Both open and welcoming, the Manor’s inner courtyard provides a focal point for shared hours, while the deep verandas of each bedroom suite offer stunning views of Kwandwe’s blue-lit hills.

With sweeping views of the river and mountains in three different directions, Melton Manor is a whimsical mix of old and new, a contemporary frontier farmhouse with a modern touch. Antique settler furniture is given fresh life with a coat of colourful paint and quirky touches combine familiar objects with unfamiliar uses, shades or locations. High ceilings and deep verandas produce a sense of space, while deep couches, warm fireplaces and casual touches invite you to kick back and relax.

The interactive farm-style kitchen invites you to try your hand at combining flavours under the cheerful guidance of your personal chef or simply to watch as meals or snacks expertly take shape whenever you want. Share meals and laughter in the dining room table or around the enormous farmhouse table in the fresh air of the terrace. But there’s no need to be formal - fresh, generous cuisine goes just as well in the ox wagon boma or at a casual picnic site in mid-game drive.

Spend the afternoon hours in the library, enjoying a quiet session with a book, or while away some hours with the large collection of board games. Your bedroom offers a private refuge with a deep veranda, enormous bed and butler hatch for unobtrusive morning service. Sandstone walls and crocheted blankets in funky shades mingle for a nostalgic yet cosy atmosphere. The deep bathtub invites you for a soak and the large windows mean the bushveld view competes for your attention with the immense handmade crystal, wire and clay-bead chandelier.
