Ezra Khosa
The trip was well spent and accommodation was nice, we didn't feel the heat of Mopani, We enjoyed it.
Louise Kingston
We really enjoyed Mopani, The staff were very friendly. Will definitely stay at Mopani again.
Billy Cochrane
It was 41.5 degrees when we arrived, and climbed to 43 degrees at 7pm. The camp is well set out, with a spectacular view of the water from the bar deck. The heat obviously affected all the game, but we saw elephant and buffalo.
Hardus Wolvaardt
Thorough enjoyed our time in the Kruger as well as staying at Mopani rest camp, would definitely recommend it to any future travelers!!!

Very happy with accommodation. Very pleased to discover that the Kruger shops in the camps now have a range of products for sale so that it is not necessary to do pre-arrival shop
It was our first return to the park in about 12 years. I was pleasantly surprised with the friendliness of staff,the accommodation was superb and the shops well stocked and very reasonable priced. must be yet again one of the best holidays I have experienced in my life. well done to all!!!
We really enjoyed our stay at Mopani. It felt like a real holiday with pioneer dam overlooking our chalet and clean and neat apartmentThe kids loved the safe atmosphere and the pool was very welcoming at the end of a long day.We saw lots of lion, 60cm water monitor lizard and a metre long rock monitor lizardOverall, even though it was far from everything. It was a very enjoyable stay.And I won't hesitate to go back again.
we had such an awesome experience from Mopani especially Emmanuel.

tarynne lucas
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Andrew Else
We stayed for 2 days and found Mopani accommodation to be excellent.The meals at the restaurant were great however the service was rather slow.
The down side is: the camp is a little bit far for the center and not many animals around. However, the most friendly helpful staff and really clean nice environment around the camp!
Ross Smith
Mopani is a smaller camp in the northern part of the park. Saw Lion, Cheetah and Hyena plus elephant, hippo, crocs plus all the bucks especially kudu, eland and water buck and luckily silver backed jackals. The camp was clean and quiet with great service.
Louise van Wyk
The park is in an excellent condition and the animals look good. Mopani camp is fantastic.
Gerhard Swart

Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautifully situated. restaurant has wonderful sunset views.

clara costa
Although furnishings a bit dated very clean and very comfortable - a true bush experience in perfect surroundings!! service excellent!
We had an excellent time in Kruger . Service great and camps well run. Our favorite was Olifants with the view in to the river.
ALda waddell
Thank you. All was good, clean and neat.
Diane Robertson

Noeline Bonner
Blissful! Stunning as always.
Sasidhar G
Accommodation provided is absolute value for money and I would definitely recommend people to opt this tour.
Sandra de Kock
Beautiful cottage with view over the river. The cottage was spacious and clean, but the entrance was somewhat far from the parking bay, which required quite an effort to carry in the luggage and food.
Norris Fisher
Staff were friendly and helpful. Restcamp was clean, neat and comfortable.
Very happy to stay at Mopani. Great accommodation and fantastic swimming pool, very welcome after a long game drive. Restaurant very good food, service and of course spectacular view.
Vutlhari Phumulani
We enjoyed the stay at the mopani rest camp and we are hoping to come back. There's nothing bad which we have found about the camp. We also enjoyed the night drive at the park.
It is so wonderful to be in Kruger National Park. The service of high standard.
R Janse Van Rensburg
Very nice, every thing clean and comfortable. A bus full of people arrived and started singing for the rest of the afternoon(only negative comment).
janette maribeng
Very nice. We have really enjoyed visiting this place
Pitso Masooa
Excellent hospitality from staff and cleaners, true value for money. will certainly call again soon!!
Mike Sander
Excellent accommodation, very well appointed and comfortable, Beautiful view. Staff were helpful, pleasant and well trained. The restaurant was attractive and the meal we enjoyed was very well prepared and presented.
Kerry Davidson
Would return here! More animals than we were told to expect, including two leopards, a bunch of tsessebe and Roan antelope. Highly recommended!
Usha Athimakula
Mopani rest camp with lake view is one of the best places to stay inside Kruger park. beautiful lake views with animals coming for water in the morning. one can watch crocodiles in the lake. beautiful birds too can be found. its neat, well equipped and comfortable.
Michael Martin
Beautiful setting and lovely dam in front of restaurant.
Liliana Ivan
Very clean park; lots of animals at the water holes around it; good restaurant.
Colleen Hampton
We were given a bungalow/cottage overlooking the river which was so lovely and scenic. The bird life around this cottage was wonderful as we had a baobab tree right next to the veranda. The cottage itself was clean and tidy and there were all the appliance you need for cooking. We really enjoyed our stay even though it was only for one night. We would differently stay there again.
bernard goldman
One of the best camps we have been to.
Menno Hensen
Nice camp, lodge was situated very well. although the accommodation was clean (but little bit old), maintenance could be improved; e.g the bathroom became moldy.
Nice place to stay. Good house, clean. The manager was very helpful by solving a holiday problem.
melanie Jong
We only stayed in Mopani for 1 night. The camp was good, house was ok. It was nice and clean, the shower was nice and hot. The a-la-carte restaurant food is really good! We didn't see a lot of animals driving up to this camp.
Noeline Bonner
We enjoyed our stay in Kruger park immensely! Hooked for life! Loved all the camps we overstayed. Can't wait for next time.
Amy du Plessis
Thank you we had a lovely stay.
Marius Venter
Nicole Kok

