Started by the Melvill family, Melvill & Moon is still family run and owned.

They are backed by an African heritage that goes back 8 generations.

Having arrived in Southern Africa as missionaries in the 1700’s, the Melvill family established themselves as prominent land surveyors, cattle ranchers and soldiers with Lieutenant Teignmouth Melvill winning the Victoria Cross at the Battle of Isandlwana in 1876. One thing that features prominently through the generations however is a love of Africa and a passion for Safari.
