Fifty Seven Waterberg: A Big 5 Game Lodge with Conservation at the Core

If you are on the hunt for luxury accommodation in the heart of the Bushveld, look no further because Fifty Seven Waterberg is a Big 5 game lodge with a difference. Nestled in the breathtakingly beautiful Welgevonden Game Reserve, our accommodation is the perfect choice for anyone with a penchant for nature and conservation.

Our 10 intimate suites can comfortably accommodate 20 adults and each room boasts 5-star luxury, comfort, and charm. Our rooms are spacious and each couple will get to enjoy their own private patio with ample views of the Bushveld. Rooms also house a desk and study area, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and a king-sized bed.

When you are not basking in the comfort of the lodge, enjoy a Big 5 game drive in the Welgevonden Reserve or enjoy some stargazing thanks to the crystal-clear sky. You might recognise this impressive biosphere from MTN’s Internet of Things (IoT) advertisement, which explains how this innovative technology can protect rhinos from potential threats. The park utilises IoT tracking technology in order to track prey animals who graze close to the rhinos.

The trackers can easily detect when these animals are stressed and, when this occurs, they send an alert to a database. This anti-poaching technology allows rangers to monitor a potential threat without the rhinos needing to be collared. This specialised technology resulted from a partnership between the reserve, MTN, and Wageningen University and makes Welgevonden a must-visit site for anyone who is passionate about conservation.
