New to Molori Safari is our new hide and whiskey bar. The hide offers magnificent views overlooking the Molori waterhole which has quickly become a favourite spot for guests to observe Madikwe wildlife at close proximity. It offers keen photographers new opportunities to take intimate images of elephants, lion, buffalo and amazing birdlife that pop in to drink at the waterhole. Adjacent to the hide, that features floor to ceiling glass doors overlooking the Dwarsberg mountain range, guests get to experience whisky and wine tastings while watching the wildlife walk by.
For close encounters with nature, Molori offers game drives twice daily that aim to leave guests with memories of much more than just the “big five” or Madikwe “super seven”. The 75,000-hectare reserve boasts several prides of lion, large herds of elephant, black and white rhino, countless buffalo and more than 340 bird species, as well as the endangered cheetah, brown hyena and a healthy population of wild dogs. Night drives showcase an array of nocturnal wildlife, including leopard, honeybadger and various smaller members of the cat family. Our guided safari walks give guests the exhilarating experience of tracking animals on foot and orientation on medicinal plants and local history.
