This was our first safari experience in South Africa and what an experience it was. I cannot say enough good things about Mohlabetsi Lodge and its staff. We had the privilege of spending 3 nights here. The accommodations were inviting and clean (love the outdoor showers). The overall setting is absolutely brilliant, you can spot wildlife just by sitting next... More

It's such a special place, a great combination of relaxation and peace to allow you to unwind, and action packed safari drives. We had some great sightings - all the Big Five plus hyenas and cheetah, all within touching distance! Loved the open air vehicles. The food... More

Everything from the staff to the rooms and the wild animals that roam here - it was amazing. Just perfect. I highly recommend this lodge. Monkeys roam the grounds, elephants come in, so much wildlife.
