I visited Molenvliet with a group of friends earlier this month. It proved to be one of the most relaxing and peaceful places I could have hoped for, and well located within comfortable striking distance of the main commercial centres of South Africa. The suites were huge and beautifully appointed, the meals superb and the ambience warm and welcoming. The... More

We spent a magical weekend at this wonderful lodge in Welgevonden. The setting of the lodge cannot be better- the food was excellent and the whole experience wonderful. Africa at its best. The game drives were well organized- and we saw amazing animal sightings- including a lion kill. The game rangers were knowledgeable and helped to make it an unforgettable... More

The food was excellent and the chef have done a great job for all the different visitors. We saw Rhinos with calf's at a waterhole the next day at arms... More

After a warm welcome we went on a 'first safari' between the entrance and our Lodges. We were very lucky to see a lot of animals en some close encounters from the start on. Our stay was very nice as we were with a group of 7 persons. The whole lodge was ours and that was a unique opportunity. The... More

What a Lodge. I took people from Belgium there, and on our way to the lodge we came across our first surprise....about 20 elephants. We also saw a new born baby elephant and Rhino and other animals and birds that you don't normally see at Game Farms. We were lucky enough to see a Cheetah Kill The lodge itself is... More

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
