"Molori Safari, situated in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve is recognised as one of southern Africa’s most luxurious lodges. Take advantage of Molori Safari’s specials that will allow you to spend more time at this exclusive destination, indulging in all that it offers."


Molori Safari is situated deep within the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa’s North West Province, bordering Botswana. The secluded lodge offers absolute privacy, while taking in breathtaking views of the Dwarsberg Mountains and the expansive Madikwe valley. At 75 000 hectares, Madikwe Game Reserve is South Africa’s fifth largest Big Five game reserve, but offers so much more than the Big Five. Madikwe is home to the Super Seven, which includes all Big Five species as well as cheetah and wild dog. There are an estimated 400 wild dogs still surviving in South Africa and a large concentration of these are thriving in the Madikwe habitat. The reserve is also home to some 350 recorded bird species ..


Madikwe Game Reserve is home to the endangered African Wild Dog and has the highest concentration of rhino in Africa. Conservation is an active and important part of life here. Molori Safari works closely with Madikwe Game Reserve in its rhino conservation efforts and guests can by arrangement be part of an extraordinary hands-on rhino tagging experience, participating in the notching, DNA sampling and micro chipping of the rhino’s horns. Guests can also participate in dog tracking experiences and learn more about this extraordinary and highly endangered species...Read more...
