Welgevonden Game Reserve

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.

Accessibility
Welgevonden is entirely malaria free and just an easy 2 and a half hour drive or 45 minute flight from Johannesburg, making it one of the most accessible premier wilderness reserve in the country and a fast and unique means of escaping the hustle and bustle of the city.

Luxury Lodges
There are now a handful of spectacularly luxurious, secluded and sustainable lodges within the reserve, most of which are limited to a maximum of ten guests and have been built with the strictest aesthetic attention to the surrounding environment. All Welgevonden’s lodges offer a range of game drives, activities, fabulous vistas and first rate facilities and service including the best food and wine that South Africa has to offer.

Welgevonden is home to over 50 different mammals and boasts all of Africa’s Big 5. The reserve has one of the largest populations of white rhino of any of Africa’s private reserves as well as kudu, giraffe, zebra, warthog, cheetah, brown hyena, the honey badger, close to 300 bird species and a whole lot more. At the same time, the restricted number of vehicles allowed in the park and the fact that the animals have never been hunted means that the they remain largely unphased by human proximity, allowing for particularly close and personal encounters.

Welgevonden Game Reserve, (Dutch for "well found"), is a 38,200ha game reserve in the Waterberg District, of the Limpopo Province of South Africa.

Altitude varies from 1080 m in the north to ±1800 m in the southern section of the reserve. Welgevonden is home to over 50 different mammals, including the Big Five. The diversity of habitat leads to a wide range of wildlife with grassy plains abounding with antelope from the largest eland to the diminutive duiker; and cheetah, lion and leopard are regularly seen close by. There are also numerous rare and unusual species such as brown hyena, aardwolf, pangolin and aardvark – all best seen at night.
