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.

Pitse Lodge


Pitse Lodge is situated in the malaria-free 37000 hectare Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Limpopo Province. Welgevonden forms part of the spectacular Waterberg Region and borders on the Marakele National Park.

The lodge can accommodate 10 people, with 5 luxurious stone and thatch houses, all with en-suite bathrooms, outside showers and their own private wooden decks. Two of the units are joined by an entrance hall, ideally suited to families with children.

Lion, elephant, white rhino, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, eland, kudu and many other species of game occur in the area. There are occasional sightings of leopard and cheetah. Welgevonden has an extensive bird and plant species list. In the Pitse area there are unique populations of blue cranes, secretary birds and Cape Vultures. The lodge is well known for its large presence of white rhino, which often graze very close to the lodge.

  • Daily game drives are arranged to suit you.
  • Day trips can be arranged into other areas of the park as well as the Marakele National Park where you can visit the breeding camps of the endangered roan and sable antelope.
  • All meals are prepared by our chef at the lodge. The freshest produce is used and we make use of organic herbs and vegetables from our own garden, wherever possible.
