MORE Family Collection (MFC) is a fourth-generation family business that owns and manages a private group of award-winning, luxury safari lodges and boutique hotels set within some of Southern Africa’s finest locations.
Our origin dates to 1933 with the founding of Lion Sands Game Reserve. You will find us in the most awe-inspiring and untouched parts of Southern Africa – in the bush near natural wonders, by the ocean, or in the city.
This allows us to share with our guests the country’s many attractions and gives them a synergised experience of the best this continent has to offer. Some of our properties form part of the MORE family heritage, tremendous gifts, handed down through generations of custodians.
Other properties took time and patience to curate and to transform into the bespoke places they are today. But we consider each of our properties a second home, and this is how we want our guests to enjoy them.
The MORE Family Collection lodges and hotels offer a sanctuary for loved ones and friends to gather and take time to rest and unwind. We are committed to creating experiences that help guests reconnect with themselves and each other.
Throughout our years on the ground – and being family people and travellers ourselves – we have come to understand what is important to our guests and have designed more personal experiences around these requirements.
Memorable Family Time
Our family experiences, including the Mack & Madi Kids’ Adventure, offer something for everyone, making MORE Family Collection’s lodges and hotels favourite multigenerational holiday destinations.
Authentic Wilderness Adventures
Safaris to awaken the soul when guests encounter Africa’s most spectacular wildlife, accompanied by MORE Guides who are in a league of their own.
Couple experiences are about more than rose petals on the bed; they are lifetime memories made in the presence of wild herds, on starry nights, enjoying picnics in the Winelands together.
Relaxation and Recharging
Opportunities to disconnect from a life perpetually ‘switched on’ in complete comfort, providing rare time to just be present in the moment.
Opportunities To Give Back
On-the-ground experiences bring guests to the heart of Southern Africa where they have the opportunity to connect with local people while having a meaningful impact on their lives.
Tailor-Made Private luxury
MORE Family Collection’s Villas are deluxe, exclusive-use accommodations, with dedicated staff members who create highly-personalised leisure experiences for each guest. A MORE Family Collection experience begins before leaving home. Our dedicated team is always available to assist with every aspect of your journey, from planning to arrival.
