Area Information:
Welgevonden Game Reserve, (Dutch for well found), is in the Waterberg District, of the Limpopo, province of South Africa. Welgevonden Game Reserve, (Dutch for "well found"), is a 38,200ha game reserve in the Waterberg District, of the Limpopo Province of South Africa.

It forms part of the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve which was officially declared by UNESCO in 2001 and currently covers an area in excess of 4000 km².

The reserve comprises mountainous terrain that is dissected by deep valleys and kloofs while flat plateaus characterise most hilltops. Altitude varies from 1080 m in the north to ±1800 m in the southern section of the reserve.

Welgevonden is home to over 50 different mammals, including the Big Five. The diversity of habitat leads to a wide range of wildlife with grassy plains abounding with antelope from the largest eland to the diminutive duiker; and cheetah, lion and leopard are regularly seen close by. There are also numerous rare and unusual species such as brown hyena, aardwolf, pangolin and aardvark – all best seen at night. Over 300 bird species can be seen on the reserve, including rare blue cranes which breed in the southern section early in the year.

We left from Jo'burg around 2pm and arrived at the main entrance around sun down at 6ish. My group arrived at the reserve a bit late at night because our driver took us to the wrong entrance initially. Definitely make sure they are going to the main gate because driving through to the other entrances requires offroading and the vans from airports do not really have the suspension for it. What really started the journey off on the right foot was the incredible staff meeting us at the main gate. Our guide, Malvin, greeted us with Biltong, Droëwors, local sparkling wine, and some hand mixed Gin and Tonics. The next thing he tells us is to look up at the sky since our eyes have probably adjusted by now. BOOM. It's the Milky Way in plain sight. I've only seen in a few times in my life and the view from the reserve was the clearest and most majestic vision of it I've seen yet. I'll make this easy. Malvin is someone I will always remember for really showing us the way.

Next morning, we begin safari early. Really early. THIS IS A BIG IMPORTANT TIP: if you are not about waking up early I suggest putting away the wine a little earlier than usual and going to sleep WAY earlier too. Safari is a healthier form of gambling. To increase the probability of amazing sightings you need patience and time to be out there a while. Your guide will use that time to show you around and track animals. More time, more animals. Starting bright and early either at 5am or 6am is super helpful and gives you time to nap when the lions do, during the hottest sun. Luckily, this is a fun easy level game. There are so many animals it is impossible to be disappointed!

Anyway, back to Safari! Bright and early we begun our journey and right away we see that the reserve is spotless and naturally kept and the animals are free and quite happy roaming as they like. We meet Ostriches, Rhinos, Elephants, Giraffes, Civet Cats, Spotted Owls, Enyala, Impala, Jackals, Zebra (pronounced ZehBruh for Americans), and then within the first hour of the morning tracking we get word of napping Lions. It was eye opening. I will let some of my photos speak for themselves but what I shall say is that you should prepare to fall in love with the planet we live on and gain plenty of perspective. This place is eye-opening and unforgettable.

It really only got better and better. The food was cooked brilliantly by Lawrence the Chef (and IT guy haha) with an unbelievable wine selection each night via Martin our drinks master. I always recommend the whites although to each their own when traveling. I will say even more about the service. They really put maximal effort in for their guests. I'm talking absolute MAXIMUM effort in service. They are pros of the highest caliber at making people feel welcome and taken care of. As evidence by my jacket incident which Sanet, the general manager, was masterful at handling.

I had left a very important piece of work clothing in Cape Town and there was little chance of finding it unless I knew where it was. Luckily, I remembered I wrote my name on it and left it at the hotel. Sanet offered to help as soon as she saw me upset at my own mistake. She called up the hotel herself and had the item couriered next day to Jo'burg where an airline staff member would facilitate handing me the item at the airport. Mind you, she did this in the middle of the bush within minutes using a satellite phone and a barely working fax machine steps away from elephants and a full view of the Milky Way! All I'm saying, is that they treated me like family and made the experience I had with my best friend and my parents very special. To all the staff and friends at Camp Ndlovu I'd like to say a big late thank you for everything! I cannot wait to visit again soon!

This visit was one of the best my wife and I have enjoyed over the years. Wanting to celebrate our anniversary and having experienced the quality of service that "The Residence" has offered in the city we felt to explore the portfolio and experience a bit of the bush especially considering this is malaria free zone.

From the time we arrived we were met with one pleasant surprise after another. The friendliness and professionalism offered by Warren and his staff was out standing.

THE ROOM - secluded from all the others and completely private with its own pool, deck, outdoor shower and bath (not to mention the indoor shower and jet bath) just left us feeling like we were royalty. The bed was as expected lush, comfortable and so perfectly complimented with nightcaps and delicious goodies that surrounded it. Where in the world could one wake up and witness elephants, deer, rhino, buffalo and so many others animals from the comfort of your bed. The room is all that you can expect and more. Its phenomenal ..!

FOOD - was outstanding and the service from my point of view was friendly. One can eat a romantic meal on the deck while overlooking the water hole....So well presented and flavorful ...

SAFARI TRIP - We got to see Lion, Cheetah, Buffalo, White Rhino among others pretty close up. Our guide filling us in every step of the way and then returning back to the hotel where were greeted again by the team with drinks and a warm clothe to freshen up.

Overall we enjoyed the room mostly as it was so well situated with its gorgeous sights and sounds of a true safari | bush experience but equipped with more than what one would expect from a luxury hotel. This was a unique experience for us and we would like to compliment the management and staff of The Residence group.

Thanks so much
