Home to over 50 different mammals and various antelope species with a diverse birdlife to be found in the rolling bushveld terrain. It has one of the largest populations of white rhino on any private reserve in Africa!

The diversity of habitat leads to a wide range of wildlife with grassy plains abounding with antelope from the largest eland to the diminutive duiker; all of which attract the large predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah are regularly seen close by. There are also numerous rare and unusual species such as brown hyena, aardwolf, pangolin and aardvark – all best seen at night. Over 300 bird species can be seen on the reserve, including rare blue cranes which breed in the southern section early in the year.

Welgevonden Reserve Lodge

Big 5 safari days!

The 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. 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. The elevated position offers beautiful and uninterrupted views over the reserve and up the Waterberg escarpment.

The Lodge was built using eco-friendly, ‘green’ products and runs off solar power and blends into the surrounds with low impact on the environment. All paints and consumables used for the construction and running of the lodge are eco-friendly and no hard woods were used. Even the sewerage system is eco-friendly. Efforts have been made to give the lodge a low carbon footprint by making use of solar power which is a renewable energy source and a nearby borehole for water.

The main lodge boasts a comfortable lounge and reception area with large viewing deck and swimming pool. Relax on the loungers around the pool while you may be lucky to see animals moving in to the local waterhole. As evening approaches enjoy a sundowner at the bar or move out on game drive in search of the many species which occur within the reserve. The lodge is unfenced and offers a real nature experience.

This is an exclusive lodge, catering for a maximum of 10 guests in well positioned and well-appointed luxury tents. 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. Natural & rustic finishes blend perfectly with the environment. Since this is an eco-lodge and is completely solar run, it thus cannot run high voltage appliances. Guests with hair dryers and similar products that use many Watts will be requested to leave their appliances in the vehicle at the gate or to not use it.

The lodge is unfenced and in a big 5 area and guests may not walk out of the vicinity of the lodge at any time. Their movements are restricted between the top tent and the bottom tent if there is not a staff member with them and it is advisable to stay on the pathways. At night time, guests are advised to not walk around unnecessarily and to allow a staff member to walk them to their tents after dark. Guests should be aware of their surroundings. Animals such as elephants occasionally walk around the camp and they can also watch out for snakes, scorpions and baboons. Please keep tents or rooms closed .

It’s a truly awe-inspiring experience – the sight, the sound, the smell; the humbling feeling that here indeed is Nature’s Supreme Masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict the reality…and nothing prepares you for your first sight. .

The Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe - the largest sheet of falling water in the world and significant worldwide for its exceptional geological and geomorphological features and active land formation processes with outstanding beauty attributed to the falls i.e. the spray, mist and rainbows.

David Livingstone, was the first European to see the Victoria Falls in 1855. The Scottish explorer, is believed to have been the first European to view the falls, and he named them Victoria Falls in honor of Queen Victoria.

Known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya or "the smoke that thunders" because of the spray made by the mass of water dropping 100 meters below in the gorges. 50 Years later, missionaries and traders settled in the small Zambian town of Livingstone and the railway bridge over the Zambezi was built.

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK & CHOBE RIVER

Safari in spectacular Chobe!

The Chobe National Park established in 1968 covers 11,700 square kilometers and is situated in the northern most part of Botswana. Park stretches from the tip of northern Botswana to the fringes of the Okavango Delta. It has a wide range of distinctive landscapes, from the emerald floodplains of the Chobe River to the sweeping grasslands of the Savuti Marsh and skeletal leadwood trees in the Savuti Channel.
Encompassing swamps, floodplains and woodlands it is the third largest Park or Reserve in the country after Kgalagadi Transfontier Park and the largest of them all the Central Kalahari Game reserve.

With such varied environments and habitats there’s a magnificent array of wildlife. A profusion of palatable grass species attracts a variety of herbivores, including wildebeest, impala, kudu, waterbuck, giraffe, and tsessebe. The puku is found, as is the endemic Chobe bushbuck. Predator sightings are good, with leopard, cheetah, wild dog, and large prides of lion that hunt elephant. From servals to side-striped jackals, the list is endless.

All that said, Chobe is most famous for its elephant and buffalo populations, both of which can herd in mammoth proportions. With an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 elephants, these gentle giants constantly surround you. In the dry season the Chobe River sees thousands lining the banks and crossing the water. Boat trips at this time provide excellent photograph opportunities.

The Chobe River, which is without doubt one of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, forms its northern boundary and in the extreme south-west it borders the Moremi Game Reserve. The park is famous for its wildlife and supports a diversity and concentration unlike anywhere else in Botswana. In the dry winter months over 50 000 elephants can converge on the Chobe River to drink - an awe-inspiring sight.

Chobe River House Boat

Chobe river safari days!

This boat takes your Chobe River game viewing experience to another level!With no set itinerary and only a small number of guests per boat, staying here feels like being on your own houseboat – and a very well appointed one! The entire boat can also be booked exclusively, giving you your very own private villa on the water. As you drift down the Chobe River and spot incredible wildlife scenes, you’ll be able to completely relax in an intimate river safari experience.

Each houseboat has a minimum of two smaller “tender” boats for use on daily excursions that take your fancy: mark off over 450 bird species found in this wetland paradise, try your hand at landing a tiger fish, or capture Africa’s unique beauty on a photographic safari. Whatever you choose to do, your day trips will be personal and flexible because you’ll be sharing the tender boats with a small number of guests. Alternatively, simply laze on a deck chair with an ice-cold drink in hand as you soak up the tranquility that surrounds you.

Each cabin is tastefully decorated in a contemporary style, and each has its own private view onto the ever-changing landscapes beyond.
As you lie on your king-sized bed, spot an elephant grazing on the riverbank nearby, or see a fish eagle diving for its prey. On the upper entertainment deck, a spacious lounge and bar area encourages you to take time out while there’s also a plunge pool that’s perfect for a refreshing dip. After a day spent doing as you please, fall asleep with the calls of hyena or even a lion drifting through the open doors of your cabin.

The crew will pamper you with unaffected warmth and generosity, doing whatever they can to make this trip memorable. And as if their hospitality alone isn’t something to remember, the wildlife viewing will definitely remain in your memories for a lifetime. As you drift down the Chobe River, you will be exposed to incredible game viewing from several mooring points along the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers. Hop on the smaller tender boats and view wildlife from the water: a completely different experience from a game drive, as animals are more relaxed and at ease.
