Accommodation Review: Feel at Home in Molo Lolo Lodge, Cape Town

Molo Lolo Lodge is, in many ways, a somewhat secluded gem in the Mother City. With its unassuming, almost aristocrat David-Livingstone-in-Africa-type exterior and lovely location in the cosy suburb of De Waterkant (one of my personal favourites), if you blink twice from the street, you might just miss it.
