some word about us


Moditlo River Lodge sits at the heart of the Blue Canyon Conservancy, a stretch of protected land near the world-renowned Greater Kruger National Park and is home to an astonishing array of fauna and flora.

Named for the gentle beast of the bushveld, Moditlo means ‘place of the elephant’, and the quiet grace of this extraordinary creature echoes throughout the lodge and its surroundings.

At Moditlo we maintain the wild surrounds in which we humbly inhabit. 
Moditlo is a celebration of the abundance and variety of animal, bird, and plant life that you’ll find in the diverse landscape of the Great Kruger National Park.

Relish your stay in our classically chic accommodation and enjoy the beauty of our glorious slice of African heaven.

The Lodge

Designed to provide guests with an authentic, yet luxurious African safari experience, the Main Lodge is a spacious structure of warm, natural wood and thatch with ample verandas that wrap around our various dining and entertainment areas. Here you will find a crystal-clear swimming pool, restaurant, curio shop, communal lounges and bar.

Stroll from your room down the meandering wooden walkways to enjoy a relaxing drink beside the pool as the heat of the day settles on the bushveld soil and take a moment to drink in the stark beauty of the African continent.

Alternatively, get comfortable in the lounge and take advantage of the complimentary Wi-Fi to catch up with your social media and share your holiday pictures.

Dining with us is a relaxed affair that is tailored to our guest’s individual requirements.

Lunch is long, lazy and luxuriously delicious. For dinner, our restaurant – Medium Rare – prepares a feast that can be served in the thatched dining area or around the campfire in our open-air boma. Settle in for the evening and watch as our inspired chefs prepare delicious South African dishes to tempt your taste buds then wind down the evening with a drink around the crackling fire.

Sport and news enthusiasts will be happy to know that although we steer clear of televisions and other distractions in our guest rooms, we do have a private lapa with satellite TV where big matches and other important events may be viewed.

Enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, a glass of wine or a post-meal digestif in our stylish cocktail lapa. Here, guests can watch the sunset as they sip and savour their choice of beverage under the attentive service of our professional barmen.

The Rooms

Sumptuous accommodation can be found in our 18 luxurious rooms, each set at the end of meandering walkways that link to the Main Lodge. Built in accordance with our conservation policy, the locations of the rooms as well as the raised walkways were carefully chosen to ensure that our presence here has the least possible impact on the environment.

Relax in understated elegance, in a cool, calm oasis of crisp, white Percale linen, gentle air-conditioning and utter privacy. Our spacious rooms are the perfect retreat for a refreshing afternoon nap, undisturbed evening slumber and the private decks are an ideal setting for an invigorating morning coffee or peaceful nightcap.

Sink into a soothing hot bath in the free-standing tub to enjoy a nice, long soak after your game drive or open the blind fully by your shower and enjoy your own private view of the surrounding terrain.

Each room is fitted with a coffee station, personal safety box and mini bar for your convenience and comes stocked with a range of high-quality guest amenities. Our discreet staff are on hand throughout your stay to maintain your room and assist your every need. Should you require it, you also have the option of having a ranger to escort you to your room in the evening.
