Because I liked it so much the first time, I came back to the Moditlo River Lodge a second time, and it was even better than the first time:

- The lodge itself is gorgeous, cosy, super calm,
- The reserve is beautiful, a true bush landscape with lots of magnificent animals, and as a background the majestuous Blyde Canyon,
- The rangers and trackers are excellent professionals, always going above and beyond to find the animals, and always giving us their insights and knowledge,
- Staff, whether it is management, cleaning staff, cooking staff, waiters and waitresses are super friendly and nice, and they're all always there to fulfill any need quickly,
- The rooms are spacious, beautiful, well designed and perfectly clean,
- And the food is great,

So all in all, simply exceptional, this lodge has everything to have a fabulous time and live an amazing experience. Just go, and do not hesitate a second. Thanks a lot!

Loved everything about our stay at Moditlo! The rooms are luxurious, the food was excellent, the staff are exceptional- from the field guide and tracker, to the bar staff, to the management: every single person went the extra mile, and nothing was too much- they even baked me a cake and sang for me on my birthday!! I will definitely be going back, highly recommend to everyone!
