Some photos of Mosu Lodge

The only critique I can give is that they should possibly give one chairs to use outside the unit…we had to use the fancy chairs that were inside…I think they might get damaged if everybody do this.
Further I have just praise for Mosu Lodge…5 star all the way!

Hi Stricks,

I have no pics of Lilydale but just some info: Lilydale is lovely with chalets overlooking the Riet river! However just bear in mind, Lilydale is not connected to the bigger Mokala yet. The park is still busy expanding so if you want to do lots of game driving you have to drive all the way to Mokala. It is quite a long drive, gravel road to the main tar road and then a few kilo's to the turnoff to Mokala and then a gravel road to the park. I guess it would take about an hour... depending on your vehicle and speed on gravel roads (Lilydale is actually very close to Mokala but there is one private owned farm separating them so you have to drive around).

There is very little game on Lilydale so if you want to see buffalo, rhino, giraffe, roan then you need to go to Mokala and then it will be best to rather book at Mosu Lodge or camping at Haak en Steek.

If you just need a place to stay over and relax with views of the river and do some birding then Lilydale is very nice!

Hope this helps!

Can anybody give me any info on Mokala Park. We are planning a trip in December.

Is it too hot? or will we get caught in the rains?
Do they have self-catering?
Is there a shop to purchase stuff?
Can you drive a saloon car?
What sort of birdlife can you find?
Are there any man eating predators?

Thanks
Deborah

Hi and welcome to the forums Deborah!

Have a look at this page: Mokala, that may tell you all you want?

A fairly recent tripreport was written by Boorgatspook, and can be found here.

Enjoy!

Accommodation.

Now for Haak-en-Steek rest camp you can click on the small photos here, and for Mosu Lodge here. That last link is a little less deep, there are 3 options

And just in case you are a birder: birding in Mokala by one of our Guru's.

There are two slightly more expensive self-catering chalets at the front, which have a nice view of the kalahari thornveld. I'd advise trying to book those if you can. The other rooms (which have no kitchenettes) tend to look out on the back of other chalets with only small bits of view in the distance. The camp is not a new one built by Sanparks, but an old hunting lodge that they took over on the property. Obviously hunters place less emphasis on a view than we game lovers! It's still a lovely camp, though, with friendly staff. Well worth doing the night drive too - probably your best chance ever of seeing an aardvark.

Thanks Matthys, We are on our way from Prince Albert to the Kruger in our motorhome and wanted to stay over somewhere different. We usually stay at the Big Hole in Kinberley but have chosen Mokala. I just hope that the road to the camp is okay. I ruined a previous motorhome on the poor roads around Kleinzee.
