                  Because of the ongoing Corona crisis and the resulting travel restrictions, we had to cancel the stay. I have written to the accommodation several times, but have not received an answer until today. So, no recommendation from me!

                  Great hospitality and the perfect place for exploring the Mapungubwe National Park. We would highly recommend the lodge.

                  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.
