During September 2017 I was fortunate to spend a weekend at Mabula Lodge. At the age of 53, this was my 1st safari ever. What a wonderful surprise and experience. The accommodation, friendly staff, friendly tour guides, excellent food, safari drives, everything, everything was 10/10. I have only 1 complaint: My time at Mabula Lodge was too short. If it is God's will, I hope to see Mabula Lodge in 2019. Thank you Mabula Lodge for making the weekend one to remember.
