Part of the famous Waterberg region, Welgevonden Game Reserve is home to lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo as well as a rich variety of other animals and an impressive bird list.
Complete with spa, gym, pool and safari shop, Mhondoro Game Lodge offers family-friendly accommodation as well as suites that are suitable for discerning couples and honeymooners.
