Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge is centrally situated, making an ideal base to explore the Balule Game Reserve. It is extremely accessible, being only 7km (4.3 miles) off the tarred R40, just north of Hoedspruit.
This places it en route to or from the Panorama Route and the Blyde River Canyon, via the Abel Erasmus Pass. The Kruger Park is also close by, with both Orpen and Phalaborwa Gates being about 80km (49.7 miles) from the lodge.
