Sticks asked in another topic for photos of Lillydale camp (wich we unfortunately did not visit) and i then realised that there is no topics on accommodation in Mokala, in fact not many topics on Mokala at all

So have decided to start a few

The rustic cottage and its lapa:

As far as I know this is unfenced, not so JB?

Have you had any sightings while there?

Yes Christo you are right this is an unfenced camp. Unfortunately there were a lot of water in the veld so the animals did not really use this dam... some zebra & red hartebeest did however visit the dam and we found some giraffe not to far out of camp.

Two panoramas I stitched together during our visit to Mokala.

Please note that when clicking on the thumbnail a large image will open. These large images are both in excess of 2MB.

Hi JB,
Great to get some info on Mokala as it is a park that I'd like to visit in the next year or two. I'm particularly interested in the camp site, as I enjoy dragging my caravan around the countryside. Are the roads fairly easy or do you need a 4x4? Loved the pics

Hi Jakkalsbessie,

Do you have any information about Mosu Lodge in Mokala because we are going there at the end of March and I just wanted to know if it is a nice lodge?

Thanks,

Samantha

Hi toktokkie,
I can really recommend Mokala... it is a stunning little park and you will have a great time.
The camp site is wonderful with lots of shade and a nice dam infront.
No need for a 4x4 the roads are in a good condition.
Only problem is when it rains a lot, then those muddy roads can become quite slippery and a nightmare... but when that happens (like when we were there) they closed some of the roads.

Thanks for the info Jakkalsbessie, we normally do our long trips in September as we have found that most places have reasonably good weather in that month with little rain. It is sometimes quite cold but we don't find that a problem. Some places also a bit dry, but also not a problem. Looking forward to visiting Mokala in the not too distant future.

Hi,

Can anybody tell me what I can do about a fridge in the Semi Luxury Rooms in Mosu Lodge

Our food is going to go off.

Thanks,

Samantha
