"Our time at Sekala Private Game Lodge was an unforgettable adventure in the heart of the Welgevonden Game Reserve. Nothings beats sitting on the main deck, sipping coffee as the African sunrise paints the sky. Those early morning game drives brought us up close to lions and elephants, making each moment feel deeply personal. The lodge's family-friendly atmosphere and the refreshing rock-sculptured pool added to the overall warmth and charm of the experience."

Welgevonden Game Reserve


Rolling wooded mountains cut by deep rocky ravines and majestic gorges make Welgevonden Game Reserve an evocative piece of Africa. Aptly meaning ‘well found’, this is a place of rare and rugged beauty, plentiful wildlife and prolific birdlife. Spectacular scenery and excellent game viewing make Welgevonden quite unlike anywhere else on earth. To visit here is to experience the spirit of true wilderness.

A pleasant 2.5-hour drive or an easy 45-minute flight from Johannesburg into one of the airstrips, makes Welgevonden one of the most accessible premier malaria free wilderness reserves in the country. Welgevonden Game Reserve, (Dutch for "well found"), is a 34,850 ha game reserve in the Waterberg District, of the Limpopo Province of South Africa.
