THE LODGE

With sweeping views of the Afromontane forests, Melton Manor is chic and contemporary, yet relaxing and comfortable. The welcoming U-shape and 4 ensuite bedrooms of this sole-use safari villa are cleverly designed around the central courtyard and its large, inviting swimming pool. Distinctively South African, feature pieces of simple vintage furniture combine with up-sized, deep comfortable sofas whilst subtle game and bush references embrace the local environment.

The manor’s 4 bedrooms offer a private refuge with a large veranda, enormous bed and a butler hatch for unobtrusive morning service. A generous bathtub invites you for a soak and large windows provide uninterrupted bushveld views. The interactive farm-style kitchen encourages you to try your hand at combining flavours under the guidance of your personal chef. Share meals and laughter around the farmhouse table in the fresh air of the terrace.

A private safari vehicle with ranger and tracker offers a completely flexible itinerary for daily game drives, nature walks, big game walking safaris (tracking white rhino, black rhino, elephant and buffalo on foot) and fishing. Spend the afternoon hours in the library enjoying a quiet session with a book, relax around the pool or have some fun with the large collection of board games.
