Mosetlha is family owned and run, a rustic and intimate, unfenced bush camp nestling at the very heart of the magnificent Madikwe Game Reserve. We are this Reserve’s only authentic bush camp and genuine eco lodge – the unpolished gem in Madikwe’s crown! It is our mission to provide you with an exclusive and unique wilderness experience. In order to ensure guests our best possible attention, we accommodate a maximum of 16 people in nine double cabins. The camp is unfenced and our guests are accommodated in true safari style in raised wooden cabins set amongst the natural vegetation around a central camp fire and lapa area. Cabins have partly open sides and are arranged in adjoining or detached double rooms with twin beds and simple amenities. Duvets, pillows, blankets and towels are provided by us.
Whilst bathrooms are not en suite, they are essentially private – fenced toilet/shower complexes are discreetly situated amongst the cabins. We pride ourselves in our bushveld simplicity and do not have mod cons such as electrical power or running water – our showers are safari showers and water is heated through a donkey boiler … so you only have a cold shower if you want one!. We believe our catering is of a high standard – we prepare all meals in the traditional bush style on the open fire. Included, too, are tea, coffee, fruit juice, rusks, fruit and snacks throughout the day and on your daily walks and drives. Drinks are sold at a nominal mark up and not at usual “hotel” prices.
Discover the rich and fascinating secrets of the African bushveld, with our skilled professional guides who take you throughout the reserve and offer you the chance to experience spectacular up close and personal sightings of the Big 5, the famous wild dogs, all other SA predators, a multitude of fat and healthy plains game and 340 bird species. Game drives twice a day through the entire Reserve in open 4×4’s with professional guides, give you the opportunity to enjoy the fascination of the wilderness and a true safari adventure.
The wildlife is extensive and impressive. With the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and both black and white rhino) plus the extremely rare and endangered wild dog and cheetah and almost any other predator you can think of, a multitude of plains game and the latest bird list of 340 species, Madikwe has earned its place as one of the most spectacular game viewing destinations in Southern Africa.
Mosetlha Bush Camp Reviews
“Everything was positive on our 3 night stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the drives were led by professional guides with knowledge in everything. We managed to catch the big 5 in just one day actually. The food is all taken care of and there are books, magazines and games to entertain yourself in between drives.” –Matthias V
“Its our second time at Mosetlha and this place is outstanding. We saw all the big five and a lot of other animals. The staff is wonderfull and the cooking is fantastic. We also like the relaxing atmosphere and also that you meet people from all over the world. Thank you all for taking so good care of us. We will come back. Lars and Kerstin Sweden” –Lasseswe
“The camp is fantastic and gets you right back to living with nature, although basic it is comfortable, peaceful and the food was fantastic. They have a wonderful arrangement which makes this an Eco lodge but with lovely touches, like the honesty bar! The game drives were phenomenal, we had only four drives and saw the ‘Big 5’ and so much more, our guide Kgomotso was exceptional. We can’t recommend this enough, forget the hotel style safari and go here.” –Ian T
