The Mhondoro Villa is perfectly suited as an exclusive family or group accommodation where you are looked after from beginning to end. The exclusivity of the Mhondoro Villa means that all meals and selected local drinks, a private pool, a private gym and yoga room, a private game view with ranger, a private chef, a private butler and housekeeping staff, are all included. The Mhondoro Villa is booked at a fixed price for one to four guests. Additional guests are charged per the specified surcharge per season. The Mhondoro Villa boasts a magnificent master suite and two additional bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms.
Mhondoro Safari Lodge & Villa is a luxurious, five-star private Safari Lodge and Villa situated within the malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve in Limpopo, South Africa. After a devastating fire in 2013 the whole lodge was rebuilt and completed in 2015, and the interiors decorated in an ‘African Chic ‘style – an elegant mix of African design and contemporary European design.
The sophisticated, yet child-friendly lodge, is known for its underground waterhole hide, which is connected to the Main Lodge by a tunnel. This unique feature offers an accessible, safe and one-of-a-kind opportunity to get up close to the animals drinking at the waterhole in front of the lodge. Mhondoro Safari Lodge is the first and only five-star Safari Lodge to offer this exciting and special experience.
Mhondoro Safari Lodge is family friendly, yet is private and exclusive, enabling guests to relax and explore abundant wildlife on guided game drives. Welgevonden Game Reserve’s strict policy limiting the number of vehicles on the Reserve, enhances the exclusive and peaceful game drives and ensures there will be no interruptions from vehicle traffic.
For those preferring to indulge in blissful relaxation, there is a Spa and Wellness Massage Suite where a team of experienced beauty therapists offer treatments to help you unwind. Or perhaps a bracing workout at the fully equipped gym will suit those wishing to stay in shape while viewing the animal activity at the waterhole. The heated pool, sauna, bar and lounge areas are available to all guests throughout the day.
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.