Vladimir Mihajlovic
It is a well looked after Rest Camp, with courteous staff. Very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.
Ansie Kilian
What a lovely guest house and the view was extraordinary!! Everything was just out of the book.
Mopanie is 'n rustige kamp het baie lekker gebly sal weer gaan.
What a nice experience!
Anasuya Pal
The stay was a good one: comfortable accommodation, clean and functional. The bunk bed was reversed so climbing on to the top bunk was hindered.......but on the whole good.
Ansie Prinsloo
Being our last camp to stay over it was a bit sad to leave. This was also the only camp that did not allow us to book in before 14h00 but the nice restaurant made up for the two hours wait. We will definitely go back again to the Kruger.
Food is not up to standard - dissappointing and really embarassing if you take foreigners into account. Air conditioning in my room was not working properly. Ladies bar is pleasant and well furnished. Lounge is an impersonal and unpleasant space.
Mariaan Terblanche
Dankie Mopanie julle het n pragtige kamp die huise is baie netjies kry nog die bosgevoel met die oop kombuis.Die restorant het puik kos die ander kampe kan daar gaan leer kos maak als is smaaklik en vars.Sien uit na die volgende besoek
Good view from the chalet
JMW le Roux
Only one night, but privacy of the guest cottage and immediate surroundings is very enjoyable.As in other camps, staff are very helpful and friendly and cottage neat and clean.
Alison Burden
The park is very different in summer to our normal winter visits. It is more peaceful and we enjoyed the park at a quieter pace. Our chalet was secluded and very quiet. The staff were great, everything worked in the chalet which was clean and tidy. We did not want to go home. Will try to visit again in August. Thanks Kruger, stay the way you are.
Riaan henning
The view was absolutely beautiful, looking as the sun set over the dam, hippos playing in front of us! Entertaining us with there snorts and little ears! Thank you
Very nice clean accomodation and food actually available in a restaurant. Thank goodness we spent two nights in this camp and only one in the other three camps with no restuarants.
Michael Luke
Great Camp...with the best views ever!
Paul Nienaber
Overall, good service. Nice atmoshere in the camp.
Rene Rossouw
Our stay was great. Mopani camp is well run. The Restuarant jut needs to jack up the service. Waiter battled to understand us and did not know what was on the menu.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip after our booking agent Tanya Lomas went out of her way to secure the camp we wanted. The bush was lovely, the roads are well maintained, the game is in spectacular condition - the only blight during our trip was the sorry state of the camp restaurants. Satara's restaurant used to be the highlight of our trip and we were sadly dissapointed at the state it is in. The restaurant at Letaba was out of stock of Castle and Coca-cola and could not accept a bank card. The Train restaurant at Skukuza is now being run by a foreigner (? - how is that possible?) and his people skills leave much to be desired. The prices at this restaurant are also totally over the top - once does expect to pay a premium but his proces are just ludicrous. However the restaurant and service at Mopani Camp was EXCELLENT! Take note though that the kitchens in the guest-cottages are only stocked with the bare minimum of crockery and I would suggest that if you are planning on braaing or cooking any casseroles, you should take your own pyrex dishes along.
Themba Zwane
Exellent customer service.
Did not enjoy our stay. Family cottage that was given was under water, We gladly moved to another unit, but was told we had to move on our last day.. We are there to rest not to be moved around.. So we left our last day and lost a night. Dont think i will be back there in a hurry. Restaurant cannot cope with big volumes of people. The whole experience was not what i had in the previous times we were there.
Ngwako Machethe
We enjoyed staying in this camp, the problem was abt the guest cottage, it was too many for us cause it was two, wereas we were just six adults and two children
Letaba was very neat and very friendly staff
Risimati Reckson Sithole
It is such a breath taking experience to venture into Kruger National Park. The reception is warm and you are treated to the royal style
Lauren Murraylauren murrayL
Hi guys, our stay at Kruger was freakin' brilliant, thank you!!! Mopani was the best. we were fortunate to see so much and the park is in really good condition. thank you for an invaluable experience! will definitely be back soon, very soon!!!
Rumani Patrick
No TV's in the rooms, hidden costs like everyday gate fee and game drive.
Francois Oger
Sydney Theko
My family and I had a nice time in Mopani rest Camp. The guest cottage was lekker and the receiption was good too. The only thing that did not impress us is the single beds in all the rooms - That was not ayoba! I mean how do you expect a couple to sleep in there?Game drive also disappointed us because we saw small things like rats, bets, camelion, etc. We saw all the big animals when we were driving around on our own. My expectation to pay these huge amounts for a game drive would be that it is guaranteed that you are going to see at least 3 of the Big 5.
John Mcginn
This was the camp we saw the least in
Kate Stubbs
This was the first time my family had ever stayed at Mopani. We loved the camp and its facilities. Loved the privacy of our hut, loved the fact that our kids had bunk beds in a separate area and that the unit could sleep 4. Our bungalow was spotless and perfect. The privacy of the surrounding bush was also fun. All in all, Mopani is now one of my favourite camps.Only suggestion would be to somehow provide more viewing areas of the beautiful dam. Thanks for everything though. Can't wait to return.RegardsKate
I and my family had a wonderfull stay at Mopani camp. I am plaaning to book for 3 or 4 days next year.We were very much impressed. Keep it up Sanparks

