A very well run camp well located in geographical center of the park. A true eco-lodge so not for someone wanting air con or to spend time on internet rather than enjoying where they are. The camp is not truly fenced but does have wires at elephant height to keep them out - pretty much anything else can wander through...

One of the best experiences I had in Africa. Staying dead-center in the Madikwe Game reserve, great lodges and atmosphere in the camp. Seen all the big five during our stay, sometimes literally just outside the camp! This is not your luxury 5-star Spa resort, this is as ECO-friendly as possible and you get the feeling you are part of...

Thank you Monica, Chris, Justice, and the staff of Mosetlha. We had an amazing 3-night stay in the lodge. It was a relief to be off the grid, to talk with the intimate number of guests, to savor the amazing food and, of course, to go on the unbelievable game drives with Justice. We learned a lot on this trip...

Small, wonderful, ECO, can't imagine why go anywhere else in this reserve. Really good food as well and great game drives. We saw all of the big 5 in one day! It's not your typical 5-star hotel, so it's maybe not for everyone, but you do feel closer to nature, one morning there was a buffolo, literally 2m from our...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
