My son and I stayed in this place for one night before we went to Hoedspruit. Anthony was very kind answering many questions I had before I left home, and Andrew and staff did everything they could to make us feel at home. Dinner was excellent, even though they did not have about 1/4 of what was in the menu....

Anthony and his staff were all very helpful !! We only had 1N stay here, but we loved it. The place is close to the airport, which is why we booked it as we wanted to drive to Kruger the next morning. For a decent price, we had a huge room, with a huge plasma TV, and the room was...

A friend and I spent the first day, and the last day, of our safari trip at MoAfrika lodge. It's 10 minutes away from the airport, but looks like much farther away once you get there. The staff is very friendly, the food and drinks are inexpensive, and the accomodations are good. It's a very rustic setting, with chickens, geese,...

Stayed at Moafrika after a 6 week overland tour. Needed somewhere to chill out and book the next stage of our holiday while waiting for a flight to Europe. This place was perfect. Were expecting a backpackers but this place was more like a nice hotel. Huge double room, really modern, comfy lounge and all the staff were so great....

The location is pretty much out of the way. If you driving yourself make sure you arrive in daylight. Near airport so that is a definite plus. The staff are incredibly friendly but not really trained well. When arriving it is confusing, no signage no one to greet you and therefore it's pretty uncomfortable. Its on a farm (careful where...

If you're looking for an authentic local flavor in place of a generic airport hotel, MoAfrika near the Jo'burg airport should top your list. They've got a free shuttle, free internet, a wonderful breakfast and personalized service that includes stopping by your computer station while you're working in the early evening to take your dinner order. The meals are outstanding....

What Mo Africa has going for it: reasonably priced, near the airport (with free shuttle), quiet location, fairly modern facility. However, there were some issues with operations management during my stays (August 2012). First of all, the staff was just a bit too layed back to be running an operation like this. Several times, after ordering breakfast an hour earlier,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to MoAfrika Lodge. MoAfrika literally means 'African People' in the language of the local Sotho populace, the original inhabitants of the Highveld. Your host, Anthony, has skillfully created a unique lodge in which an African theme induces a warm welcome for guests. Set on a 8000 square metre land through which a stream flows, MoAfrika Lodge provides a rustic and tranquil setting where guests can unwind in a relaxed and country atmosphere. Why book yourself into a Hotel or Guest Houses when you can stay here at MoAfrika Lodge? MoAfrika Lodge has evolved from Anthony's place which has been operating since 2006. MoAfrika Lodge offers comfortable and stylish accommodation. Our rooms are spacious and are tastefully decorated in a truly African style. A large dining room and lounge flow unobtrusively into the cosy bar area. Guests may unwind around our sparkling swimming pool and enclosed wooden deck. MoAfrika Lodge is very conveniently situated less than 10km from Johannesburg Airport, O.R Tambo. ... more   less
