Guests can look forward to uninterrupted early morning sun rise vista off the main deck while having a coffee to awaken the senses.

Welgevonden Game Reserve
Malaria Big 5 Game Reserve

Rolling wooded mountains cut by deep rocky ravines and majestic gorges make Welgevonden Game Reserve an evocative piece of Africa. Aptly meaning ‘well found’, this is a place of rare and rugged beauty, plentiful wildlife and prolific birdlife. Spectacular scenery and excellent game viewing make Welgevonden quite unlike anywhere else on earth. To visit here is to experience the spirit of true wilderness.

A pleasant 2.5-hour drive or an easy 45-minute flight from Johannesburg into one of the airstrips, makes Welgevonden one of the most accessible premier malaria free wilderness reserves in the country. Welgevonden Game Reserve, (Dutch for "well found"), is a 34,850 ha game reserve in the Waterberg District, of the Limpopo Province of South Africa.
