If you are not into bush-buffets with sad salads or group hysteria at a leopard sighting or sharing your lounge with ill-behaved tourists, this is the place to go. The Lodge has 5 cottages, thus allowing no more than 10 guests- perfect for an intimate gathering. It seems to cater for sportsmen's tastes and physiques- the lodge appears to have... More

Within two days these people succeeded in completely relaxing us, something which a three week holiday can hardly accomplish. They really understand the definition of hospitality and truly practice what they preach. The game drives are intimate, you get to experience the wild and spend time with the animals like nowhere else. Furthermore the skilled game ranger made the game... More

This is the fourth time we have been to MolenVliet. We loved every moment of the trip. Private game drives with Simon as your own designated ranger make sure you get to see as much as possible. We were lucky enough to see lots of wildlife including. We loved the sundowners in the middle of the bush watching the sun... More

We spend a weekend at Molenvliet lodge to celebrate my dad's 60th. Coming from Europe Molenvliet offered us perfect relaxation in the instant that we arrived. We loved the game drives and seeing the big five, we enjoyed the very clean and luxurious lodge and the delicious food.

Having used six different Lodges in Welgevonden in the last few years, Molenvliet was our best find. As a whole it is definitely the best of all. There are more expensive lodges which are exceptional in respect of physical luxury (eg size of rooms, on-site spas) however they do not surpass the Molenvliet experience as a whole. The staff, food,... More

We had our 3rd wedding anniversary here and all I can say is it was breath taking, the lodge is small and quaint and they pay attention to detail and personal needs.
