The Cottage

The luxurious cottage in Melozhori Game Reserve is situated in the middle of the reserve, high up on the hills, providing breath-taking views over the valley towards and blue-hued mountains beyond.

The cottage consists of two en-suite bedrooms, together accommodating up to 4 adults and 2 small children. Both rooms open onto personal viewing decks and are equipped with electric blankets for those chilly winter evenings, walk-in cupboards, and an array of amenities from the eco-friendly Healing Earth range. The cosy living area boasts a flat-screen TV, DSTV, a fireplace, a four-seat breakfast nook and a cushy L-shaped couch. The fully equipped kitchen is perfect for all your self-catering needs with a fridge, microwave, electric oven, kettle, and a Nespresso machine to start of the mornings on the right foot.

Moving outdoors, a built-in braai is the ultimate spot to spend you evenings, cooking up a storm with your friends or family in true South African fashion. Elsewise, warm up around the firepit, swapping stories from the day or toasting marshmallows. Our wood-fired hot tub is arguably our most popular feature, and a spectacular spot to watch the sunset or stargaze. During the day, cool off in the sparkling swimming pool, game view from the comfort of a rocking chair on the viewing deck or take a nap on the hammock. For the discerning traveller, this is the ideal getaway to immerse yourself in a peaceful and relaxing natural environment.

Experience the best of Melozhori with a game drive under the expert guidance of our passionate guides with their vast knowledge of our wildlife and unique renosterveld vegetation. A list of wildlife you can look forward to spotting includes wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, sable and oryx. A list of our animal and bird species are available in the cottage directory for your convenience. Self-drive of vehicles is not permitted on the reserve unless you are entering and leaving the property.

We encourage all our guests to go on walks on the reserve. It is a safe and predator-free environment, however, please respect the animals by keeping a safe distance. Do not attempt to touch or get too close to them; they have a natural fight-or-flight response. Mountain biking is also a popular activity on the reserve due to the closeness to nature and beautiful views. Bicycles can also be rented on the reserve; simply speak to our team for more information.
