Activities/Attractions: A short 2.5 hour drive or 1 hour flight from Lanseria Airport is all that separates the fast-paced metropolis of Johannesburg from the calm green eden that is Welgevonden Private Game Reserve. Cool refreshments await your arrival at the main gates where you will transfer to your open game vehicle and leave the city behind. There are 37,000 hectares of unspoiled African bushveld ranging from rocky outcrops where the leopards watch from their hidden crevices to wide open savannah where the herds of Zebra, Wildebeest and Impala abound.
Driving through the reserve in the 4
wheel drive game viewing vehicle, after your arrival at the main gate, you
will be treated to your first sighting of the reserve's permanent
residents: Impala, Warthog, Giraffe, Rhino, Kudu, Eland, Elephant and many
others. Bush walks are offered with fully qualified rangers. These vary
with the weather and the desires of the guests. Along with some of the
larger animals you may well see some of the "Little Five"-
Elephant Shrew, Leopard Tortoise, Rhino Beetle, Buffalo Weaver and Ant
"This was one of the greatest weekends of our life. We saw 3 of the Big 5 in one day and saw a lovely landscape and beautiful sundowners."
"Never in our lives will we see the animals we’ve seen here in just 3 days. It was definitely an experience we’ll remember forever."
"This has been an absolutely awesome African experience! I will never forget our close encounter with a male bull Ellie! Great food, excellent wine & superb company."
"What a superb place. We feel privileged to have enjoyed such an experience."
"We have found our Shangri La. The setting, the accommodation, the animals, but most of all the people make this a special place."
