Situated in the heart of the Waterberg conservancy, near the small town of Vaalwater, is Welgevonden, a 37 500 hectare wilderness have of rolling wooded mountains, deep rocky ravines and majestic gorges. This reserve is home to over 50 different species of mammals, including the big five, and boasts one of the largest population of white rhino on a private reserve anywhere in Africa. Antelope abound on the grassy plains, ranging from the majestic eland to the diminutive duiker, drawing predators such as cheetah, leopard and lion, which are always close by. There are also over 250 species of birds including rare blue cranes, making this the bird watcher’s paradise.
Historically, game has never been hunted since the reserve’s establishment, so game viewing is always close up and personal. Besides game viewing, there are also numerous bushmen art sites on the properly. Together with the numerous five star lodges offering top accommodation and only two hours from Johannesburg, malaria free Welgevonden offers something different to the discerning visitor.
Something that will go down as memorable.
