We drove from Pretoria to Molenvliet Lodge and that was very easy, thanks to Ritas help at reservations, supplying us with a map which was emailed to us. Arriving at the West Gate, we were greeted by Simon, the Lodge Manager who made us feel welcome by being friendly, warmhearted and easy going! Arriving at the lodge we received a welcome drink and met Marcus and Morgan: we felt so special, they were absolutely wonderful, showing us around and getting us whatever we wanted. Their service and uncomplicated help was outstanding! The lodges chalets are spacious, extremely tastefully furnished and have a private porch which is great for bird watching or just having a glass of wine! The same applies to the communal areas and the pool: stunning and soo relaxing! Because the lodge has only 5 chalets you feel like being in a very exclusive and private surrounding .The food prepared by Morgan is out of this world and you will have a big problem to finish his generous portions! Our game drives were fantastic, we saw everything you could ask for ! It was an absolute pleasure to spend a weekend at Molenvliet-just too short, but we will definitely be back soon. Thanks a million to all of the staff!
