The Official Welgevonden Game Reserve Website




Welgevonden Game Reserve lies in the Waterberg plateau,
just north of Johannesburg, South Africa.
Our guests enjoy unlimited traversing through the 34,850ha reserve and experience an environment where biodiversity conservation and game viewing are managed in harmony.

Ekuthuleni Lodge & Tshwene Lodge


Our two lodges, within close proximity of one another, offer combined facilities for small groups of 20, or alternatively, each can intimately cater for 10 guests. After returning from a game drive led by a qualified ranger, you will be welcomed back to pure luxury and comfort.  

Tshwene Lodge guests can unwind on the large wooden deck with magnificent views, or wallow in the cool pool, whilst watching game passing by. At Ekuthuleni Lodge you are always looking over splendid grass plains and a water hole, whether you are in the main lodge, bedrooms or at the pool area. Two game drives per day are included in the tariffs.

The two main lodges, each with elegantly furnished casual lounges and dining rooms, include a large central fireplace which creates an intimate, cosy atmosphere on chilly winter nights. Our gourmet chef prepares 3 scrumptious meals per day inclusive, with fine cuisine served on the outdoor terrace on many occasions.

In summer enjoy a starlit, balmy evening with the sounds of wildlife, while savoring dinner around the boma. In winter you can relax in front of the open fires enjoying some excellent wines from our cellar.


From the two main lodges, the cobbled pathways lead to a separate collection of individually exclusive chalets which offer total privacy. Each of the 11 chalets have en-suite bathrooms with romantic baths and indoor and outdoor private showers, which open onto a secluded natural bush garden.

Every care is taken to ensure that your stay is uninterrupted by the demands of the outside world.
