About Mhondoro Game Lodge

Mhondoro Game Lodge is a luxury 5-star accommodation in Welgevonden Game Reserve, a malaria-free and Big 5 game reserve in Limpopo, South Africa. Its main lodge and private villa have recently been rebuilt and the interior of its suites have been refurbished, offering a tasteful mix of African chic and contemporary design.The luxurious, child-friendly lodge has quickly become famous for its new underground waterhole hide, connected to the main lodge by a tunnel, offering an easy, safe and above all unique opportunity to be amongst the animals drinking at the waterhole in front of the lodge. Mhondoro is the only 5-star safari lodge that has this feature.Mhondoro is family friendly yet private and quiet to accommodate small groups to relax and explore the abundantly present wildlife during game drives. For those who prefer to indulge in ultimate relaxation or work up some sweat, the spa and gym are at your disposal, including a team of qualified and experienced beauty therapists. The pool, sauna, bar and lounge are available for all guests during the whole day. All our rooms have private en-suite bathrooms and are serviced daily. Mhondoro is located a 2 hour and 45 minutes’ drive from O.R. Tambo International Airport, making it the perfect safari destination for those who arrive in South Africa in Johannesburg. Even quicker is travelling by a small plane - it not only takes you there in less than an hour, but it also offers an amazing experience flying over the Welgevonden Game Reserve as you approach the runway.

Safari: Guests can now experience an eye-to-eye encounter with the wildlife at the waterhole, through a safe glass window. A 50 m reinforced concrete tunnel connects the waterhole to the main lodge.

Spa: A spa is available at the lodge for guests for want to be pampered, while in staying in the unspoiled African bush.

                      Once again Mhondoro Game Lodge has impressed me. Even when you are expecting a 5 star lodge with 5 star service they manage to impress and improve on your expectations.The Lodge is beautiful and the refurbishments have made it much more up to date, but what sets this Lodge apart is the amazing staff.Thank you for yet another fantastic visit .... and Sylvester 5 different types of cats in 2 days ... you are a rockstar!
