I had last been to Madikwe a number of years ago although I have referred lots of others to this wonderful eco lodge in Madikwe. I found nothing changed. Still as quiet, peaceful and hospitable as always. The game drives were outstanding with Kgomotso going out of her way to ensure a memorable experience on each drive. Great value for... More

This eco lodge exceeded all our expectations - only 16 guests, great fun making your own hot bucket shower, delicious fresh and tasty meals served communally so you get to know the other guests, true bush experience with no electricity so no distractions - just the sounds of the bush, cold beer and conversation. Superbly managed by Monica - best... More

We spent four wonderful days at Mosetlha Bush Camp. Apart from the amazing variety of wildlife, expertly guided by Justice, the facilities were first class. The staff were all extremely attentive and helpful. The food was of a high quality - my own dietary requirements were met. The eco lodges were particularly good, open sides ensured that the sights, sounds... More

I had the opportunity to stay 2 nights at Mosethla and go on 4 drives with them. Not only were the guides knowledgeable, but they also were able to get us to spots where you were up close to all of the amazing animals of the reserve. The living space was clean and taking a shower that I hauled my... More

This place has great hospitality and unique amenities. We got to try delicious authentic food prepared by the amazing staff. Caroline was very helpful in and around the camp. Shout-out to our driver Johnny for finding lion cubs (twice), wild dogs, and a leopard It was a blessed trip with beautiful sunrises and sunsets that we will never forget.

Mosetlha will forever be my home. They have an amazing staff that work hard to make your stay unforgettable. In particular, the safari guides have YEARS of experience at the reserve. I have no doubt that they could find work at any of the other places at Madikwe. You know that if a camp attracts that kind of expertise, they... More

Loved every minute again. Our return to Mosetlha with more family members did not disappoint. I prepared them for no electricity and a fantastic time and they all loved it too.
