We had a great long weekend at Mopane. Its the best base to use if you want to explore the Mapungubwe area. The accommodation is excellent, the hosts are warm and charming and the food is outstanding! Its not often you experience gourmet dining around a campfire. The tours of the site, the rock art and the Park were outstanding. Highly recommended.

What a delightful little oasis! Extremely helpful and competent staff. Exceptional owners who remain involved and a manager par excellence! Supper in the boma is a special and very intimate experience. We will definitely return.

Mopane balances excellent service with homely comfort. The food is great, the small staff compliment ensure you comfortable, the rooms are private and well appointed and there is a pool to cool the Limpopo Valley heat. By far the most outstanding feature of our stay was Andrew (part owner and manager), he is a wildlife specialist who is well informed about and involved in the Mapungubwe district. He is a natural storyteller with a passion for what he does and enabled us to make the most of our stay.
