About Molalatau Lodge

Molalatau, “the resting place of the lion”, is a small oasis in the most beautiful, hart of the Bushveld. At the very same spot where the Mogolo river and the Rietspruit meets. This is where it found its peaceful way between the Nyala - and Water-berry trees. This is also where the King rests at night and is awaken by the early morning call of the Fish Eagle.

Here you will find verdant green lawns, colourful gardens and beautiful accommodation. Our accommodation consists of Bushbuck Chalets, Eagle Rooms, Monkey Cabins, Leopard Cottage, King Fisher Rooms and a spacious camping area with immaculately clean ablution blocks.

We provide Bed & Breakfast as well as Self-Catering options. Our king welcomes any animal to his kingdom. The resort is situated on the banks of the Mokolo river, and the mouth of the Rietspruit. We are surrounded by the picturesque Waterberg Mountains.

A rich bird life provides music in the Bushveld, whereas the beautiful indigenousness Bushveld trees provide tranquillity, calmness and protection to the hot Bushveld sun. The lodge boast of swimming pool, ablution blocks, volley ball, and braai area.

Relax at our open Bar, looking out on the Mokolo River next to the swimming area, where we will serve something cool to all the exhausted animals visiting our Kingdom.

Tiles to be sorted in Eagle roon 12. Perhaps rubber capets o the doors necessary to keep the rooms clean as guests move in and out. Some game with other nature reserves could be arranged for guest at an extra cost to lift the interest...otherwise we enjoyed our stay and we will still use the lodge in the future

15 July 2007

The staff was very helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcome at Molalatau. Our thatched chalet was very rustic, but suitable for the evening. We had a very nice stay, and breakfast the next morning was wonderful.

10 July 2007

We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the walks in the bush. The chalet was clean, and reasonably well-equipped. The restaurant was very quiet, and we preferred to drive to town for a meal.Some information on possible walks and/or game drives on neighbouring farms would have been welcome.
