Inzalo Safari Lodge is an intimate tented luxury lodge in the spectacular Welgevonden Game Reserve, a vast 40,000 hectare ‘Big Five’ protected wilderness within the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere of South Africa’s scenic Limpopo Province.
A mere 2.5-hour drive or an easy 45-minute flight from Johannesburg into one of the reserve’s two airstrips, makes the Welgevonden one of the most accessible premier malaria-free reserves in the country.
Inzalo Lodge, a Zulu name suggesting "to be reborn", is situated along the crystal clear Sterkstroom River, where each of the five luxurious tented safari suites provides panoramic views of the river and Waterberg sandstone cliff beyond. The main lodge is an airy and welcoming retreat, with large open spaces extending onto an expansive deck and bar area with spectacular views. The décor and design combine modern comforts with understated luxury to create warm and inviting spaces where guests can mingle, dine, enjoy a refreshing beverage or simply soak in the views.
Each of the lodge’s five custom-designed tented safari suites have been positioned to provide maximum privacy, solitude and breath-taking views. Each suite features a private deck with splash pool, en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, spacious bedroom, lounge area, well-stocked bar fridge and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The Welgevonden Game Reserve, located just three hours’ north of Johannesburg in the Limpopo Province’s Waterberg plateau, is one of the most ruggedly scenic reserves in South Africa, characterised by rolling hills, rugged gorges and grassy plains.
Aptly meaning ‘well found’, the Welgevonden is unlike anywhere else on earth, a true wilderness area with excellent game viewing and stunning scenery. Enjoy this mountain bushveld environment with roaring rivers and sweeping horizon views. The reserve is located at high altitude, enjoys a mild climate and is Malaria free making it worth a visit any time of the year.
As a result of the reserve’s diverse landscapes, visitors can enjoy Big Five sightings, in addition to encounters with over 50 mammal species, 250 bird species and some of the bush’s most beautiful wildflowers that make their appearance in early spring.
The Welgevonden also boasts one of Africa’s largest populations of white rhino on a private reserve, with such unusual species as brown hyena, aardwolf and aardvark also located within the reserve. The reserve has never been a hunting area and as such game viewing is up and close and personal. In addition to great game viewing, there is also ancient San Rock Art.
This is Africa at its most interesting and at its best.
