There are five double/twin rooms at the lodge, which can accommodate a maximum of ten guests.  

Unfortunately, no additional guests can be accommodated as the Reserve Rules states that a maximum of ten people should occupy the lodge at any given time.

What to Bring?

Welgevonden is about the same elevation as Pretoria and therefore has a similar weather pattern.   
The winters are pleasant and usually dry, although cold to freezing temperatures can be experienced during game drives. 
Bring warm clothes, including gloves, beanies/hats and jackets.  
The days are however pleasant, shorts and t-shirts are sufficient.  
Summers are hot, so swimming costumes and sunscreen are a must.
Binoculars, cameras and bird books will also come in handy.


After the morning game drive return to a delicious breakfast with platters of fruits, cold meats & cheese followed by a selection of hot breakfast dishes.  

Lunch is served on the veranda outside with the beautiful tranquil sound of the river in the background. Lunch is a light affair.

Dinners alternate between a mouth-watering traditional braai around a blazing fire in the boma or a slightly more intimate gourmet dinner by candlelight in the dining room or on the veranda. 

Please be sure to inform us of any dietary requirements e.g. Halaal, Vegetarian etc. so we can ensure that we cater for all your needs.

Children are welcome however, guests will be accountable for the well-being of their children, as there are no babysitting facilities at the lodge.  

Children under the age of 5 years are not permitted to go on game drives.  In these instances, one of the parents will be requested to remain at the lodge with their children/child.

There is no pool net and a high “drop-off” area on the side of the pool and young children will therefore need constant parental supervision.

Parents are requested to cater for any special dietary requirements that their infants or small children may have.


There is an electric fence around the lodge, however there is no guarantee that it will ward off all dangerous animals.   Guests are requested to bear this in mind and to be cautious when on foot.


Guests have access to Wi-Fi in the lodge main area via a VSAT system.  Please note there is no Cell signal at the lodge.  There is a landline in the office at the managers house for emergencies.


The lodge meeting room seats 10 guests. Projector, note pads, pens and flipcharts are provided.
