I thoroughly enjoy my time in Mokala. I stayed two nights in Mosu and two nights in lilydale, I think this is how you should do it. Both camps are very different. Geographically Lilydale is really nice because it's situated on the river and surrounded...More

The landscape looks like Masai Mara - savannah plains. We saw several rhinos and large herd of buffaloes and antelopes. However, facilities need to improve. I suggest to visitors to get clear directions before you start. This is a large reserve and you can tired...More

We thoroughly enjoyed this gem of a park. Insofar as our game viewing is concerned, the predators are not all that important, so we do enjoy the ‘tamer’ parks immensely and Mokala gets a 5star! The public approach road to the Mosu gate is horribly...More

Traveling from Durban on route to the Kgalagadi, we decided to spend 3 nights at Mokala Game Reserve. It's relatively new (2007), but wow what an experience. First night at Haak en Steek, a thatched unit all to ourselves. Animals galore came down to the...More

This cottage was a real discovery. A secluded spot with a waterhole right in front of it. No need go anywhere but just to enjoy the birdlife and to watch the passing parade. There's no electricity but gas and solar panels are adequate for your...More
