ABOUT MOSETHLA BUSH CAMP & ECO LODGE +
PILANESBERG MANYANE RESORT
PILANESBERG MANYANE RESORT
Mosetlha is family owned and run, a rustic and intimate, unfenced Bush Camp nestled at the very heart of Madikwe. The simplicity of open fire cooking, no electricity, safari showers (with hot water!) and raised wooden cabins lets you escape real life just for a while and appreciate a genuine bushveld experience.
This is the Reserve’s only authentic bush camp and genuine eco lodge – the unpolished gem in Madikwe’s crown!
Game drives twice a day through the entire Reserve in open 4x4's with professional guides give you the opportunity to enjoy the fascination of the wilderness and a true safari adventure.
It is the Owner’s mission to provide you with an exclusive and unique wilderness experience. In order to ensure guests their best possible attention, they accommodate a maximum of 16 people in nine double cabins.
The camp is unfenced and guests are accommodated in true safari style in raised wooden cabins set amongst the natural vegetation around a central camp fire and lapa area.
Cabins have partly open sides and are arranged in adjoining or detached double rooms with twin beds and simple amenities. Duvets, pillows, blankets and towels are provided by the camp.
Whilst bathrooms are not en-suite, they are essentially private – fenced toilet/shower complexes are discreetly situated amongst the cabins. As this is an eco lodge there are no mod cons such as electrical power or running water - the showers are safari showers and water is heated through a donkey boiler … so you only have a cold shower if you want one!
Catering is of a high standard and all meals are prepared in the traditional bush style on the open fire. Included, too are tea, coffee, fruit juice, rusks, fruit and snacks throughout the day and on your daily walks and drives. Drinks are sold at a nominal mark up and not at usual "hotel" prices.
It has always been the Owner’s mission to provide an exclusive and unique wilderness experience for their guests, with minimal ecological impact on the surroundings.
Day 1 - 3
Pick up at 06.0am and head to Madikwe Game Reserve where you will be met by a North West parks game ranger and transferred to a game vehicle. You will then proceed to the Bush Camp where you will be looked after by the extremely competent staff at the Lodge.
Check out of Mosethla Bush Camp around 11am and head for the Pilanesberg National Park where you will check in at the Manyane Resort before continuing your adventure at this different but exceptionally beautiful park. (Please look at our Pilanesberg safaris for information on the Pilanesberg Game Reserve and accommodation there).
Arise around 05.00am for coffee and light snacks before heading into the reserve. We return to camp mid morning for a late brunch. The remainder of the morning may be spent relaxing by the pool. We then go on a short drive to where you will go on a late afternoon drive guided by a Northwest Parks game ranger in an open game vehicle. The drive lasts about 3hrs and can be cold after the sun sets so please bring a warm jacket for this. After you return, you will have dinner at the resort or one of the Lodges.
We wake early and you can choose to go on an early morning walk either conduct a walk with a Northwest Parks game ranger or go on a drive. We return to the resort, check out and then make our way back to Johannesburg arriving at around 17.00pm.
