The lodge is about 6km from the gate of the reserve. Beautiful setting, supper polite and caring staff. Diner, delicious was served outdoor next to the fire. Game drive were rewarding, driver's were going out of they way to find wildlife.

The Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge is a beautiful place to spend your holiday there because your room is directly next to the animals. So you can chill in the sunbed and watch the animals. It's also good for kids because you do two safaris everyday. One early in the morning and the other one in the afternoon. It's very exciting!

first time to Africa so didn't bring my expectations. Loved the informal, comfortable family feeling of this lodge. Breakfast inside the lodge whose windows open up to nature, lunch on the front lawn under the shade of the trees, dinner outside under the stars - all in view of the water hole and the animals it brings. Accommodations were clean...

Mohlabetsi was the most comfortable and friendliest place during our trip through ZA. Small and familiar, polite staff, great lunch under the garden tree while facing the waterhole and obsering game walking by, at night high level dinners in the boma with open fire and fresjly roasted meat. Very friendly and helpful owners, great and informative game drives offered.

Our family stay at Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge was the highlight of our visit to South Africa. The game drives where outstanding offering us close-up encounters with lions, rhinos, elephants, buffalos, leopard, giraffes etc., etc. Our "drivers" Hamilton, Karl and Doktor made every effort to get as close to the wild animals as possible without distracting them. Also, they shared a...

Everything was wonderful from the initial reception, grounds, meals, amazing room, staff and owners! We saw all kinds of animals - even a leopard, which are difficult to find. The Rangers were all experienced, very knowledgeable and made everyday an interesting outing. I would recommend Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge to anyone who is considering booking a safari in or near Kruger...
