What our guests have said about this accommodation

Bokke Pretorius
Pragtige uitsig, al wat kort is 'n TV en oe die pad, kan die regering nie iets daaraan doen nie.

We had a great time at Lilydale Mkala. All the people were most pleasant and helpful. Thank You.
LIndsay Ross
A thoroughly enjoyable stay. The chalet was clean and immaculate, and the game was in beautiful condition. We had a couple of lovely dips in the pool, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole stay.
Louise Britz
We were a family that was looking for a place to get together. The quality of the chalets were better than we expected although I stayed in one of the more updated ones. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would like to thank your friendly reception/kitchen staff and unobtrusive cleaning crew for it.Louise
Daniela Kucich
For a family of 5, the chalet offered excellent value for money. The view over the Riet River was superb. Our game drive with Jarryd proved highly educational - the children loved interacting with him. We enjoyed 2 sightings of rhino, one with Jarryd and one when we were (alone!) on our way back to Lilydale from Mosu Lodge. I found your little shop rather sad from the point of view of international visitors wanting to take something away as a reminder. Otherwise, many thanks to Carien who personally recommended Lilydale and very kindly changed our booking from Skukuza to Lilydale at short notice.

The stay was very nice, only problem were some of the electrical fittings in the Chalet were not working.
Frances Greathead
My family and I thouroughly enjoyed our weekend at Mokala Park. We had pleasant,clean and comforable accomodation at Lilydale Camp. We saw plenty of game and found the experience great as it is not over crowded at all.
Anneke Hirsch
We have spent one night at Lilydale. The National Park really impressed us. It is well equiped and clean and the location is beautiful. The dirt road from the main road is just painfull to drive to get to the entrance. We enjoyed ourselves.
Clinton strydom
A lovely alternative to the big game parks. Our stay was great - staff were friendly _ Accomodation was comfortable (only thing i may have included is a few couches in the unit )
Koos Breytenbach
We loved the Mokala National Park. It is well run, accommodation is excellent and the peace and quiet wonderful. Will definately go there again.
