Mokoya Lodge is a gem away from the buzz of Pretoria and Johannesburg. It's bush veld ambiance contributes to the calm and relaxing experience whilst the food in the Thyme Restaurant is immaculate. The hosts are most helpful, friendly and accommodating. The buildings, garden and swimming pool are well kept and lying down underneath the willow trees on the riverbank was priceless.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Mokoya Lodge. Loved the peaceful and tranquil environment it offered. It was the best place to rejuvenate and reconnect. Just what the Doctor prescribed 👌👌We would definitely be visiting the Lodge again. The food from the restaurant was amazing, the rooms where forever clean. The hospitality from Hayley and team was welcoming. We left with high praises for Washington who was who was always on point and detailed. This is one private gem 💎 We will be escaping too when we feel like running away from the noisy city life. Thank you for the 5 Star ⭐️ Service

Most of the attractions are not very far from each other. We didn't have to drive so far for the activities.
