The Reserve - Welgevonden is one of the largest privately owned reserves in South Africa, covering 37 000 hectares of pristine bushveld in the malaria-free Waterberg region. Welgevonden is home to over 50 different mammals, including the Big Five, and boasts one of the largest populations of white rhino on a private reserve anywhere in Africa. There are rare and unusual species too, such as brown hyena, aardwolf and aardvark. It is the diversity of habitat on the reserve that encourages such a wide range of wildlife as well as over 300 bird species. No private vehicles are permitted, which ensures minimal human impact and the ultimate wilderness experience. Historically, wildlife on the reserve has never been hunted so game viewing is always up close and personal. There is also ancient and delicate Bushman rock art on Welgevonden.

Beautiful - The Reserve is well kept and not too busy. It is a wonderful balance of being out in nature (as it is not overrun with tourists) and the wonderful variety of Lodges offers something for everyone. We unfortunately did not see any of the newly introduced buffalo, but I am sure once they have settled in and grown up they will be yet another wonderful sight in the park.

The ultimate luxury Africa Safari experience - Welgevonden Game Reserve is a private game reserve, situated in the Waterberg area. The drive to Welgevonden is a mere 3 hours and once you have entered the heart of the bushveld, you will never want to leave. It is a Big 5 Game reserve with great sightings with animals in their natural environment. Most of the lodge's on the Welgevonden Private Game reserve are very exclusive and private and you will easily feel like the only person on the earth.
