What an incredible place. We went for two nights over the Easter weekend and what a treat. By far and away the best game lodge I have been to in South Africa. We were a group of four and took the large suite, with two rooms and a jacuzzi. What could be better than having a jacuzzi and looking across the watering hole.
Sylvester and Melvin were wonderful drivers and trackers. Precious and her team cooked us delicious meal after delcious meal. Everything is included in the price, so you can be as indulgent as you want.
If you are lucky, you get to eat dinner in the boma around the bonfire.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mhondoro Game Lodge is a luxury 5-star accommodation in Welgevonden Game Reserve, a malaria-free and Big 5 game reserve in Limpopo, South Africa. Its main lodge and private villa have recently been rebuilt and the interior of its suites have been refurbished, offering a tasteful mix of African chic and contemporary design. The luxurious, child-friendly lodge has quickly become famous for its new underground waterhole hide, connected to the main lodge by a tunnel, offering an easy, safe and above all unique opportunity to be amongst the animals drinking at the waterhole in front of the lodge. Mhondoro is the only 5-star safari lodge that has this feature. Mhondoro is family friendly yet private and quiet to accommodate small groups to relax and explore the abundantly present wildlife during game drives. For those who prefer to indulge in ultimate relaxation or work up some sweat, the spa and gym are at your disposal, including a team of qualified and experienced beauty therapists. The pool, sauna, bar and lounge are available for all guests during the whole day. Mhondoro is located a 2 hour and 45 minutes' drive from O.R. Tambo International Airport, making it the perfect safari destination for those who arrive in South Africa in Johannesburg. Even quicker is travelling by a small plane - it not only takes you there in less than an hour, but it also offers an amazing experience flying over the Welgevonden Game Reserve as you approach the runway. ... more less
