“Worth a visit. Service is great, staff are friendly, the food is very good with generous portions. The game drives are very good with very capable spotters. Meals are structured around the game drives which makes them late (9am, 2pm, and 8pm).”

“We stayed here with the family and enjoyed every minute of it. The lodge is amazing and staff could not be more friendly. The staff made a birthday cake for my son and sang a traditional song for him. We found the lodge to be very accommodating to our dietary needs (a special mention to Chef Brian who was amazing). The daily safaris enabled us to see the most amazing views, not to mention the experience animals in their natural settings. Our guides, Erelio and Derek were very knowledgeable and always tried to get the best vantage points to see the animals. Amazing.”
“Could not recommend Moditlo highly enough! The personal experience and close encounters with the Big 5 animals, and so many others. The staff are amazing, absolutely phenomenal! Everything about Moditlo makes you want to never leave. Thank you THANK YOU for having our group and blessing us with so many memories to never forget.”
“Our group of four friends had a brilliant time at Moditlo. All the staff, especially Thuli, in and around the lodge were fantastic – cheerful, helpful, efficient, ready to have a conversation and join us in jokes and laughter. Our holiday was made perfect by our field guide, Petro, and his trackers, first Bennet and then Carswell. They are skilful and so knowledgable. Thank you Petro for being such a great teacher and for giving us the most amazing viewing experiences during our stay. Wish we could come back tomorrow but might have to wait a year or two!”
