Luxury Game Lodge Accommodation in the Welgevonden Reserve


If you’re on the hunt for luxurious accommodation and a true African adventure, you’ve come to the right place. Fifty Seven Waterberg’s 5-star accommodation is nestled in the heart of the Waterberg and this spectacular natural wonder was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2011. If you’re the type of traveller who delights in adventurous game drives, peaceful meanders through the veld, cocktails by the pool, and dinner under the stars, our luxury game lodge should certainly be the next stop on your travel agenda.

If you’re looking for accommodation that’s a cut above the rest, we’re the lodge for you. Our 10 private suites are spacious and they offer each couple a private patio with a stunning view of the Bushveld, a study area and desk for any work-related tasks, coffee- and tea-making facilities, a king-sized bed, and immaculate furnishings for total luxury. When you’re not basking in the luxury of your private room, you’re welcome to relax in the main lodge. Here guests can unwind in our lounge, have a dip in our pool, or sunbathe on the deck. There’s something for everyone at Fifty Seven Waterberg, whether you’re ready for a game-spotting adventure or prepared to unwind. Our accommodation caters to everyone.


Take a Walk on the Wild Side and Spot the Big 5 on a Game Drive


When you’re not enjoying the luxury of your private suite or revelling in the beauty of the main lodge, you can explore the magnificence of Welgevonden – as seen on MTN’s latest TV ad – and go on a game drive. Spot the famous Big 5 (namely the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, Cape buffalo, and elephant) or some of the other incredible species that roam the reserve. The rhino is, of course, the reason MTN shot their ad at Welgevonden and we are proud of the cutting-edge new collar technology used to save these threatened behemoths from extinction.


The park is the first in the world to utilise Internet of Things (IoT) technology to track the rhinos and ensure that they are safe from poachers, using anti-poaching technology created by MTN and the University of Wageningen. It is an innovative feat that aims to protect these endangered mammals. Trackers are placed on prey animals who graze near the rhinos and when they feel threatened, this response is captured and sent to a database. Since the rhinos themselves aren’t collared, their exact location is never divulged. This cutting-edge innovation is inspiringly illustrated in the stunning MTN ad.
