Melvill and Moon are safari outfitters providing classic yet contemporary safari gear for those wanting an authentic yet stylish safari experience. Bespoke furniture is constructed using simple designs with clean lines, exquisitely stitched heavy canvas adorns the finest wood and attention to detail is found in the finely crafted leather logos embroidered onto each item. Far from ostentatious, but oozing sophistication and authenticity, Melvill and Moon gear epitomises safari days from a bygone era. Natural hues are utilised throughout, ensuring campaign furniture and accessories blend into their natural environment.
When it comes to golden hour, a much celebrated time of day in the bushveld, we look at unique ways of paying homage to the brazen skies. Our Melvill and Moon sundowner bar set-up is where the wilderness and sophistication meet, and the Maseke Balule Game Reserve is certainly not short of sundowner spots. The natural landscape provides the romance, and we provide the set for a world of surprise “I dos” and “I love you” declarations to take place. After two of our guests enjoyed a rather strenuous 3 day hiking trail crunching through the bushveld in their veldskoen at the mercy of Africa on foot Wilderness Trails, they then decided to arrange a special sundowner session.
Upon request we can arrange for our sundowner set-up to take place at one of our camps in the Greater Kruger. This scene unfolded in the Maseke Balule Game Reserve, a rocky landscape dotted with koppies, boulders and hills giving rise to endless horizon views. We chose the perfect position, built a bushveld campfire and strategically placed the chairs in position. The field bar – adorned with brass fittings provided the perfect stand for our fine top-shelf whisky and craft gins.
We’ve arranged a Melvill and Moon set-up before at one of the Sun Destinations camps, and this time we decided the undulating rocky traverse of the Maseke was the perfect setting for a romantic occasion. If you have something special you want to celebrate, just let us know prior to arrival and we will set-up the carefully constructed mobile wooden bar, light the fire and create the mood. What you do with the mood, the words you speak and your actions are all up to you.
The setting sun has long since been the inspiration for poets penning their ink on parched paper, for romantic overtures and sweeping gestures. The one thing that remains constant amidst the mess of the modern living is the simplicity and beauty of the setting sun. The sun will always set, and so it will always rise again.
Backed African heritage spanning over 8 generations, Melvill and Moon mobile bar set-up combined with our expertise in identifying perfect spots and set-ups, provides the picturesque scene for a “yes”. Our Melvill and Moon special safari sundowners combine safari tradition and romance!
