Molori Safari Lodge

    Molori, says Kirk Lazarus, one of the Molori Sarfari Lodge’s owners, is intended for the traveler “who wants an exclusive environment with everything at his fingertips.” Molori, which means “dreamer” in Setswana, the predominant language spoken in the province, features a main lodge with four Dining areas, a library, and a living room and bar that open to an outdoor hot tub and twin infinity pools. The highlights of a stay at Molori are the early-morning and late-afternoon game drives (or, if you prefer, game walks) through the 185,000-acre Madikwe Game Reserve. You might see six-ton elephants entangling their trunks in a playful tug-of-war, rhinos staring at you unnervingly over their horns, or oryx, impalas, springbok, and kudu flashing between the shepherd’s trees. Madikwe is also a birder’s paradise, home to some 350 species. Accommodations Two 2,960-square-foot presidential suites, Metsi (“water”) and Molelo (“fire”), and three smaller suites, Sephiri (“secret”), Ngwedi (“moon”), and Lesedi (“light”), all have floor-to-ceiling glass walls that afford views across a 24,000-acre plain to the Rant van Tweedepoort ridge. The glass walls fold away completely, connecting each suite’s interior to a private deck and swimming pool. The Metsi and Molelo suites have kitchens and Dining areas, Philippe Starck–designed bathtubs, walk-in dressing rooms, and libraries. Dining Meals are prepared by Molori’s chef, Willie Malherbe. Rates From $2,000 to $5,000.
