MAKWETI SAFARI LODGE

THE LODGE
Privately owned and operated, Makweti is for the true safari connoisseur in search of diverse wildlife and a Big 5 experience. The main lodge is built from natural rock with teak decks overhanging the dramatic Makweti Gorge. Rare African art, antique furnishings, rich woods, leather and woven textures create a homely elegance. Secluded stone and thatched chalets are stylishly decorated and offer the luxury of an escape from a busy world. Indoor and outdoor showers, Victorian bathtubs, log fires and viewing decks, some with private plunge pools make this a popular honeymoon destination. Twice daily safaris in open vehicles or on foot combine a landscape experience with excellent game viewing. Watch game at the waterhole from the luxury of the Indaba deck. Savour gourmet cuisine under the stars in the boma or in a candlelit dining room, whilst sipping an estate wine from the cellar. Makweti is a relaxing and romantic wildlife retreat. Scheduled flights, to an airstrip within the reserve, or an easy 3-hour drive from Johannesburg. This region forms part of the Waterberg Biosphere, declared a Natural Heritage Site.

THE RESERVE
Welgevonden Game Reserve is a declared heritage site of 37 000 hectares, malaria free, adjoining the Marakele National Park in the breathtaking Waterberg Biosphere, in Limpopo Province. A true bushveld environment and home to Africa’s most sought after game species, with one of the largest collections of white rhino. Join a guided safari or specialised bush walk with an experienced ranger to view elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, eland and many other antelope species with the opportunity to spot the aardvark, brown hyena or the rarely seen honey badger and bush pig.
