A pleasant 2.5-hour drive, or an easy 45-minute flight from Johannesburg into one of 2 airstrips makes Welgevonden the most accessible premier wilderness reserve in the country and it is MALARIA FREE! 

Each lodge on Welgevonden is secluded, hidden from view, on their own freehold portion of this vast reserve. They can traverse and have free access to the whole unfenced sanctuary. This is not a resort or property development opportunity - Welgevonden is a vast premier game sanctuary with a very limited number of exclusive safari lodges, jealously guarded and managed for future sustainable use and appreciation.

Most of these stunning lodges are limited to 10 guests only and have been built to a strict aesthetic code. 

A handful of the lodges are run as 5 star luxury commercial destinations for discerning guests and can be booked through us.

Some of the Commercial Lodges:


This is a place of rare and rugged beauty, with plentiful wildlife and prolific birdlife. Traditional food and world-class wines are a certain luxury to be enjoyed.
