Mopaya’s exclusive Wildlife Discovery Programme includes safaris
in 20,000 hectares of ‘Big Five Private Game Reserves, a boat
safari, as well as unique trips into the Kruger National Park,
where it has special authorisation to use private trails and also
to exit game vehicles to view wildlife up close. Children over 7
years old are welcome.
Mopaya Safari Lodge and Nokana Safari Camp are located on their own private game reserve with 3,000 hectares of traversing rights around the lodge and a further 17,000 hectares of prime ‘big five’ game drives including the famous 12,000 hectare Thornybush Game Reserve.
Mopaya and Nokana also offer unique photographic safaris in the Kruger National Park with special authorisation to use private trails and also to exit game vehicles to view wildlife up close.
Horseback safaris on the 3,000 hectares around Mopaya and Nokana.
Overnight adventure at Bateleur Bush Camp for riders and non-rider alike. This is a special treat for clients who wish to spend a night deep in the bush.
Mopaya is a charming lodge with large tents set on varnished terraces overlooking the bush and traditional rooms with air-conditioning and beautiful sunset view. Accommodation consists of suites and double rooms with mini bar and bathrooms. The Lodge caters for no more than 24 guests at a time.
Nokana is an eco-friendly camp located next to a seasonal river (Nokana in Sotho). The camp is set near a big dam, under beautiful leadwood trees and knobthorns. We use solar panels and recycled wood and have just 5 small domed tents for 10 guests. There is a large tent for the kitchen, a bar, dining room and lounge, outside showers, inside shower and toilet.
Nokana’s rate is 50% less than Mopaya’s.
A fenced area of 11 km around the Lodge and the Camp, with 45 km of private tracks allows secure bush walks and peaceful horse back safaris, whilst avoiding the lions, leopards, hyenas, wild dogs and cheetahs that stay on the Reserve or come to visit from time to time.