Gail Henry
Mopani camp has beautiful surroundings, but customer service can improve. The maintenance in chalets & cleanliness can be a lot better. The restaurant was good but stock in the shops could be more efficient. Pool area was brilliant. Otherwise a very nice camp but could be exceptional with a few improvements. Replace toilet seats etc.
Juan Weidemann
The Mopani rest camp was amazing and a lot of fun, the camp and its accommodation was 100% and we enjoyed it a lot thanks.The only problem we have is that the menu of all the camps are the same and we think that it can be changed.

My experience with booking my Southern Africa tour with was amazing. The Safari Consultant I was working with (special shout out to Keagan Davids) was the most helpful, responsive, polite and awesome person to work with. I originally tried to book a safari holiday with a local agent in Australia and was getting nowhere fast. I decided to do some leg work myself and put a request in for some advice on It was the best thing I could have done! I only wished I had planned my first half of the holiday with given the ease and expertise they have provided. I highly recommend their service - you will not be disappointed!

Simply The Best
We are now home from our trip and am writing to thank you for organising such an amazing adventure. We cannot fault anything about the trip from start to finish. Buffalo Camp was fantastic - the accommodation, the food and the hospitality too but most of all our game drive guys who were awesome. We saw the ‘big 5” and more. Slon and Forest went above and beyond to find the animals we wanted to see. Then we transferred to Victoria Falls River Lodge and became part of a family. I can hardly find the words to describe it. From sitting in our plunge pool watching a crocodile swimming up the Zambezi to our helicopter ride over Victoria Falls and everything in between. What a beautiful place run by beautiful people. We were invited back by both Buffalo Camp and Victoria Falls River Lodge and hopefully we can do that in the not too distant future and if it becomes possible we will not hesitate to use again. We truly recommend your services. Once again, thank you for organising the best holiday we have ever had and one we shall treasure forever. Best wishes.

Pascal should be your Go-to consultant - 5 stars
Pascal was wonderful to work with. We wanted to stay in Sabi Sands during peak season and were having a lot of trouble finding a great lodge to stay in. Pascal was able to find us a lodge that met our needs, call the lodge to ensure they had the rooms we wanted, book flights, transfers, etc. and was very attentive and easy to talk to. He made sure to get back to us quickly and when he said he would. He was always available and I would recommend using him and to anyone looking into a safari in the future.

Superb short Safari
We were referred to through a UK safari holiday company. We were dubious at first about dealing with a company in South Africa but we found and in particular Mr Keagan Davids, very easy to comunicate with. He was very communicative and made all the necessary arrangements. Unfortunately, the safari lodge we'd booked got flooded out so Keagan found an alternative lodge Called Kapama River Lodge. It was great. Very nice accommodation. Great efficient and friendly staff etc. We were not disappointed. All of the arrangements went like clockwork so we'd highly recommend

Booking for Addo Elephant Park…
I made a booking for Addo Elephant Park through The instructions were clearly conveyed to me regarding the payment of a deposit to secure the booking. The service received from the lady I dealt with was very professional. For example, upon requesting a change in accommodation type, the request was promptly attended to and I was informed accordingly which I noticed was outside office hours. Proof of secured accommodation was sent promptly and reminder for payment of balance was send well in advance of final date. Finally, once payment was cleared, I received the booking voucher as well as forms to be filled in by all passengers upon entrance as well as the conservation fees to be paid. All in all it was a pleasure to deal with and we are looking forward to our stay in ADDO ELEPHANT PARK. Thank you.

Chantal Young was so nice and accommodating. We were between safari lodges and she really sold us on Dulini with her chill and approachable attitude. She gave us more than enough information while letting us feel like the decision was ours and was flexible to providing multiple options. Can't reccommend her enough!

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire team for this unforgettable trip.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks, Henry and Catherine!

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.

Nelia Nyamhanza
Nelia Nyamhanza, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly in designing our trip every step of the way. She listened to our request of places we wanted to visit and advised us on what best to do. This made the whole experience wonderful. Every guide from Ilios was eager to share their culture with us and are kind people, as well as, the guide/driver from Elephant Camp, Victoria Falls. We will recommend others to you so that they can be part of your amazing country.

Excellent service by the agent Jayson Scheffers (Africa Safari Expert). We had little idea of the place and things to do. He made it at all soo easy and planned it so well that it all went smooth. We had a baby with us so we were not sure about the things but he advised us well. All the hotels, pickups etc were well informed about our situation and we did not face any issues. He was always there to answer any questions 24/7. Very personalized service. Highly recommended.
