Tolle Zimmer, wunderschön.
Sehr nette Leute die da arbeiten, dass war es dann aber auch schon.
Das Essen ist ein schlechter Witz. Man gibt sich dabei gar keine Mühe.
Der Welcome Drink wird mit 0,30 Euro berechnet - bei einer Lodge die 300 Euro kostet !!!! Was soll dass ??? Getränke auf den Game Drives mussten ebenso extra bezahlt werden, was auch erst auf der Rechnung auffiel.
Kleinigkeiten die einfach negativ auffallen und nerven.
Die Game Drives an sich waren Ok, aber eher für Safarianfänger geeignet.

È un Lodge con poche stanze molto accogliente e immerso nella natura. Ci si sente quasi a casa...due ragazzi che lo gestiscono sono veramente disponibili e professionali. È un punto di partenza per visitare la zona più remota del pilanesberg np

Lodge très bien entretenu. Chambre spacieuse, propre, bien décorée, douche intérieure + extérieure et baignoire. Salle commune avec TV, billard,.... et à l'extérieure jacuzzi et petite piscine. Le restaurant est situé dans un autre complexe à 5 min de voiture. Service et nourriture de qualité. WiFi disponible au restaurant. Game drive effectué matin et soir. Egalement possible de réserver des safari à pied avec un ranger.

We enjoyed everything about our stay at #16 Black Rhino Lodge. Dian, our Game Driver was so knowledgable and kind. We saw so many more animals up close than we ever expected. The food was awesome and our lodge was stunning.
We were lucky to be able to spend two nights in the wonderful Morokolo lodge. The managing couple Jacqui and Riaan did a wonderful job and made us feel at home big time. We enjoyed the spacious room with the wonderful bathroom and outdoor shower. Showering under the stars or in the glistering sun is already an experience. The game drives with Riaan who is passionate and extremely knowledgeable about wildlife were a true treat. We found elephant, rhino (black and white) and a lioness with her three cubs, among the other wildlife in the bushy Black Rhino Game Reserve. It's great to have this private game reserve for the guests only. Dinner and breakfast were served in the Black Rhino Lodge, just 1 km away. Quality and variety of the food was wonderful and the boma dinner a great experience. A true hidden gem in Pilanesberg National Park and worth the visit every minute!!!!
Our safari guide was best driver and game spotter. All service was excellent. The room (lodge) was really nice, bed was good to sleep in. Really liked the separate entertainment lodge. Restaurant services and entertainment were excellent.
Had some trouble finding our way with given instructions (neither GPS positions nor address worked well) but that was probably due to bad quality navigator provided by the rental car company.
We didn't know what to expect, but already at the main gate where we checked in we sensed the easy friendliness of the staff. The camp was really nice, we loved our cottages and the luxury bathroom and out-door shower. Our ranger had great knowledge and respect for nature, we learned a lot and it was just amazing to see all the lovely animals and the great landscape of Pilandsberg. The restaurant was excellent, situated near a waterhole. All staff really friendly and serviceminded. Great value, we will be back for sure. Our only regret was that we only stayed for two nights.
My husband and I spent 4 days at Morokolo of our two week honeymoon in South Africa. Our time at Morokolo was definitely the highlight of our trip. From booking to arrival our interactions with Jacqui were outstanding. All of our booking emails and questions were answered within hours. We were greeted at Moroklo with warm towels and champagne and from there, it just got better and better. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and clean, complete with an outdoor shower and beautiful soaker bathtub. The grounds staff were friendly and helpful (especially when a little lizard found his way into our room). Jacqui and Riaan were perfect hosts, so kind to us throughout our stay, even preparing a special candle lit surprise in our room in honour of our honeymoon. The food at Morokolo was terrific (all served at the Black Rhino Lodge). The portions were huge and the wait staff were very accomodating (be sure to write down the names of your servers and take some separate envelopes for tips for them, which you can give at the end of your stay). We were very grateful to the restaurant for accomodating our food allergies without a problem. No request was too much. The pool at Morokolo was very refreshing and the snacks and drinks at the bar were great, all self-serve and on an hounour system.
However- the highlight of our trip were the game drives. We saw so many beautiful animals, lions, elephant, giraffe, impala, warthog, kudu, monkeys, wildebeest, birds and many more precious creatures. Riaan was informative and really made a huge effort to ensure that we saw the best game possible. I will never forget the drive in which we saw a lioness hunting and almost catching a warthog. Truly a once in a lifetime experience. We also did a walking safari with Jean Ray and it was so incredible to be out waking right in the middle of the Pilansberg. Don't hesitate. Book at Morokolo. You will not be disappointed. We cannot wait to come back again soon! Thank you Jacqui and Riaan.
As we only had a short time available to experience the wonders a Safari can hold we were pleasantly surprised by Morokolo Game Lodge. Our guide Robert was very knowledgeable on the wildlife in the area and his enthusiasm for what he does made our experience even better. The lodge gave us a feel for what it would be like to take a pricey safari as the accommodations were lovely. I would recommend this highly for a first time experience, great price and overall pleasant staff who met all our needs.
For the pool side there should be more sunbeds . If all clients would like to sunbath or just relax, there are only 4 beds for 8 clients. Suggest also to put a few chairs and a little table in front of the lodge.
Our family of 5 (kids ages 14, 11, 8) just returned from a 3-night stay at Morokolo. Every aspect of our stay was fabulous for all ages! Game drives, accommodation, food, service - everything! Riaan is an extremely experienced and knowledgeable guide who clearly loves his job. The rains only delayed some of our drives but we missed nothing and the skies cleared beautifully every day. The setting of the restaurant is exquisite, the food is quite good and the waitstaff are all friendly and fantastic with kids. We will all remember fondly when we arrived for our evening dinner after an exciting game drive to 20 or so elephants frolicking in the watering hole at the restaurant. What a treat!
Had a very good stay in a very well run property by people who go our of their way to be helpful and make your holiday memorable. Would recommend this property to those who wish to see game with people who are very considerate to all the animals. A great time was enjoyed in a comfortable environment.
Very nice lodge with all comfort. The rooms are spacious the bathroom as well with a very nice bath and an outdoor shower. Great game drives in fantastic game park. Robbert was our driver and he was just fantastic. The meals in the main lodge are very good and you can sit out side with a view on a drinking pool. So spotting wild animals during your meal. What more can you wish for?
