Centrally located within the Welgevonden Game Reserve is the exclusive-use Shibula Private Game Lodge. This Malaria-free zone is home to the Big 5 and is only a short two-and-a-half-hour drive north of Johannesburg.

This perfectly positioned lodge provides breath-taking scenery, with views overlooking the source of the Taaibos River along with a strategically placed waterhole in front of the main lodge that is frequented by wildlife. The lodge is close to the best game viewing areas of the Welgevonden Game Reserve, and the surrounding area has the largest concentration of leopard in the reserve. Elephant and cheetah are also often seen close to the lodge.

The establishment is a private, family-friendly, self-catering lodge that is booked as a whole – for just you and your travelling party’s exclusive use.

Indulge in a bush safari experience that caters for avid bush lovers and those just wanting to spend quality time away with friends in a unique environment.

Luxurious, Unique Suites

When staying at the lodge you can choose between a variety of en-suite chalets to suit your requirements. Six chalets are positioned around the main lodge area, four with double beds, one family chalet with an interleading children’s room, and the Executive Suite which consists of two en-suite rooms with a lounge and private swimming pool. In total – the lodge accommodates up to 14 adults per night.

All chalets are serviced daily, and linen and towels are provided.


Shibula Private Lodge proudly presents self-catering on a whole new level. Although you will be responsible for supplying your own food and beverages, all your meals are prepared for you by our resident cook. You decide together with the cook what is planned for each meal, what time suits you to eat, as well as if you want to dine in the lodge or at the outside boma.


Morning and afternoon game drives in an open safari vehicle invite you to experience the exhilarating wild of the Welgevonden Game Reserve.

Once you return to the main lodge, enjoy a swim in the refreshing swimming pool, or relax in the intimate lounge area on the deck overlooking the waterhole.

In constant wonder – even when night falls you can enjoy the spectacular sight of the African sky unfolding around you.

Family Travel

The lodge is perfect for families with children. Along with the exclusivity of the lodge – children of any age are welcome!
