Relax & Recharge

Enjoy 2,300 hectares of undulating hills and mountains offering breathtaking panoramic views, home to 36 species of game, 129 species of birds and a unique mix of indigenous flora. Do as much or as little as you desire.

Melozhori Private Game Reserve lies in the picturesque Cape Fold Mountains, adjacent to the tiny hamlet of Stormsvlei, in the verdant Overberg district of the Western Cape. It is located less than 200km from Cape Town and conveniently halfway to the world-famous Garden Route. Surrounded by undulating hills and mountains, with no other signs of civilization, it feels as though you’re in the deepest “bush” of Africa. The hilly and mountainous topography offers guests incredible vantage points of the 2,300 hectare reserve.

The flora consists mostly of Succulent Karoo, rare and endangered Renosterveld and sections of biodiverse Fynbos in the mountainous areas. Just a few of the mammals that can be found in the reserve include zebra, giraffe, eland, kudu, red hartebeest, bontebok, sable antelope, waterbuck, bushbuck, black-backed jackal and the bat-eared fox. Special bird species include the blue crane, black harrier and cape vulture.

“My family and I spent the weekend at this absolute hidden treasure. This game reserve is top class luxury and pure relaxation. The lodge has staff who are always willing to go the extra mile. We saw so many animals and the kids just loved the up close experiences with the wildlife. The rooms are immaculate and the lodge is so comfortable. A beautiful deck overlooks the mountains with the animals and a rim flow pool to relax in. A must for nature lovers.”
