One of my favourite places on earth
We spent one night at Mohlabetsi two years ago on a 7 day trip round South Africa. My family didn't want to leave but we always had in our minds to return to this very special place. This time we booked for 3 nights and it was absolutely wonderful. The people, the safari, the animals, the food, the lodges are just perfect. Mohlabetsi will always hold a very special place in all my family's hearts and will definitely go back again one day. I recommend this lodge to anyone!

A truly superb safari experience!!!
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!!!

O Hotel e sua equipe conseguiram superar todas as nossas expectativas (que já eram altas)! A comida é simplesmente maravilhosa, as acomodações são super confortáveis e o tratamento que recebemos foi espetacular. O Hamilton (motorista dos nossos safaris) e o Sowly (tracker) foram sensacionais e acharam todos os animais que queríamos ver. Recomendamos muito esse hotel.

Gemütliche, familiäre Lodge im Greater Kruger Park
Wir haben zwei Nächte hier zugebracht und unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Das gesamte Personal war ausgesprochen freundlich uns zuvorkommend, durch die geringe Zimmerzahl ging alles sehr familiär zu. Die Game Drives in kleiner Gruppe am Morgen und am Nachmittag waren super und wir hatten tolle Sichtungen. Das Rondavel war etwas rustikal eingerichtet und sehr gemütlich. Alles war gut gepflegt und sehr sauber. Frühstück, Mittag und Abendessen im Boma sehr lecker. Die Lodge ist ohne Einschränkungen zu empfehlen!
