Melozhori Game Reserve lies in the picturesque Cape folded mountains, adjacent to the tiny hamlet of Stormsvlei in the verdant Overberg district of the Western Cape and just under 200kms from Cape Town. And just like travellers of old, Melozhori is a natural place to pause on your journey through the beautiful and famous 'Garden Route'. This predator free game reserve is set on a breathtaking panoramic landscape with uninterrupted views and home to unique mix of indigenous fauna and flora. Each and every one of our passionate staff members will ensure you have a memorable stay, whether you just want to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city or enjoy a scenic game drive, relaxed walk or horseback safari with one of our specialist guides.

Each and every one of our passionate staff members will ensure you have a memorable stay, whether you just want to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city or enjoy a scenic game drive, relaxed walk or horseback safari with one of our specialist guides. The rambling thatched lodge sits comfortably on the slopes above a picturesque dam looking south-west towards the seemingly never ending folds of blue mountains. Entering the lodge, the most characteristic smell of Africa greets you - open thatch. The vast thatch roof that spans the magnificent lounge and dining area and the bedrooms to either side. Through glass doors, your eye is led over the timber deck and rim-flow pool, onto the mountains beyond; you feel instantly at ease. Every staff member is part of our family, committed to your comfort and relaxation, More
