The staff, food, service and setting are all fantastic. The hotel itself is beautiful and the private bungalow accomodation is brilliant. Every meal was amazing with a great variety of food and...

Our stay at Mohlebetsi Lodge was one of the best travel experiences of our lives. We arrived at the lush and pristine grounds and were greeted by friendly staff and refreshing tea at which point we were shown to our room, a private thatch-roof hut with lovely accommodations and an out door shower. There was a hand written note welcoming... More

Me and my family spent two nights with four safaris at the Mohlabetsi lodge. It was like being in another world, where no problems existed. Rangers spotting animals, the kids playing in the pool, great food, nice rooms and excellent service. The best part was when we parked in the middle of a herd of buffaloes, turned off the ignition...

Good package with one morning and one afternoon Safari. If you are lucky you get the Big 5 to to see. We saw on three out of four Safaris a pride of six to eight lions. Very friendly and attentive staff.

The huts are very nice and very clean. They are not too close to each other, so it gives feeling of privacy. The food was great and plentiful. Safari drives and the guides were very good and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our stay very much.

The Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge is a beautiful place to spend your holiday there because your room is directly next to the animals. So you can chill in the sunbed and watch the animals. It's also good for kids because you do two safaris everyday. One early in the morning and the other one in the afternoon. It's very exciting!
