Fifty Seven Waterberg is a Luxury Private Game Lodge like no other. Set in the heart of the Welgevonden Game Reserve, it offers guests a taste of nature as they have never experienced it before. If you are looking for an easy escape from the city and want to enjoy the wonders of the African Bush, then book your stay with us today. Located a mere three-hour drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, we are an easy weekend getaway and offer guests the chance to escape the traffic and the stress of the city.

Our luxury private game lodge boasts 5-star elegance and guests are welcome to delight in the lodge’s various facilities or enjoy their own private and spacious suite. Each room is perfectly equipped for two adults and includes luxury furnishings, a king-sized bed, a private patio, and a gorgeous ensuite bathroom. Our luxury lodge only accommodates 20 adults at a time and our 10 spacious suites thus offer privacy and tranquillity to all.

When you are not spotting the Big 5 on a game drive, you are welcome to spend time in the main lodge. Guests can relax with a book in the lounge area, take a dip in the refreshing pool, chill out on the deck chairs, or enjoy a romantic dinner or campfire in our boma enclosure. You can also delight in some stargazing or sip on cocktails at the bar. There is something for everyone at our private game lodge, and we appeal to both adventure seekers and those who want to hit the pause button on their busy lifestyle and catch up on some rest and rejuvenation.

Welgevonden Reserve: Where Luxury Meets Conservation

The Welgevonden Game Reserve is also the place to be if you are passionate about conservation and innovative solutions that aim to protect vulnerable species like the rhino. Thanks to innovative research by Wageningen University, MTN, and the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) and their Internet of things (IoT) technology, rhinos are better protected in the park. Research has found that prey animals react in different ways depending on the type of threat they encounter.

Many of these animals graze near to rhinos and are collared in order to monitor their responses to a potential threat. When their behaviour changes and stress levels rise, threats can be identified and sent to a database. As such, the rhinos remain protected. This solution also means that rhinos do not need to be collared and thus their movements remain elusive.

The Waterberg Game Reserve is located within the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, and this gorgeous area was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2001. This area is thus a must-see destination for anyone who loves exploring natural wonders and guests can enjoy game drives, walking tours, and an impressive array of fauna and flora. Our luxury private lodge offers guests ultimate comfort and charm and is the perfect pick for a romantic escape or a jam-packed weekend away with friends.
