Why Welgevonden Game Reserve?

Welgevonden Game Reserve is a 36,000-hectare private game reserve in the Waterberg District of the Limpopo Province of South Africa.

Experience The reserve is one of the most accessible premier malaria-free wilderness reserves in the country. After a pleasant 2,5-hour drive (or an easy 45-minute flight) from Johannesburg, guests will arrive in Big 5 territory.

Here, lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo & rhino roam freely – along with an abundance of other wildlife & a colourful collection of birds. The rare & unusual species like cheetah, brown hyena, caracal, aardwolf & aardvark can also be seen here.

Welgevonden offers an exclusive, intimate safari experience, with only a limited number of guests having access to the reserve at any one time. Because of this vehicle restriction & the fact that the animals have never been hunted means that they remain largely unphased by human proximity, allowing for particularly close-up encounters.

Activities At Welgevonden, guests will have the opportunity to see over 65 mammal species – including the coveted Big 5 as well as over 300 species of bird!

Visitors can observe Africa’s magnificent creatures in the wild with twice-daily open 4x4 game drives & nature walks with expert-led guides. Game drives take place twice daily - once in the morning & once in the afternoon & evening so that guests have an opportunity to search for nocturnal animals with a spotlight.

When To Travel Welgevonden’s climate is generally described as warm & temperate, with three distinct seasons.

The dryer winter months (May – July) are often considered the best time of year for big game viewing as the grass & savanna are shorter & less dense than in the wetter months, making the animals easier to spot.

From August to October, the bush remains predominantly dry, though you will get the occasional thunderstorm rolling in across the plains. The wet season is from November to April. These wetter months are the best time to enjoy the region’s incredible array of birdlife.
