This South Africa safari special offer is for stays at the malaria-free Makweti Safari Lodge in the Welgevonden Game Reserve of four nights or more at reduced rates, early bird offer and exclusive use special.

Makweti Safari Lodge - lion on safari Makweti Safari Lodge is located in the 37,000 hectare Welgevonden Private Reserve in the Waterberg area of the Limpopo Province of South Africa. Join us for a malaria-free safari - an easy 3 hour drive from Johannesburg.

Intimate and luxurious, Makweti Safari Lodge has five stone and thatch suites each providing indoor and outdoor showers, Victorian bathtubs, fireplaces and private decks. Fine dining and an extensive selection of wines are available.

Evenings may bring elephant, lion, rhino and other game right to your doorstep at the waterhole. Safaris in this big 5 area are conducted in open safari vehicles with expert guides. The camp is unfenced, therefore expect the unexpected!
Welgevonden forms part of the greater, UNESCO-declared Waterberg Biosphere Reserve.  This biosphere is characterised by high-plateau geology, magnificent cloudscapes, crystalline streams and an immense diversity of wild species.  (While perfect for indigenous plants and animals, the Waterberg’s soils are largely unsuitable for farming or forestry – hence the region has remained unspoiled across the centuries.)
The evocative wilderness area offers an exclusive, intimate experience of the African bush with only a limited number of guests having access to the reserve at any one time. No private vehicles are permitted, which ensures minimal human impact and the ultimate wilderness experience. There is also ancient and delicate Bushman rock art on Welgevonden.
Welgevonden is home to over 50 different mammals, including the Big Five. There are rare and unusual species too, such as brown hyena, pangolin, aardwolf and aardvark .
