back at Mosetlha!!

We spent 3 nights at Mosethla during September, enjoying the warm, dry weather and the very sociable camp life and game drives. Management, staff and game rangers really go to a lot of trouble. And getting so close to wonderful wildlife - definitely to be recommended. Marianne H

Room Tip: We were happy with No. 6 - Tsesebe

My father and I spent a little over two weeks in South Africa in August. Mosethla was incredible. If you are considering doing any type of bush camp experience on your trip, this is the place you want to go.

The manager, Paul, our guide, Kgomotso, and the other staff members were incredible. Friendly, knowledgeable, and very welcoming. Accommodations, meals, and service are top notch. And, we saw an incredible array of animals on each drive.

You will not be disappointed with a stay at Mosetlha. We can't wait to return.

I figured it was a great place to get engaged! Absolutely one of our favourite places to visit and unwind. After trying to explain to people why and what it is about I figured photos speak louder than words!

What an unforgettable experience. The Lodge is rustic with no electricity yet despite this the rooms are great, bed was comfortable water bottle included, hot water via a donkey boiler ensured great showers. Food was awesome, ate far too much!! Guides - knowledgeable, fun, great trackers. Wildlife, too much to mention, Madikwe is home to big 5, saw all 5 plus so much more big and small, furry and feathery. evenings spent around the open fire enjoying tails of the bush with fellow guests, everyone here shares the table, fire etc so no one is left out, you are having fun as well as seeing great wildlife and learning about Africa

Room Tip: all rooms are the same my tip is, if you want to see the wildlife go in Winter (Southern Hemisphere...

Been there last weekend, it's such a unique experience! The night in the bush, with nothing but the animals and the night around you, the friendliness and knowledge of the staff, make Mosetlha such a stunning place!
We loved the lanterns at night, don't be scared about not having running water or electricity, it's one of the most relaxing experiences you can have
