This new safari lodge is a small gem in that it is a small family owned and run establishment with only seven luxury tents for a maximum capacity of fourteen guests. Even so, service is wonderful and the food is prepared fresh for every meal. At one point there were only three of us at the lodge and yet full service was given to us. We felt very pampered indeed! The owner is on the premises and often helps with meal service which is always very good and served with a smile. The "tents" are beautiful, new, thoughtfully appointed and even offer air conditioning! There is a nice pool with beautiful deck loungers from which you can observe wildlife if you are lucky. Both a tracker and a driver are at your disposal for the game drives. They were excellent and went above and beyond is search of the wildlife and I fully credit their expertise and will to please with finding the big five and many, many other animals, often accompanied by informative and very interesting narrative. We will remember Little Africa as a favorite experience and would not hesitate to recommend this lodge to anyone looking for a wonderful experience in a cozy, personalized environment.

Our stay at Little Africa was just perfect: Leandra the host was very welcoming and we could feel at home right from the beginning. The whole experience provided by the Little Africa Team could not have been better: - Food and service were excellent during our whole stay - Sleeping in a tented camp made us even more connect with the surroundings as you could here animals nereby during the night - The game drives provided were perfect. Our two guides Mateo and Never are very experienced in tracing the animals but also have a lot of knowledge about the flora and founa. We did overall 8 game drives together with them and the covered all the big five and listened to our requests. For example I asked if hippos live in the reserve and the coffe spot at the next morning was at a pond with hippos :) - The Moditlo private game reserve felt like the perfect mix of having enough animals around but also giving them enough space. Overall I would fully recommend a stay at Little Africa and if I get the chance I would also come back.

We are a well travelled couple around the world. Second time at a safary lodge in SA, and we can proudly say that this lodge was the most wonderful experience we have ever had. Starting from our amazing stuff - our guide Never, of tracker Mateo and.our beautiful host and lodge owner Leandra. Thank you, guys for a memorable experience. We saw all the big five, and much more - Chitas, a crazy kill, many birds, Hippos, Hayna, you name it! We would definitely come back, hopefully next year. A lodge that is like a family.

My husband and I had an absolutely amazing time at Little Africa! Leandra is such a wonderful host - we were well taken care of the entire time. The lodge is stunning - it is a luxurious experience that still makes you feel connected to the beautiful land and animals in the reserve. The tented rooms were awesome! The shower was so cool - everything in the room was of great quality. We felt so cozy and relaxed. The food was so good - every meal felt like a cozy home cooked meal. They even set up a lovely table for us for dinner to celebrate our honeymoon. The drives were so so so awesome! Never and Mateo were our guides, and we had so much fun with them. We saw EVERYTHING. They are so well educated on the bush - we learned so much from them about the animals, plants, and climate. It was such an amazing experience. I highly recommend Little Africa to everyone!

We had wonderful days at Little Africa. Together with our two sons (teenagers), we were welcomed very warmly by Leandra and her team. The tents are fully equipped, comfortable, brand new and beautiful. Leandra is a perfect host and she did everything she and her team could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The food was fantastic. The game drives from the lodge were well organized and our two experienced guides always managed to guide us to the best places to see the 'big 5' (and many other interesting animals;-)) Our children couldn't get enough of he guides' wise lessons about animals, tracks, etc. In short: a fantastic place if you want to get to know the beautiful nature and animals of South Africa and relax at the same time!

Sometimes you book a place and it appears to be the Jackpot! We arrived with the family (two boys 15 and 13) and were warmly welcomed by staff upon arrival. We booked two 2-person tents which were totally new, clean, and of stellar quality and atmosphere. We had a fabulous stay for three days and we were taken care of in the best ways possible, everything well organized, good food, and two game drives a day. Our very pleasant and knowledgeable guides did everything they could to make sure that we would see all animals we could (yes, we got 'the 5') and kept our kids nicely engaged. If you have second thoughts about booking a tent, do not worry as there is a solid fence around the camp. Concluding, a fantastic place to spend a few days in the bush, with good value for money.

The Lodge Little Africa is just what we were looking for : private, intimacy and simple. Our host Leandra share with us about Little Africa Lodge, the reserve and the impact she and her family wanted to have on this kind of tourism. Her team, Vonnie our Chef, Mounya and our 2 guides Denis and Mateo made our stay fantastic . We highly recommend Litte Africa Lodge

Leandra is an amazing host. The facilities are just what we wanted. It's a small camp and very personal experience. Leandra and Alvesion were incredibly accommodating with the menu preparing delicious and abundant selections. Our guide and tracker team of Jika and Gaswell were amazing - knowledgeable and friendly and they worked very hard to find animals (small and large). Bottom line - GREAT experience and highly recommended

Family Owned and operated, this little gem provides an exceptionally high standard and warming service. Situated within an 11,500 hectares estate, Little Africa has direct access to the World of game viewing at its best. Comfortable and quality furnishings add to the overall experience of home-from-home, but deep in the African Bush. Food is prepared with skill, maintaining that all important traditional African cuisine, alongside European dishes. Helpful and cheerful staff, who go out of their way to assist. Top marks Little Africa!
