The Waterberg – incredibly scenic and free of malaria – is a protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserve resting against a breathtaking canvas of four mountain ranges.  The Waterberg is home to the game reserves of Welgevonden, Entabeni and Lapalala Wilderness, all of which provide superb safari experiences and wilderness getaways. These range from ultra-luxurious safaris to the more rustic bush experiences.

The area is a haven for ecotourism, where the welfare of the environment, wildlife and community remain paramount. Go on a once-in-a-lifetime safari, and once in the area visit intriguing rock-art sites, go in search of more than 300 species of birds, and visit the nearby Nylsvlei wetlands.

The Welgevonden Reserve is an exquisite piece of paradise, made up of rolling wooded mountains, deep rocky ravines and majestic gorges. Meaning ‘well found’, the Welgevonden is a place of beauty, abundant wildlife and many varieties of birdlife. The reserve is home to over 50 different mammals, including the Big Five, and has one of the largest populations of white rhino anywhere in Africa. More recently cheetah have been successfully released on Welgevonden and have become an additional game viewing attraction.

Makweti Safari Lodge, Mhondoro Game Lodge and Shibula Lodge & Bush Spa are among the wonderful lodges in the Welgevonden.

Entabeni Safari Conservancy spans over 22 000 hectares of bushveld, ravines, wetlands and wooded hills and offers accommodation in six distinct lodges. One of Entabeni’s drawcards is a maginificent golf course in the heart of Big Five territory. For groups and families, Yellow Wood Game Lodge provides a very affordable and comfortable bush stay in a supremely beautiful area.
