About Melozhori

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.

Conservation

Just a few of the mammals that can be found in the reserve are zebra, giraffe, eland, kudu, red hartebeest, sable antelope, waterbuck, bushbuck, black-backed jackal and the bat-eared fox. The once endangered bontebok, now protected, thrives on the reserve. Special bird species include the blue crane, black harrier and cape vulture. The reserve also participates in local conservation efforts to monitor and protect the elusive Cape Leopard, which has been spotted on the rare occasion.

Facilities

“This is an incredible place. Amazing location and personal service from Lientjie and Coenraad and their team. The knowledge and passion for animals, conservation and the land is wonderful. Everything is tailored to your needs and the facilities and food is exceptional. We will definitely return.”
