We stayed at Mohlabetsi for two days. Everything was top-notch, from the greeting as we arrived at the Lodge, to the farewell upon departure. The setting is wonderful, with a large green lawn under shade trees where a lovely lunch was served upon our arrival (as we gazed at the giraffe in the reserve just a few yards from the lawn). The room was clean and comfortable and we especially enjoyed the outdoor shower. The pool was clean and refreshing after the morning safari drive. As for the safari drives, this was our first experience, and Richard and Doc went out of their way to provide us with the best possible experience. They were extremely knowledgeable and provided so much insight into all the different animals and birds and their habitats. And we could not believe how close they got us to lion prides and elephant herds. Really close. Scary close sometimes. After the sunset drive, we were treated to a delicious meal around the fireplace in the outdoor BOMA, where all the staff were extremely attentive and we enjoyed lively conversation with the other guests. I highly recommend Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge on your next trip to South Africa!!!
