The epitome of barefoot luxury, the Valley Pod and Waterfall Pod are ideal for romantic breakaways and honeymoons. Accommodating up to 2 adults and 1 small child, every corner of our luxury pods is created to maximise the wild surrounds that have inspired them.
The most recent accommodation options at Melozhori are two new self-catering Eco-Pods located on secluded spots across the reserve. These seductively located and luxuriously finished pods each have a wood-fired hot tub, outdoor pizza oven and a massive 14m hammock to watch game browsing nearby or gaze at our beautiful starry night skies. Enjoy sweeping views across a verdant valley, all the creature comforts of home as well as a full range of modern luxuries and amenities.
Perfect for exploring this diverse countryside, rates for the Valley Pod and Waterfall include one complimentary game drive per two-night stay. Led by an experienced guide, these drives are an opportunity to spot wildlife such as giraffe, zebra, sable, bontebok and wildebeest.
With countless other ways to explore the wilderness of Melozhori, you will never be short of something to do. Head out on a relaxing hike through the veld, or opt for a more adventurous mountain biking expedition through vastly unchartered land. As night descends, turn your attention to the sky and bask in spectacular sky-gazing unobstructed by light pollution. Last, but not least, take a dip in the wood-fired hot tub, or simply relax on the hammock with a good book.
“Still in awe from our two night getaway at Melozhori game reserve. Everything was so perfect! From the beautiful stargazing on the hammock to the pizza oven to my favorite feature - the wood fire hot tub. So much attention to detail in this place! Can only recommend this getaway. We stayed in the beautiful Waterfall Pod and we cant wait to go back.”
“Fantastic getaway. Peaceful, excellently kitted-out. Perfect for a couple trying to get away rom everyone. Staff were incredibly helpful. The Pod was immaculate with incredible braai facilities, wood fired oven and a fired hot-tub that made stargazing an out-of world experience. Definitely a gem!”
“Had the privilege of staying in all three of their accommodation offerings - the Pod, the Cottage & the beautiful Lodge... and all I can say is wow wow wow! An experience that I will never forget. The reserve is so naturally beautiful and peaceful, you really feel like you are escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. I would recommend Melozhori to anyone and can't wait to visit again.”

The history of Melozhori is the story of the Bhorat family and their search for a getaway in nature to call their own. With no history of agriculture, but a passion for conservation and wildlife, the family acquired an old sheep and cattle farm in 2008 on the historic wagon-trading route between the Overberg and Cape Town.
Enjoy immersive eco-experiences like guided game drives, nature walks, moutain biking and fireside dining under a starry night sky. Relax, unwind and feel rejuvenated by the wide open landscapes, crisp country air and flourishing wildlife of this pristine pocket of paradise.
