My stay at Mohlahbetsi was nothing short of incredible! I really enjoyed the family type atmosphere that they had. Everyone seemed to get along really well and they were all collectively extremely eager to make sure that their guests wanted for nothing. Their attention to detail was exemplary and in everything you felt welcome. I went alone and they made...

Everything was excellent. Friendly and engaged crew overall. The safaritours was exciting and our guide was very good. To see wild animals is an extraordinary experience. Driving in the bush surrounded by big elephants is so cool.

Greeted with a warm welcome. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious and tastefully decorated. Lovely touch is the outside shower. Really gives you the feel of being in nature.

We are just back from Mohlabetsi after a four day stay there. The place is very nice, the people extremely friendly, the rondawels on the lodge excellent (aircon, big fan, al fresco shower...), the food more than decent and the safaris twice a day with kind and knowledgeable rangers (Hamilton and Nico are amazing) the experience of a lifetime. We...

Beautiful stay at Mohlabetsi. The staff are kind, attentive and deliver impeccable service. A very family-oriented lodge. I enjoyed my stay but there may be more suitable lodges for young solo travellers. Our ranger Lucky and tracker Richard did an incredible job of ensuring we had good sightings on each game drive. The only one of the Big Five we...
