Some of the MORE lodges and hotels are part of the More family heritage; tremendous gifts handed down through generations of custodians.
Others took time and patience to curate, and great passion to transform into the special and singular places they are today.
Our lodges and hotels include:
Lion Sands Game Reserve
On the Sabi Sand side of the reserve, the contemporary-style lodge is built of concrete, timber, glass, and steel to meld into the riverscape. Its eight one-bedroom Villas and one two-bedroom Fish Eagle Villa are peaceful refuges – each with a plunge pool and relaxation areas.
The self-contained Fish Eagle Villa also incorporates a spa and gym, and comes with a personal chef, field guide, and open safari vehicle for a tailor-made family/friend safari experience. A guest spa is set away from the main lodge and Villas.
On the Sabi Sand side of the reserve, River offers a chic design interpretation of the traditional safari lodge, with contemporary décor and limited walls allowing a flow between interior and exterior.
Its individual eight Luxury Rooms, six Superior Luxury Rooms, and four River Suites (each with a private plunge pool) are set along a path to reveal splendid river views, and make for an intimate safari experience. A guest pool is located next to the main lodge area.
On the Kruger Park side of the reserve, Tinga is a sophisticated take on the colonial-style lodge, capturing the romance of the pioneer era while providing considerable more comfort.
Nine Suites and the two-bedroom Hi’Nkweni Villa occupy private spots along the river, and each has a viewing deck and pool, in addition to the main lodge area. Hi’Nkweni also comes with its own butler, field guide, and open safari vehicle for a more exclusive bush experience.
On the Kruger Park side of the reserve, the lodge, perched on stilts amongst a canopy of 100-year-old trees, reflects its surrounds with organic chic décor, while its open design creates an air of relaxation.
The main lodge connects via raised wooden walkways to a spa sala and nine separate Suites. Each is built to afford complete privacy in a wilderness where you can watch the animals come down to the water from your pool and deck, as well as bed and bath.
Madikwe Game Reserve
Lelapa (meaning ‘family’ in Setswana) welcomes guests of all ages, with family-friendly accommodations and specially-planned children’s activities. Each of its 12 luxury Suites has a private lounge, viewing deck, and plunge pool, with the four Family Suites also incorporating a second children’s bedroom, stocked with toys and games.
While the lodge, respectful of the natural environment in its construction, epitomises contemporary African design, its atmosphere is luxuriously laid-back.
The modern lodge, influenced by an African design aesthetic, comprises just four luxury Suites and reminds of a traditional homestead. Kopano (meaning ‘small gathering’ in Setswana) can be booked out on an exclusive basis and is well-suited to a get-together of friends or family.
Each Suite’s private lounge, viewing deck, and plunge pool provide personal space and are ideal vantages from where to spot the wildlife coming by.
Dithaba (meaning ‘mountain’ in Setswana) has just four luxury Suites overlooking the expansive reserve. Each is a couple or solo traveller’s retreat; or together, an exclusive home base for a friend or family group while on safari.
The lodge’s construction, incorporating natural design elements, is uncomplicated, and each Suite – with its own lounge, plunge pool, and viewing deck – provides space to unwind and watch the animals out on the plains.
Marataba Mountain Lodge
The essence of the fully solar-powered, Scandi-style Marataba Mountain Lodge is in its exclusive location – set secluded within the Waterberg and surrounded by Marakele National Park.
Five private Eco Suites, accommodating you and just nine other guests, open onto a wilderness world of your own – renowned for its magnificent scenery and flourishing wildlife. The main lodge provides more social relaxation spaces and a shared Rock Pool, which seems to skim off into the Waterfall Valley below.
Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel
Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel, set in the suburb of Gardens, is a grand old dame (with National Monument status) dating back to the early 1800s. But her bold and quirky style brings her firmly into the 21st centaury, without losing any of her charm.
From the outside, this original Georgian house, with Victorian additions, looks like a private residence, and each of her 15 individually-decorated rooms is intended to make solo, couple, and business travellers alike feel at home in the heart of the city.
More Quarters Hotel
Luxury rooms, including family rooms, come with all the privacy of your own lounge, kitchen and dining area, and all the convenience of five-star hotel service.
The hotel’s 23 accommodations are ideal for travellers who appreciate having their own spot to come home to, where you can kick off your shoes and play your favourite music after a busy day out. The hotel also includes the four-bedroom Redcliffe House and we invite you, and your family or friends, to experience it as your own.
Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel
Vic Falls’ first luxury boutique hotel, with just 16 luxury Suites, welcomes guests (of all ages) to pause on a spectacular Southern African itinerary. Its elegant-yet-approachable design is a fresh take on colonial style, and its spaces – a lounge, bar, restaurant, terrace and serviced pool facing onto tranquil gardens – encourage you to settle in and feel at home.
Thoughtful comforts, attentive service, and excellent food enhance the experience, ensuring you are very well taken care of – a hallmark of Stanley & Livingstone.
Ursula’s is a more intimate option than its sister property, Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel, and can be booked as an exclusive retreat for families and friend groups.
Its main guest area – including a dining room, lounge, outdoor relaxation space with a firepit, and pool – serves four individual Rooms, offering a little more privacy, set amongst manicured garden. Each sleeps two guests (triple configuration on your request), and features a king-sized or three-quarter bed set, minibar, en-suite bathroom, and terrace.
