Molori's Guides
Engage with our three highly qualified and award winning guides.  Molori Safari’s guiding team comprising John D (head guide), Obakeng (Ob) and Jerry, have accumulated a wealth of knowledge in their many years as guides, most of which have been within the boundaries of the magnificent Madikwe Game Reserve.  All share a love for the bush and a passion for exploration and discovery which they take delight in sharing with Molori's guests.  The guiding team is passionate about spending time with families and children, opening up their experience of the African bush – from the antics of large species to the exquisite, tiny worlds of the smallest of creatures. They are all great storytellers, poo'ologists and re-assemblers of skeletons and makers of disposable gwarri bush toothbrushes.

Game Drives

Discover adventure and connect to the wild on a Molori Safari game drive. Game drives take place during the day and at night in open 4×4 vehicles, safely accompanied by an experienced and armed guide. During the drive, your Molori game field guide will share his wealth of knowledge while tracking the Big Five and other endangered species like wild dog and cheetah whilst also uncovering the many hidden facets of the African bush. Equally exciting, the night drives reveal an array of nocturnal wildlife, including leopard, honeybadger and smaller members of the cat family. A whole new world awaits you.

Bush Tracking
For close encounters with nature, Molori Safari offers guided game walks and the exhilarating experience of tracking animals on foot. On this experience you’ll immerse yourself in the rhythms of nature, opening up your senses to reveal an ancient language heard by animal trackers through the ages. Follow your guide as he reveals the big and small wonders of the African bush, its creatures, medicinal plants, hidden treasures and more.

Super Seven by Night
Discover nocturnal adventure on a night drive tracking Madikwe’s Super Seven. Using hi-tech torches, you have the rare opportunity to see into the nocturnal world of lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, rhinoceros, wild dog and cheetah. A whole new dimension is revealed on this exhilarating experience.

Rhino Tagging
Molori Safari is involved in rhino conservation efforts and guests can by arrangement be part of an extraordinary hands-on rhino tagging experience – involving the notching, DNA sampling and micro chipping of the rhino’s horns. Guests can work on the ground with the vet and ecologist, in close proximity to the sedated rhino, or take to the air in a helicopter during the rhino search. The rhino tagging conservation experience is charged as a separate cost and must be arranged a week in advance. Guests of all ages can participate, with a high level of parental monitoring required for younger children. The rhino tagging experience begins early morning, between 6:30 and 7:00am, and runs into the early afternoon. Lunch is taken to guests in the bush or a late lunch can be arranged on return to the lodge.

Wild Dog Expedition
Madikwe Game Reserve is home to the endangered wild dog, the second most endangered carnivore in Africa after the Ethiopian wolf, with the current population of wild dogs in South Africa estimated at less than 400. The Molori Safari wild dog expedition shares with guests the intensive push to conserve and protect these amazing animals for future generations. Guests spend an early morning tracking down the Madikwe wild dog pack and learn about the pack’s strictly defined social hierarchy, the bonds between members and their superb, cooperative hunting techniques.

Water Hole Viewing Deck
Experience Madikwe’s wild life from the comfort of the Molori Safari viewing deck, which overlooks our own private water hole. Here creatures big and small arrive to take their fill from this oasis-like water source, providing guests with ideal game-spotting and photo-taking opportunities.
Chartered flights are bookable through Molori’s reservations team. Flights are available from Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport or from Rand Airport to Madikwe Game Reserve’s private airstrip – wh ich is only 15 minutes from our lodge. Aircrafts available include Baron 58 (3 pax), PC 12 (7 pax) and for slightly larger groups, a Cessna Grand 208 (8-10 pax). Please inquire for more information.

Unwind with a cocktail of your choice, a book chosen from the main lodge library, or a cigar. Molori Safari has a well-equipped humidor and offers a variety of imported cigars, available to our guests at an extra cost.

Culinary Classes
Our expertly trained chefs are available for one-on-one cooking classes and may even part with a few of their delectable secrets. Aspiring chefs can learn how to prepare their favourite indigenous dishes – from selecting and preparing ingredients to cooking and presenting a meal. Cooking classes can be booked 24 hours in advance.

Junior Rangers
For children, Molori Safari presents a world of adventure and discovery. Our experienced game rangers are passionate about sharing their knowledge with younger guests (our Junior Rangers) and opening their eyes to a whole new world of creatures both large and small. Junior Rangers can participate in exciting animal tracking and identification excursions, learn about the Madikwe Reserve’s Super Seven and the importance of conservation, and grow an appreciation for all the small gifts nature has to offer.

Other Junior Ranger activities include pizza making, baking, fishing, games and creative expression.

Fishing
Special nearby activities such as fishing are gladly arranged for Molori Safari guests. The Groot Marico River runs through the reserve and offers some spectacular fishing spots as well as an opportunity to see hippos. Molori Safari can arrange a fishing excursion complete with a delectable picnic basket.
