If you are a safari aficionado, then you surely must have heard of the famous Malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve.
The Madikwe Game Reserve is a private, conservation area in South Africa’s North Western Province on the border of Botswana. Madikwe’s grassland, forest and rocky Tshwene Tshwene hills are some of South Africa’s best scenic views – and home to a variety of wildlife such as elephants, lions, leopards and rhinos, plus endangered wild dogs. More than 350 varieties of bird species flock this reserve including ostrich, vultures, large kori bustard.
Its rich biodiversity includes the Big Five and some 104 varieties of trees and many other wonders of nature. Its location on the Marico river basin provides views of lush banks and galloping waters. The other terrain opens out to grasslands and bushveld plains along with rocky outcrops and mountains.
Needless to say, the views here are spectacular and many of the lodges in Madikwe Game Reserve are designed especially around nature to give its visitors the best possible experience of this raw and earthy beauty. One such gaming lodge is the Molori Safari Lodge.
Molori Safari Lodge
The lodge is quite secluded and gives you complete privacy to soak in the stunning scenes of the expansive Madikwe valley and the Dwarsberg Mountains.
Molori Safari Lodge has five open-air suites, carefully distanced from one another to offer the much-needed privacy that visitors come looking for. These include two premier suites(Ngwedi and Lesedi) and one family premier suite (Sephiri), and two presidential suites (Metsi and Molelo).
Attention to detail
Molori Safari Lodge is unlike any other camp or lodge you might have experienced. The focus is on exclusivity and the attention to detail is something extraordinary. Every meal, ride and experience are designed to give the guests a special and exclusive experience – including night drives which are rarely allowed in South Africa and Botswana.
The game drive is a unique experience at the Molori Safari Lodge, partly due to the exceptional trackers and guides who think and plan ahead of your game drive. You have your own private vehicle and game ranger.
The guides and rangers work closely to ensure that you have the most authentic game experience with as many sightings and experiences packed in as possible. Not only will you be able to see the Big Five, but also the African wild dogs, an experience in itself.
At Molori, there is a high premium on the quality of your experience. So, everything from the game vehicles to the game viewing to the meals planned is a perfect 10.
If you like to stay busy on your holidays, then Molori has plenty of activities and spa treatments on offer. The star-gazing here is spectacular and something each tourist should experience. Wild dog tracking, bush walks, super seven by night, rhino tagging are just a few of the things that you can take up during your visit.
You can also indulge in some wellness and relaxation treatments including spa, sauna and steam, heated spa baths, plunge pools and private swimming pools and many more.
Not to forget the children! There is a junior ranger programmer for kids, culinary classes and a lot to do.
When you visit the Molori Safari Lodge, you take back a lot of food memories. Molori’s exclusive team of chefs customize and discuss each meal with guests. All fare is prepared with fresh and organic ingredients as well as paired with some fine wine.
The dining experience is unique with a choice of settings from breakfast in the bush, to dining under the stars or a specially catered meal at your suite.
The food is such a hit that Molori has started culinary classes where aspiring chefs can learn how to prepare their favourite indigenous dishes.
