A secluded luxury safari lodge in the Dwarsberg mountains
Molori Safari Lodge is a luxury retreat located 400 kilometres northwest of Johannesburg in the Northwest Province. The reserve borders Botswana. Built in 2002 in the middle of the Madikwe Game Reserve as a family house, the owners decided to transform their escape into a chic lodge in 2007.
Guests can enjoy splendid views of the infinite valley and the Dwarsberg mountains. Molori Safari Lodge offers its guests an original connection to the wilderness and the dramatic surroundings. You can enjoy a high level of comfort in style with personalised services. It is important for the hosts to welcome their guests cheerfully and to build personal relationships with them. They arrange anything that guests need, such as airport meets, expedited customs services at O.R. Tambo International Airport, customised game drives, and gourmet meals in unique settings.
The main lodge is composed of four dining areas, a library, a large living room, and a bar. The living room and bar areas open onto an outdoor deck with a spa and two infinity pools. There is also a spa on the highest mountainside deck for optimal wildlife viewing. Guests love spending time on one of the many decks to watch the beautiful scenery.
The five open-air suites, distanced from each other for absolute privacy, are very unique and are a highlight of the property. There are two premier suites (named Ngwedi and Lesedi), one family premier suite (Sephiri), and two presidential suites (Metsi and Molelo). They all have floor-to-ceiling retractable glass walls opening onto a private deck and a swimming pool. Other amenities include a fireplace, a minibar, a Nespresso machine, a spotter scope, Wi-Fi, an outdoor shower, and air conditioning. The presidential suites even feature a kitchen and a dining area, a study, a walk-in dressing room, and a guest bathroom.

Madikwe Game Reserve is one of the largest game reserves. Still off-the-beaten track, it is one of the best conservation areas in Africa which offers the Big 5 in a 680 km2 park. This large and exotic land is the perfect destination for a safari. Holiday-makers are enticed to game viewing and scenic photography.
Madikwe used to be a farming land but due to the poor soil, the South African government decided to transform this area in a national park. It has also been a mean to economically help this disadvantaged area.
The Big 5 is represented in the park. Visitors spot lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos or buffalos. Sometimes, they also have the rare privilege to catch a glimpse of the highly endangered African Wild Dog.
Madikwe Game Reserve is a 3.5 hours drive from Johannesburg. it is also easily accessible from Pretoria and Gaborone.
