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, understanding that rare quality of unobtrusive service. Meals are prepared for you; when you’d like them and served where you’d like them. While you’re at Melozhori, it’s your home too. Whether snuggled in the deep couches round the roaring log fire, or under an umbrella of stars alongside the fire pit on a balmy summer evening, Melozhori’s is a home for all seasons.
Four generous en-suite bedrooms flow onto private decks, all overlooking the dam and valley beyond. Trees attract natural life to the fringes of the homestead; rise early and you’re likely to be sharing the view with giraffes and browsing zebras. Being a family home, the environment is completely safe for children, who will delight in the open spaces and spotting game from our open game-drive vehicle.
