Welgevonden boasts some of the most luxurious, secluded and sustainable accommodation options in South Africa, with a number of private five star lodges to choose from, most of which are limited to a maximum of ten guests.

All of the reserve’s lodges sit on their own freehold and unfenced portion of this vast reserve and have access to the whole sanctuary. All have been built with the strictest attention  to the aesthetic code set by the magnificent, wild surroundings.

First-class fine dining, world-class wines and superb service are a feature at all of Welgevonden’s lodges, while most also offer a variety of luxury spa and wellness offerings. Above all, booking at Welgevonden gurantees unparelleled peace and privacy in the South African bushveld, not to mention some spectacularly unspoilt vistas.

Between them, Welgevonden’s lodges also offer a range of different day and night game drive options, bush breakfasts and dinners, bird watching, walking safaris and even a well-stocked library if you fancy a day/night in.

Whatever luxury accommodation option you chose, there can be nowhere better to escape the fast pace of the city and unwind in the unadulterated African bushveld.
