Dear Bert and Massodini. Many thanks for the hospitality and excellent service. My friends and I enjoyed our holiday in Massodini this april. Sweating staff, delicious food, spacious beautiful chalets. Special thanks to our ranger who conducted the game drives. And swimming in the pool and watching the watering of the elephants is just incredible. we will definitely come back for the third time. See you soon! Thank you!

Bert and his team (Leann, Lee, Delinda & Wanda) are phenomenal. Our game drives were awesome – saw the big five and so much more. Leann is an expert guide and has uncanny spotting abilities. Masodini Game Lodge is a very authentic South African experience. Lee is an amazing chef and the food was outstanding. Our entire stay was perfect. We felt like family at the end of our visit and didn’t want to leave. Definitely above and beyond our expectations.

Together with some friends, we organized my personally first trip to south africa. Within this trip, we spent 3 nights at Masodini Private Game Lodge. The Lodge is directly located at the Kruger National Park and you really can have a great experience with the nature. When we arrived at the lodge, the Sabine and the whole Masodini Lodge Team welcomed us and the service and the hospitality was so great, that I never had it before. The whole team is excellent and you can directly fell in love with that place and the team. Furthermore, the food of Rebecca and their team is so tasty. You will definetly enjoy it. We have done some Game Drives during that time and I really can say, that I was fearing all the time, that I was dreaming and that I will wake up soon, but I was really there. I can only propose this lodge to everybody, who is interested in the nature and the local animals and who wants to relax but also experience something great. Thank you, Sabine and the whole Masodini Team. Bianca

Just a perfect stay in Masodini Lodge in the middle of Balule reserve. Sabine and all the team were so friendly and helpfull. Rooms are very cosy and confortable; and public space too (the pool close to the fence...you can see elephants while swimming !!!). Safaris provided by the team were also an amazing and unique experience
