Reviews


It was our 2. stay in the Mokala National Park. It was again marvelous. Our wonderful Chalet Nr.2 was opposite the waterhole. All over the day and the evening we watched differnt kinds of spríngboks, oryx antilopes, warthogs, hartebeasts and other animals.

Mokala is a gentle peaceful haven - no predators, so the game is unstressed and relaxed. Booking in was pleasant and easy, our chalet was really comfortable, though could do with some sprucing up and the restaurant was excellent - particularly as the staff had to cope with load-shedding! All in all, a lovely place to spend a day or two.

Really enjoyed the stay. Highlights were the quality of the restaurant food and the friendliness of the staff. Punctuality of staff (excl front desk) was a problem though.

Another gem SA has to offer! What an amazing National Park - plenty of game to see. Staff exceptional - so friendly and helpful - accommodation great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We really enjoyed seeing many of the more rare antelope. The Camp was beautifully clean and the reception very pleasant. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was not being able to drive up to our accommodation to unload. However, we appreciate the reason being to keep the area around the bungalow in good condition. We also enjoyed the bird life very much.

Mosu Camp is wonderful - modern, with all the amenities, and a bonus is the floodlit waterhole, where we could watch the animals in the evening and at sunrise. The restaurant was attractive and the menu items well-priced and very tasty. The service was good and all the staff with whom we interacted were friendly and helpful.
