What an amazing place and one of the best experiences of our lives. The lodges were spacious and very comfortable. Not one negative thing to say and no improvement to suggest. Safaris and bush walks were wonderful thanks to Alexander and Ben. We felt safe in their company and appreciated their knowledge and expertise. Thank you so very much.

Room tip: Pack light. Remember binoculars

With temperatures in the 90’s- 100 we were put in a cabin with only a broken fan to cool it. After numerous trips to reception and phone calls we were finally offered a different room the second day, but long after we were already in bed sleeping and with no offer to help us find the cabin in a very dark, unlite resort.

Room tip: Find a different resort!

Brilliant stay for our exclusive use conference. The staff were incredibly attentive, anticipating our needs ahead of time and were always pleasant. Would recommend for small business conferences or a group of families wanting some relaxing time in the bush.

Amazing, magical, spectacular.
Thanks to the guides, drivers, restaurant, bar and housekeeping staff.
Truly the holiday of a lifetime.
Clean, comfortable accommodation which is attended to 2-3 times a day.
Superb selection of food in the restaurant at all 3 main meals + afternoon tea.
Amazing chances to see rare and endangered creatures at a very close distance. Thanks Jimmy and Loewe.

Room tip: Go on as many game drives as possible. Every one is different.

We had the most amazing time at Mabula Game Lodge. We travelled as a family of 4 with a 13 and 11 year old. We had 2 wonderful rooms and every need we had was catered for. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate the kids and make it a magical holiday.
The safari was amazing and the experiences like horse riding, massages, quad biking were 10 out of 10.
The elephant experience was out of this world and totally unmissable.
The facilities in the lodge were great, the kids loved the pool and courts. The animals in the lodge itself gave us hours of entertainment especially the monkeys.
The rooms were lovely, the beds were comfy and it was really clean and safe.
The staff were all so friendly and accommodating nothing was too much trouble. Nadine, Martha and Lizzie were great answering all the questions we had and booking our experiences. Elizabeth and John in the restaurant were great and attentive beyond what was expected. We had a wonderful holiday with so many amazing memories made. We would return in a heart beat.

Room tip: The on-site shop is great, don’t take many formal clothes, warm, waterproof clothes are best.
