Mhondoro Lodge

Mhondoro Game Lodge features luxury, 5-star accommodation in Welgevonden Game Reserve, a malaria-free Big 5 game reserve in Limpopo, South Africa. The main lodge and private villa have been extensively rebuilt in 2015 and the interior of the suites have been refurbished, offering an elegant mélange of chic African and contemporary European design.

The luxurious yet child-friendly lodge has rapidly become renowned for its new underground waterhole hide, connected to the main lodge by a tunnel. This unique feature offers an accessible, safe and one-of-a-kind opportunity to be right up close to the animals drinking at the waterhole in front of the lodge. Mhondoro Game Lodge is the only 5-star safari lodge that has this feature.

Mhondoro Game Lodge is family friendly yet private and exclusive, allowing small groups to relax and explore the abundant wildlife during game drives. Welgevonden Game Reserve has a strict policy limiting game drive vehicles on the Reserve which allows for exclusive, peaceful game drives unhindered by vehicle traffic.

For those who prefer to indulge in blissful relaxation or have a bracing workout, the spa and gym are at your disposal, including a team of experienced beauty therapists. The heated pool, sauna, bar and lounge are available for all guests throughout the day.

Mhondoro Game Lodge is located a 2-hour 45-minute drive from O.R. Tambo International Airport, making it the perfect safari destination for those who arrive in South Africa via Johannesburg. Even faster is travelling by a small plane – you’ll arrive in less than an hour and you’ll also have the breathtaking experience of flying over the Waterberg and Welgevonden Game Reserve en route.
