Mosethla Bush Camp is for lovers of wild life, caring for the environment and the wildlife within it. It is not the sort of game lodge one visits for haute cuisine, the swimming pool, the decor, the air conditioning and en suite facilities. But wow what a fabulous experience. The reception is not quite your normal hotel. Monika showed us...

Mosetlha is a wonderful place. Superbly run by Monica the camp manager. Very comfortable, welcoming and ideally located in the middle of the reserve. Our guide Jonny was brilliant. Always in the best place, at the best time for the best sightings and photo opportunities. He has amazing knowledge built up over nearly 20 years at the lodge. And a...

The Mosetlha bush camp has been our family's favourite place to view game in South Africa since we first visited in 2003 when our two boys were still youngsters. There was something about the overall experience that just spoke to us and it's been dear to our hearts ever since. In addition to the comfortable lodging, the excellent staff, the...

Dear JBURGBarbara What a lovely review - thank you so much!

The Mosethla bushcamp is a great way to experience this beautiful game reserve. The rooms are basic but quite romantic and in fact everything you could need is there incl. solar lights and a mosquito net. The staff is great, very helpful, knowledgeable and caring. What we liked most was the "schedule" with meals, game drives, and time to read...

Just returned from a lovely relaxing weekend at Mosetlha! It poured with rain pretty much from the moment we arrived to the moment we left - which was so great for the area as rain is desperately needed - and we only managed one drive out of three as a result. But this was actually a blessing in disguise as...
