Welgevonden Private Game Reserve


Welgevonden Private Game Reserve is 37,500 hectares in size and lies in the Waterberg plateau, just north of Johannesburg in a Malaria free area. Only a limited number of guests have access to the reserve at any one time and no private vehicles are permitted, which ensures minimal human impact and the ultimate wilderness experience.

Welgevonden is home to over 50 different mammals, including the Big Five, and boasts one of the largest populations of white rhino on a private reserve anywhere in Africa. There are rare and unusual species too, such as brown hyena, aardwolf and aardvark – all best seen at night. The grassy plains abound with antelope from the largest eland to the diminutive duiker, and cheetah, lion and leopard are always close by. It is the diversity of habitat on the reserve that encourages such a wide range of wildlife as well as over 250 bird species, including rare blue cranes.
