South African Game Reserves – The Ideal Holiday Experience

4 Reasons Why South African Game Reserves Offer the Ideal Holiday Experience

South African wildlife tourism is a draw for travellers from across the globe looking to experience untamed bushveld beauty and opulent holiday lodging. Game reserves are popular in this regard as they offer guests an exclusive adventure and tailored accommodation that combine a high-style getaway with the splendour of the African wilderness. If you are planning your next vacation and want something both exciting and relaxing, then South African game reserves are the way to do it.


1) Immerse Yourself in a Bushveld Adventure

Authentic safaris, facilitated by South African game reserves, give guests the chance to get up close with the scenic diversity of our bushveld. The country is home to a wide array of fauna and flora, and rich biodiversity is not only fascinating to learn about, but also to experience in person.

2) A Chance to See the Famous Big Five

Spotting the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, and leopard) has become a rite of passage for travellers on safari in South Africa. Big Five game reserves offer guests an exciting challenge to keep their eyes peeled for these magnificent creatures during safaris and enjoy memorable encounters.

3) Experience Luxury Accommodation

Nothing beats the serenity of opulent lodgings set in the heart of the bushveld. As dusk falls, fascinating creatures break their peace in a harmonious symphony of night sounds. From the haunting jackal’s call to the lively crickets that welcome the dark cheerfully, an evening in the bushveld is truly theatre. With the dawn comes tranquil sunrises where hues resembling tropical fruit blend into the brightening sky, and birds release their song into the cool morning breeze. Bushveld accommodation offers a unique way to engage with a fiercely wild landscape, without losing any of the luxurious comforts and fine dining opportunities you’d expect from a leisurely stay.

4) Support Vital Conservation Efforts

Many South African game reserves are known worldwide for their conservation efforts and environmental awareness programmes. Guests who book a stay at such reserves not only get to enjoy beautiful wildlife but help protect and conserve it too. It is also a perfect opportunity to learn more about endangered species like the rhinoceros.

Here, at the Welgevonden Game Reserve, you are invited to experience thrilling safaris and spot the Big Five – which is included in over 65 animal and 320 bird species to which we are home. We are located in the Waterberg District of the Limpopo Province, which means we are a naturally malaria-free area, and only a 2,5-hour drive or 45-minute flight from Johannesburg.
