Travellers' Choice
Mosetlha, nestled right at the heart of Madikwe Game Reserve and its only genuine eco lodge and authentic bush camp, is unfenced, rustic and intimate. Comfy beds in raised wooden cabins, oil lamps, traditional bush meals prepared on the open fire, a donkey boiler for hot safari showers and twice daily game drives in open 4x4s with expert guides, promise you a true wilderness experience. Come get the dust of Africa on your feet ...

Forget the 21st century, internet, electricity, loadshedding, and go back to very much simpler times when nothing was fast, quick and convenient. You're in the real bush, surrounded by the big 5 and all the magnificent creatures that make this unforgettable. Thank you, Jonny, for phenomenal cheetah and lion sightings and Caroline with all at Mosetlha who make this eco lodge a unique bush camp experience.

I had the most incredible three days here. I LOVED the fact there was no Wi-Fi or phone signal and I had no contact with the outside world. Jonny, the safari guide, was phenomenal and found us the most amazing wildlife. He was head and shoulders above the other guides we saw at the more luxurious lodges and we always seemed to be in the best spot at the perfect time. We saw so many lions, rhinos, elephants and other animals up close and even watched a pack of wild dogs kill and eat an impala. The fact that the guides can drive completely off road means that you see so much more than at a lot of other game parks. Caroline was the loveliest host and I have nothing but positive things to say about her. This is a real back to nature experience that is like nothing else I’ve ever done. The food was fab and gave us the opportunity to try real South African food. If you are high maintenance and want a 5* luxurious experience where you can check your emails, this is not the place for you. If you want an environmentally friendly and sustainable experience that you’ll never forget where you can hear lions at night from your bed, definitely come here! I wish more people knew about this place as I think it’s so great for mental health and getting away from the hustle and bustle of working life. I’m back in London and missing this place already - thanks for a great stay!

Dear Fiona Thank you so much - so good to hear from a busy, professional, millenial that no wifi or signal is a plus. Jonny is phenomenal ... and is a bit of an animal whisperer when it comes to anticipating their next move and positioning you in the perfect spot for the perfect sighting. It's all very well to be Madikwe's best kept secret, but you're right, we definitely need more people to know about us ... for the sake of their mental health :) Look forward to having you and Mark back with us when you can. Thanks and best eco regards Caroline Lucas

Mosetla is a beautiful camp! It gave me the experience of really connecting with wildlife and I will go back again and again. The food was delicious and the staff are very friendly. What's better, the game viewing at Mosetla is unmatched and we saw some of the best sightings we'll ever see while staying there. Our ranger was exceptional and really raised the bar for other rangers in Madikwe and around the world. Incredible sightings every drive and I would love to come back! Highly recommended!

No frills, but if you're looking for a genuine bush experience with amazing game viewing then Mosetlha is for you. Expect comfort food, simple comfortable rustic accommodation, oil lighting and safari showers. This is really an Out of Africa experience. I'm a repeat visitor and will certainly go back again. Sit by a crackling fire and watch stars as you may never have seen them, then lie in bed and listen to hyenas whooping, a wandering elephant trumpeting, wild dogs yipping and night birds calling. Urban life is a million miles away.

What an amazing experience! Some of the best game I’ve viewed with an extremely knowledgeable guide complemented with a wonderful stay. Spent a magical few days with my family experiencing a sustainable, deeply relaxing (and exciting) African holiday. The eco-friendly, authentic lodge makes it truly memorable. Thank you Mosetlha- we will be back!
