    We stayed just for one night. The food was really of a high standard. The lodge is beautiful and the service great. The rooms are big and very luxurious. We had a good night's rest. I would recommend Moditlo River Lodge to anyone.

    Worth a visit. Service is great, staff are friendly, the food is very good with generous portions. The game drives are very good with very capable spotters. Meals are structured around the game drives which makes them late (9am, 2pm, and 8pm).

    Thank Alex B
