Mopaya is a haven of tranquility and relaxation. I have been in and around the Kruger a few times, but never experienced nature the way I did at Mopaya. Zebras freely roam the property, I learned about the legend of the White Lion of Timbavati, went on a boat cruise and for the first time, took the time to admire a sunset. It was magical!

My wife and I spent 8 days at Mopaya Safari Lodge and were overwhelmed by Michel's hospitality and knowledge of the African bush and wildlife.

The variety of activities kept us involved and we saw the Big Five and many of the smaller animals in a variety of habitats. We seemed to spend a lot more time in the bush and on game drives than we had at other lodges we visited previously.

A great plus was not having to pack up and move every few days. The laundry service was a blessing and meant we could travel light.

The meals were mostly traditional and were well prepared. Dinner around the fire was a great way to end each day.

The boat trip along the banks of the Olifants River overlooking the Greater Kruger Park was a highlight and a great way to end our safari.

Learning about the wildlife conservation projects Mopaya Safari Lodge supports and seeing the results of the work they do to protect Cheetahs and White Lions was a life changing...
