Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge

There’s Magic at Mohlabetsi

Jacques and Nina invite you to experience the magic of Mohlabetsi. Situated in the vast Balule Private Game Reserve, which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park, this is Africa at its very best! A timeless place in the heart of wild Africa where nature rules and we are fascinated observers. A Safari is an ancient African word meaning a journey and this is the perfect venue for your travels into Big Game Country!

Mohlabetsi is the local African name for a small stream or “spruit” that flows here. It means “Place of Sweet Water” and weary pilgrims would be drawn to this wonderful location to enjoy refreshment. Nothing has changed over the aeons of time and even today we welcome travellers from around the globe to our sanctuary.
At our small, intimate Lodge, with only 23 beds, guests are assured of serenity and unobtrusive attentiveness, combined with an intimacy with nature. Come and be especially close to the African Spirit here. The Lodge is easily accessible, yet one enters an entirely different world once within the camp. Life slows down to the rhythms of nature and the rising and setting of the sun dictates our movements. The emphasis here is upon close-up encounters with Africa’s spectacular wildlife, from the mighty elephant, the impressive lion or the minuscule termite. But, paired with this, is the assurance of your comfort in our 4 star establishment, decorated in true South African style.

Our pride in personal service will guarantee that your stay with us will be a memorable occasion.

Special times, special safari memories.

The Bush is calling & we are ready to welcome you on a safari holiday you will never forget! Expert Rangers, spectacular Big 5 sightings & a wilderness wonderland await you. Families welcome. 

Lodge

Mohlabetsi is a Lodge steeped in tradition. The original camp was built circa 1960 and over the years has been expanded, modernized and improved to where it is today – a luxury Lodge, pampering guests from around the world and endorsed by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa as a four star Game Lodge.

Game Drives

Our rate includes an evening game drive as well as an early morning safari too. Each excursion is different and there is no way of forecasting what your Ranger and Tracker will find for you. Every encounter and every experience is completely different. We have 12 000 ha (think of that as 12 000 square football fields!) of traversing area, giving us a myriad of options of what to look for and where to look. Of course, the Big 5 is important but there is so much more on offer! The Greater Kruger area boasts 149 mammal species (remember, many of these include a huge variety of small rodents and bats), as well as a spectacular variety of birds (our local count is more than 260 different sorts), along with an impressive amount of reptiles, insects and vegetation types.

We use specially modified Toyota LandCruisers for our drives. Renowned for their comfort and reliability, they are able to conquer even the most difficult terrain. The 10 seater vehicles are completely open to allow for unrestricted views of animals and birds, trees and the stunning stars at night. You will be amazed at how close we are able to approach our quarry, to ensure unforgettable memories of your safaris with us. And this is what makes a game drive such a unique part of your holiday.
Our personable guides keep up a commentary during the drive, interpreting and informing you of the sightings. Their knowledge and unique relationship with the bush will ensure that your game drive is both a sensory and educational experience. They are also in radio contact with a number of other vehicles to maximize game-finding opportunities.
