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.

I only spent one night here coming from Timbavati Reserve because I was unable to find an accommodation for 3 consecutive nights in the same Lodge. The accommodation is good. The game drives are also good but they were of lower level compared to the previous Lodge in Timbavati. Howver, I would like to point out that this may also...

as we are back now in Germany we are looking back to all our experiences in South Africa. Our stay at Mohlabetsi was great in all kind: a great lodging, excellent food and service and of course a breathtaking experience of all the wild animals in Greater Kruger Park.

We absolutely loved out stay at Mohlabetsi! They accommodated our family of 5 ( ages: 10, 14&16yo children) in a family interconnecting villa. It had a brilliant view of the waterhole! We sat reading and relaxing while watching a crocodile sun himself and giraffes and Impala come for a drink... The safaris were super exciting! We went on 6 safaris...
