Mavela was a marvellous 3 nights of bushtastic fun, rest & good food. Andre, Chantelle and staff were overreaching in their hospitality. My wife and I will spread the word and keep a special place in our heart for the bush lodge of Mavela.

What an awesome time at Mavela, we love the bush and have been to many reserves and on many game drives. Our Mavela Game drives we rate the best of all, lions up close was the highlight and we much appreciate it. Special thanks to Brad for all your knowledge and skills you are a excellent ranger.

So glad to have chosen Mavela to bring our friend Helen to spend a few ‘bush’ days with us & all the catering done for us – so deliciously! Everyday, every drive so different & rounding. Fantastic birds & a lioness & others. Admiration for Andre’s birding ID skills & knowledge – birds in flight nogal.

Mavela is the best place I have ever set my eyes on. Andre's eyesight and zulu is incredible. The fact that we saw a lion so close is terrifying. My heart beats so fast when I think of Mavela. The pool is divine in summer. Gonna miss you, see you soon.
Special thanks to Chantelle, Brad and all the lovely ladies who made our stay a superb one.
The puma won, stripey donkey second with a close third of the giraffe and finally the dung beetle. Awesome seeing the cheetah as well.
