"A real highlight of our trip"
In the context of the location it is fair to grade everything as excellent, although the camp is not (thank goodness) luxurious..
One member of our party had not understood that once at the camp the only method of transport is walking.
The whole thing revolves around Bruno's guiding which is all encompassing. Everything from beetles and caterpillars to rhinos, vegetation and spoor is grist for the mill. Bruno's vision for Mundelea is visibly working. I particularly enjoyed our afternoon expeditions when we able to climb up a couple of local hills.
The camp is delightful, though some might find it a little basic; it overlooks a waterhole. The cooking is delicious (all prepared on an open fire) and wholesome.
This was a highlight of our trip and contains some favourite moments.
At this time of year with the grass long and with one member of the party unable to walk long distances there were some restrictions but Bruno took it all in his stride. At the right time of the year I would think that this would be breathtaking. I hope to return." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia
Food was delicious, wonderful walks and excellent host.
We had an unforgettable experience watching a vet dart and tranquillise a giraffe, then remove a snare." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia; 4n in South Africa; 3n in Botswana
It was a magical wilderness experience (but not for anyone who doesn't like bugs!), Bruno was a fascinating guide and the walks twice a day were fabulous.
I will never forget this place and would love to go back." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia

"Mundulea Reserve review"
You need to do your own washing or go smelly, you have salad for lunch and meat and veg for dinner, and thankfully there is no dreaded WIFI, but I would go back in a heartbeat. The bed is comfortable, this was where I slept the best, the shower is powerful and hot and plentiful. The chat is constant , interesting , challenging and yes educational.
I loved loved loved Mundulea." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
"Extremely knowledgeable owner/guide"
Mundulea is a place for nature lovers. The hides in front of one's tents allow one to get very close to the game. Accommodation in tents is suitably rustic and perfectly comfortable with luxurious-feeling duvets and an attached bathroom with flush toilet, shower, sink, horns for hanging one’s towel over and a piece of stone to act as counter space.
Food is quite good with outstanding nutty bread cooked over a bush fire. Be aware that, although Mundulea is expensive, it is not a luxury lodge but a wonderful experience for people who want an extremely knowledgeable guide and really love being “in the bush.”" See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia; 4n in South Africa
"Mundulea Reserve review"
Our last visit was two years ago and it was interesting to see the changes and developments with the wildlife and how the area was responding to good management. Staying with Bruno on Mundulea is always something we look forward to, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As ever you never know what we will see – such as Bushbabies, a young Giraffe and many trees just coming into leaf & flower.
We always learn something new and very much enjoyed the in-depth discussions around the campfire and over dinner. Excellent visit - always sad to leave." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
The accommodations were rougher but still quite nice. This is all walking, so may not be for everyone. We loved it.
We did a 10km and the 6km walk the first day. One does not see many animals on the walks - the blinds are best for this - but Bruno uses the Socratic method to great advantage asking us to elucidate some particular scat, track, or signs of sone event. The only suggestion would be to take a five to ten minute sit down break every hour or so. Bruno suggested the camp might close in the future, so go while you can.
Although laundry services were indicated in the materials provided us, this was not the case." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana; 1n in South Africa
"Fascinating insight into conservation effort"
Bruno isn't a guide, he is a conservationist, and you are privileged to see a tiny bit of his work.
Basic bush camp, shared by porcupine! Excellent food cooked over open fire.
We were the only guests at first, joined by another couple for 2 days. We loved it (2 parents, 20+ year old daughters)." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana
"Exceptional walking camp"
The camp is simple but very comfortable. Food was very good and more the style of home cooking which we enjoyed. A bonus was a porcupine who came to visit us at dinner time most nights.
Our stay here was exceptional. Mundulea is a very special place and we feel privileged to have spent 4 days here." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia
