Wow!! What a wonderful lodge with wonderful staff and wonderful food! We had an amazing couple of days and were treated like gold by everybody. We have been to a few safari lodges and this ranks among the best for us, and is certainly value for money.
The lodge is small and intimate, but in a good way. It is in a good location and has awesome views. The rooms were absolutely wonderful and the outside shower was just a treat! The view from our room was magnificent and so tranquil. It was very tastefully decorated and we felt like we were sleeping in luxury in the middle of the bush. The main common area was very comfortable inside and outside, even on cold winter nights. I loved how the staff minded us, but were considerate enough to also give us space. There was never a time when we were thirsty or hungry.
The game drives were lots of fun and we saw 3 of the big 5, but lots of other animals too. Barend (our ranger) was sure to educate us with facts about birds, trees and survival techniques in the bush. The animals look healthy and the Welgevonden reserve is very well looked after. If I could have had it my way, we would have spent the WHOLE day in the thick of the bush tracking animals.
