This place is very special, very quiet and personal, relaxing and chilled between game drives. The lodge accommodation is lovely and exactly as per the photos, the food was also varied and delicious. The highlight was the twice daily game drives, Humbu was Brilliant, he made our Safari something very special, he clearly has a great sense of where to...

I stayed for 2 nights to go on safari after a business trip to Johannesburg. Lovely little lodge --- each guest room is its own structure which allowed for privacy. Only complaint is that they asked about my dietary restrictions ahead of time and I told them I am gluten free but they didn't really make a clear effort to...

For some other activities in the area we can arrange a hot air balloon safari to watch the sunrise over the reserve, quad biking through the southern section of the reserve, archery and more! Please request from reservations when making your booking, alternatively bring your swimming clothes for some cocktails in the pool :)

Morokolo Lodge was a really really great place to stay, the staff were easy-going and made us feel very welcome. We had 5 people stay in two rooms.
