We spent two nights in this beautiful lodge. The food, especially the lunches were very good and the views from the dining area and lounges are really spectacular. You could see an elephant walk by or herds of impala grazing. The accommodations were not luxurious but the room was spacious enough. There is a sink in the room itself and...

Intimate, comfortable, superb service, highly skilled trackers and guides - got us out of the path of a charging bull elephant very smartly! Room for improvement: It would be nice if ranger guided walks were available - as a form of exercise and to experience the bush without engine noise.

This was our third visit, prompted by enjoyable previous visits. This time we felt that the package had slipped somewhat in that the schedule was rushed and the staff, while still good, had lost something in the way of presentation. The Shangaan rangers are knowledgeable but not very communicative and the game drives too rushed in an effort to tick...

An absolute relaxing place with high standards of everything actually. From the lodges to the poolarea, dining areas (3 of them) and the safaris which are included. Very good food with a wide spread variety of the menue. Drinks at very reasonble prices that everyone going there can afford. Cleaning in the rooms and all the stuff very serviceminded. They...

My wife and I have never been to South Africa before, let alone on safari. As we planned our trip, we found Mohlabetsi on tripadvisor, and contacted them. They were so helpful in booking the bus ride from Joburg, as well as communicating with us. While we were there we felt like we were in a paradise. Amazing staff, great...

Everything about Mohlabetsi was terrific. Meals were tasty and plentiful, kind staff, great room and common area. We had Lucky as our guide and loved him-although we heard good things about Carl, Sam and Hamilton as well. Our favorite part of the day (besides the game drives) was dinner around the boma (fire). The room was perfect-decorated nicely, had a...

From the moment we arrived, we were graciously welcomed and treated to lavish meals, wonderful lodging, and 6 incredible game drives with Hamilton and Doc (who also introduced us to the southern African tradition, the "sundowner!). We found the Big 5 and a myriad of other fascinating animals. The weather was warm and pleasant and we were lucky enough to...

We had never been on a safari before and were not sure what to expect. We stayed 3 nights and went on 6 game drives. This lodge was only a 30-40 minute drive from Hoedspruit airport which is a big plus. The people who work here are so kind and patient in explaining the different animals and their habits/habitats. They...

We spent three nights here in February. It is a pleasant lodge and well run. The rooms are comfortable and have air conditioning. The food is acceptable but nothing special. My reason for the rating was for the safari experience. This is very much a destination for people who have not done a safari before. It is geared to showing...

We stayed at Mohlabetsi for 3 nights in February 2017. Every part of the service, rooms and the freindliness of the staff was excellent. With Mohlabetsi being quite a small lodge max 20 guests, you do get to know the other guests and share experiences, as well as the staff are able to offer a high level of service to...
