Molori Safari Lodge is the Wilderness Resort of Your Dreams

Plenty of resorts describe themselves as (being in) “dream locations,” but Molori actually put this boast in its name (which is the seTswana language word for dream). Which is fine, because you’d be hard-pressed to find a more luxurious game lodge anywhere in southern Africa.

Built in 2002, the five-suite retreat was initially intended as a private escape, but five years later its owners decided to share this marvelous spot with the world. After a serious makeover, the property was turned into the intimate, eco-chic lodge, perfectly suited to receive even the most discerning travelers. Located 400km northwest of Johannesburg in South Africa’s Northwest Province, it lies at the heart of the 75,000-hectare malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, a picturesque place where you can find yourself face to face with lions, elephants, cheetahs, and every other creature of the savanna you can think of.

But what sets this place apart from most other wilderness retreats is the amazing Molori Safari Spa, where guests can choose whatever strikes their fancy from a variety of full suite of massage, aromatherapy, and skin and body treatments. There’s also a well-equipped gym for those who want to keep up with their workout routine, as well as a Spa Deck and a Jacuzzi Deck, from where guests can just relax and enjoy the unforgettable views.
