Where 5-Star Service Meets Cutting-Edge Conservation


The reserve is home to a vast number of mammals and bird species and is truly a holiday to remember if you are into the great outdoors. Welgevonden Game Reserve is also the first in the world to utilise innovative anti-poaching technology. In the past 10 years, over 7000 rhinos have been killed in Africa, so the threat of extinction looms large. Thanks to a partnership between MTN and Wageningen University in the Netherlands, an anti-poaching initiative is now live in the Welgevonden Game Reserve. Researchers have placed specialised tracking collars on herbivores that graze near rhinos and when they sense a poaching threat and their stress levels are elevated, data is sent to the database.


This enables rangers to find potential threats before rhinos are killed and is a huge breakthrough in the fight against them becoming extinct. If you’ve seen the latest MTN TV advertisement illustrating this advanced technology in action at Welgevonden, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. This initiative will be of great interest to anyone who is passionate about the protection of endangered species and the rangers will happily tell you about their important work.


In the Lap of 5-Star Luxury


When staying with us, guests can embark on game-drive adventures, stargazing experiences, safari walks, or simply enjoy the comfort of the lodge. Each suite has its own private patio with a view of the bush and thus guests are fully immersed in nature throughout their 5-star experience. Each room includes a king-sized bed, study area, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and gorgeous furnishings which truly give it a stylish edge. When you’re not exploring the reserve, relax in the main lodge, chill by the pool, have a drink at the bar, or opt for our 5-star dining experience. Whether you’re into luxury and leisure or adventure and action, there is always fun to be found in the Welgevonden Reserve. Our lodge is also the place to be if you want to spot the famous Big 5.


While Welgevonden is the place to be if you care about conservation, you can also do it in style. Our 5-star game lodge has been created with guests in mind. With picture-perfect views of the Bushveld and multiple places to sit back and relax, our design brings relaxation to the fore. Since we’re only a 3-hour drive from Johannesburg, we’re also the perfect destination for a spontaneous weekend away with the family, or a romantic escape for two.
