Molori Safari Lodge | Madikwe Game Reserve
Molori Safari Lodge is very spread out with lots of steps between the different areas. This creates privacy but also an issue for those who do not like steps. It has a different feel that most safari lodge because of the distances between rooms and areas of the lodge.
Madikwe Game Reserve is huge and has good game. The off roading experience is more limited and it is an entirely different topography to the private reserves around Kruger Park. The mountains are wonderful and the terrain changes as you go to different areas of the reserve. The soil can be dusty, particularly if there has been a shortage of rain. This reserve borders on Botswana so you see animals in this reserve you do not see in the Kruger area. Examples are the Brown Hyena, black backed jackals, and the huge Kalahari Desert Lions. The reserve has many lodges and there are a lot of vehicles driving the park. However, I felt this to be a positive since there were many people looking for animals - the sightings were numerous. The lodges cooperate with each by way of radios to control the sightings so there are never more than three vehicles at a sighting at a time. At no time did I feel as if the reserve was crowded. You are seeing nature at its finest here, not penned in a small area for the tourists to see.
All of the five suites are different. The price point of course dictates the size and location of the suite. All the suites are certainly comfortable but as you go up the price point some of the suits are massive and stunningly beautiful. Keep in mind if steps and distance are an issue for you then you need to inquire as to the proximity to the main lodge. The lodge does have a golf cart to transport you to your suite.
The main lodge is really quite beautiful and spacious and very flexible in creating private areas due to the layout of the rooms. There is a lookout area close to the spa up quite a few steps that gives a great overview of the reserve.
Internet is available at Molori Safari Lodge.
