Moditlo River Lodge in Hoedspruit
Moditlo River Lodge sits at the heart of the Blue Canyon Conservancy, a stretch of protected land in close proximity to 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.
Our 16-bedroom lodge was designed to combine the rustic nature of a bushveld retreat with the style and elegance you'd expect of a first rate safari destination. Visitors can look forward to every comfort and convenience, including game drives conducted by passionate, knowledgeable nature guides, a full-service restaurant that serves the very best in South African wines and cuisine, as well as al fresco boma barbeques prepared by our talented chefs.
Families with kids will be happy to know that we welcome children of eight years and older. Youngsters can partake in a special activity plan to increase their wildlife knowledge and are also allowed on game drives at the manager's discretion. Alternatively, we are happy to arrange a private vehicle for your family's exclusive use.
Don't delay, book your safari at Moditlo River Lodge today and prepare to be transported to a world of unspoilt beauty, where luxury meets rustic splendour.

Reviews for Moditlo River Lodge
World class Game Lodge concentrating on their excellent level of service, accommodation and cuisine. Make a point of also visiting the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre and doing the elephant experience and a game drive at Camp Jabulani in the Kapama Private Game Reserve across the road.
A quiet peaceful place, the animals are just around your house. You gonna love this place.
My wife and I stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful time.I would recommend the Moditlo River Lodge its a great experience you wont regret.
Higgly recommended. Everything was quite clean (no bugs or animals inside the rooms), the food is good and the employees are rather kind. The game drive was amazing: first day we saw the commin animals (giraffe, impala, baboons, rhino, hipo, kudu, etc) and the last day we saw the king of the jungle eating a wildebeest!! We missed the leopard but we'll try agaim next time.
My family and I had an amazing stay. Lovely large clean modern rooms, and a beautiful lodge in general. The staff were brilliant, friendly and accommodating.
