The cottage is remote but not far to stores if you run out of things you need. We stayed two nights and cooked both times because we enjoyed it so much we didn't want to go out for dinner, The game drive was incredible with the most knowledgeable guide driving us around! My husband and I are runners and we loved running the roads through the reserve and seeing animals occasionally along the way. Great walks too! This was the highlight of our trip to South Africa. Can't say enough how much we enjoyed! Highly recommend!!
Situated amongst the Fynbos high up on a Game farm near Stormsvlei, which is a convenient stop if you are travelling the Garden Route. Comfortably accommodates 4 people and has all the modern amenities including a pool, a Braai and outside seating for meals. Wood is provided for the log burner and for the Braai. The animals such as the Sprinkbok herd often com right up to door. You get a game drive included when you can locate the other animals such as the giraffe. Very friendly staff and a very secure location. Close to the beautiful Breede River Valley for wine tasting at various wineries.
Having been fortunate enough to have visited more than once, Melozhori is like a soul-feeding haven from the bustling city yet close enough for a weekend stay (although a weekend is not long enough!)
The minute one arrives, the tone is set of a well run establishment with well trained staff and excellent service that feels effortless.
The guest suites are spacious, private and have great views to wake up to, not to mention special comforts like underfloor heating and good quality linen.
The food is amazingly indulgent and no effort is spared and they are accommodating of special dietary requirements.
The outdoor is way more than one would expect with such density of amazing animals from giraffe to buffalo. Game drives, horse riding, fishing, trail running and a boma fire pit under the stars can all happen on the same day if you want yet a relaxing indoor fireside day or relaxing in the pool just as easily.
A highly rated experience and a place that you’ll want to return to again and again.
Unique beautiful lodge in a dreamlike environment. Perfect hosts who fulfill every wish. Lientjie Nell (the Reserve Manageress) extraordinary cooking skills made the stay at Melozhori perfect. Thank you so much. We will vist again!
Cape Town and a great quality safari are, in my opinion, the best way to experience South Africa in a relatively short time, and for that Melozhori is ideal. Wonderfully located, not so far from the city, it's an oasis in the middle of the bush. I was literally jogging with giraffes, and watching "Bambi" out of my windows. A special mention for the excellent, fresh food, and for the flexibility and friendliness of staff. I felt cozy and at home, but surrounded by luxury. A real treat.
