Limpopo Lodge | Big 5 Safaris in the Waterberg

Experience a Unique Wilderness Adventure in a Limpopo Lodge


Just a 45-minute flight from Johannesburg is an untamed wilderness teeming with exotic wildlife, and you can experience it in comfort at a Limpopo lodge. Nestled in the heart of the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, the 36 000-hectare Welgevonden private game reserve is a malaria-free wildlife paradise that offers visitors a choice of more than 25 well-appointed lodges and a host of exciting activities.


Welgevonden is not a typical South African game reserve. It doesn’t accept day visitors, and trained guides in estate-owned vehicles conduct all travel within the park’s perimeter. Furthermore, the park’s policy is to limit the number of guests to ensure privacy and quiet when required and provide a more personalised experience. Let’s examine the facilities and range of activities guests will enjoy at this fascinating Waterberg venue.


The Facilities at a Luxury Limpopo Lodge


Given the wide choice, options differ between lodges. For example, the Tintswealo Family Camp is designed for large groups of up to 20 parents and children and is ideal for a shared family holiday with friends. Some, like Morala Lodge, are self-catering, while others have restaurants. Ekuthuleni Lodge and Kololo Game Reserve are two of five popular conference venues at Welgevonden. However, the following facilities are available to ensure our guests are always comfortable:

Attractions at Limpopo Lodges in Welgevonden Game Reserve


Our guests are spoiled for choice when deciding what to do. Wildlife viewing is naturally a priority, so our experienced guides conduct morning and evening game drives. For the more adventurous, we offer game walks and horseback safaris as an alternative, while some lodges can provide trail bikes and guides. Welgevonden is an exceptional South African game reserve where guests can meet the iconic Big Five”.


The park is home to 100 species of reptiles, frogs and fish, 320 bird species, over 65 mammal species, and innumerable exotic flora, and also offers other fascinating options.


  • Astronomy: Guests can explore the breathtaking African night sky with our state-of-the-art 8-inch telescope.
  • Archaeology: Visiting the nearby escarpment offers guests a chance to view 2000-year-old Khoi San rock art.
