About Wild Ivory Eco Lodge

Wild Ivory Eco Lodge is a private and exclusive bush lodge situated in Welgevonden Game Reserve which is a well-established Big 5 game reserve in the Limpopo Province of South Africa and in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere.

The lodge is elevated and overlooks a wooded plain and private waterhole. The elevated position offers beautiful and uninterrupted views over the reserve and up the Waterberg escarpment. Wild Ivory is one of the few lodges in South Africa which is eco-friendly and low impact. The lodge has natural, rustic finishes and the main lodge has a large raised deck with swimming pool, sunken boma and elevated view of the waterhole and plains below.

Accommodation is in luxury tents which are more like canvas lodge rooms with lovely views and very well-acquainted bathrooms. Large double beds and outside lounges allow you complete comfort and relaxation in a true wilderness setting. Dinners are around the campfire and traditional South African meals are served in the main lodge. Self-catering group packages are also available. The rates include two game activities with one of our game rangers.

The lodge and all materials used are eco-friendly and completely ‘green’. The lodge blends in to the surrounds and has a low impact on the environment; effort has been made to ensure the lodge is sustainable and has a very low carbon footprint. It makes use of solar powered renewable energy and sustainable borehole water with solar supply, enviro-friendly paints and consumables have been used. No hard woods have been used in construction and there is a completely sustainable water supply with an eco-friendly sewerage system.

In addition to the Big 5, there are numerous other species which occur within the reserve. It also offers some of the best rhino and cheetah sightings in Southern Africa. The Wild Ivory Eco Lodge is positioned in one of the ‘sweeter’ bushveld areas in the western section of the reserve, with an abundance of plains game which will in turn attract the large number of predator species which occur in the reserve.

Safari: In addition to the Big 5, there are numerous other species which occur within the reserve. It also offers some of the best rhino and cheetah sightings in Southern Africa.

It was great from the the pick up to the drop off. Clodia, Nelly and TJ were the best and we enjoyed every second of our short stay there. The only problem was that we needed to come back! This place will definitely see us again.
