Rustic. Off the grid. African. If you’re looking for an authentic bush experience – few frills, if any – then you’ll find it at Mosetlha Bush Camp & Eco Lodge.
Madikwe’s second-oldest lodge is also one of the reserve’s unfenced properties, originally established as a training site for safari guides.
Today Mosetlha follows the principles of ecotourism, allowing guests to tread softly and responsibly. The camp has 10 raised wooden cabins (ask why they’re raised when you get there), set around a central lapa, campfire and dining room. Your nights are lit by oil lamps. By day you wash the African dust off your feet in a safari shower.
Game drives are long – and intentionally so. Qualified field guides lead the safari in comfortable, open 4×4 vehicles, spending about four hours in the bush. After dark, spotlights are used to look for Madikwe’s more elusive nocturnal beasts. It’s real, and it’s truly African.
Mosetlha Bush Camp accommodates children aged 6 years and above.
