There’s nothing like a generous helping of Mother Nature and fresh air to get you back on track. The pure exhilaration that comes with being immersed in nature – away from the noise of the city – is a tonic. The Cape is dotted with a wonderful selection of innovative retreats that are committed to preserving the planet while offering comfort, style and endless natural beauty.

Melozhori Pods

Where Bonnievale
Distance from CT 2.5 hours
Setting Though it’s a mere two-hour drive from Cape Town, this 2 500-hectare game reserve feels like it’s a million miles away. With nothing but an acacia-shaded valley extending to the Riviersonderend Mountains in the distance, and the sound of chirping birds and rustling leaves to keep you company, Melozhori is the ultimate reprieve. Valley Pod and Waterfall Pod perch on an untouched area of the reserve that overlooks the game-dotted plains beyond, offering an ideal setting for a private escape or romantic retreat.
Eco cred Built from natural materials in order to blend seamlessly into the landscape; solar powered; the reserve is a former livestock farm returned to pristine, indigenous nature.
