Following a fire that damaged the main lodge area of Forest Lodge at the end of August, forcing the closure of the lodge while re-construction takes place, we are happy to say that work is well underway to meet the opening deadline of the 20th December. Using the opportunity to ensure that Forest Lodge gets a fresh new look, various areas in the main lodge have been re-designed.
Molori Safari recently hosted Roy Mangersnes, a trained behaviouralist and professional wildlife photographer living in Sandnes, southwestern Norway. Roy is a Nikon ambassador and is considered among the most influential nature photographers in Norway today.

At last our new development, "Fordoun Farm Village" is complete and up and running and we could not be happier or prouder with the results. Now the challenge is to fill the events venue! Luckily this has already been happening, purely through word of mouth. Our launch of this superb new facility coincided with the launch by VW of their new Caddy vehicle - what perfect timing! VW apparently tries to utilise fresh new venues when launching their products and this was one of the reasons why they chose Fordoun.
