About Welbedacht Game & Nature Reserve

Welcome to Welbedacht Game & Nature Reserve.

For the more leisure visitor, just enjoy the WILDLIFE visiting your cottage from the comfort of your private deck!

                      A haven for wild birds and relaxing days , pleased we read the information folder so we weren’t freaked out by the horses galloping through the woods in the moonlight and drinking from the plunge pool at day break

                      Well equipped cottage, quaint, neat. Loved the setting and the views over the valley and neighbouring dam, the smell of the pine trees, the privacy. I prefer setting of Pine Cottage over 'Stone Cottage', as views are better and more private. Loved the splash pool, that was very welcome. What could be improved was a personal welcome, we collected keys from cupboard and never saw anyone. Was missing tall drinking glasses. Not big deal but it was very hot so it would be nice to poor a big glass of juice with ice. Fridge and bed in same room, fridge noisy, switched it off at night. Nice booklet...
