For terrific wildlife viewing and wonderful lodging, this is the place. You are treated to sumptuous meals, exceptionally comfortable lodging in traditional rondovals, and a really nice pool to cool off in on a warm afternoon.

We had three nights at Mohlabetsi and loved our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and well furnished. Loved the out door shower with monkeys in the near by trees. Each meal was very nice. I would recommend this lovely safari place to anyone.

Beautiful private game lodge. Food was excellent, staff was wonderful. Everyone very attentive. I stayed only one night at the end of a safari but wish it had been longer. Attention to detail was lovely including a hand written welcome note.Furnishings and finishes in excellent taste. Even the gift shop was spectacular.

Mohlabetsi was recommended to us and was an amazing experience. Besides the game drive I didn't really know what to expect but each day was perfect and we were very well taken care of. The guides and staff were great. Loved lunch and dinner times as both meals were outside with a great ambience. My only regret is that we...

I stayed here with friends for one night at the end of a five-day safari. It was a beautiful lodge with stunning views over the reserve and amazing accommodations. We had a welcome cocktail and then had lunch overlooking the reserve, served under a tree which was very pleasant. Dinner was around a fire, and was great. The accommodation was...
