The rooms were clean, and comfortable. The food was excellent. The Safari Rangers were extremely nice polite and very well-educated and if informative about everything you wanted to...

I stayed here with friends for one night at the end of a five-day safari. It was a beautiful lodge with stunning views over the reserve and amazing accommodations. We had a welcome cocktail and then had lunch overlooking the reserve, served under a tree which was very pleasant. Dinner was around a fire, and was great. The accommodation was...

Great place to stay at. Awesome guided tourr/safaris. Food and service was very good. The rooms were lovely, clean and neat. Very quaint with the shower placed directly outside of the room in a secluded area. Highly recommend it.

We had a truly amazing time. The setting, the rooms, the safari drives are glorious but it is the staff who make this lodge extra special. Doctor and Karl inspired our children with what I am sure will be a life long love of animals and everyone else kept them happy with delicious food, songs and smiles.

We have just returned from a short 3 day stay at Mohlabetsi and are still trying to process how amazing our stay was. Everything exceeded our expectations including the lodge itself, the location, the animal sightings on safari, the staff, the comfort of the room and the comfort of the safari jeeps, the food, the shop and the pool. We...

We had a very short stay at the Mohlabetsi, but we had an AMAZING time! Staff are super nice and very caring, going to great lengths to accommodate us. Our group required halal food and whenever the kitchen wasn't sure, they'd check with us to make sure the food we were getting was OK for us. Moreover, things are super...

I have had a fantastic three days at the lodge. The accommodation, food and the staff were all excellent, as were the game drives. Overall I couldn't fault this beautiful place and wish that I had stayed another couple of nights. I will certainly go back there as soon as possible and thank you again to all the wonderful staff.
