The reserve also houses the remaining four animals that make up Africa’s Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo.

The exclusive, 5-star Nedile Lodge can accommodate 10 guests in 5 luxurious rooms. Nedile’s stylish suites have been positioned perfectly between rocky outcrops on a north-facing slope, and are complimented perfectly by breathtaking views of the Waterberg Mountains.
Two of the suites may be used as family units with an inter-leading entrance hall. Each suite at Nedile has been designed for complete privacy, relaxation and comfort, and has a private deck, fireplace, ceiling fan, indoor and outdoor showers, and an invitingly luxurious bathroom.
The main lodge at Nedile, with its African theme, comprises a bar, dining room and comfortable lounge, and invites guests to sit back, relax and take in the peace and tranquility of the surroundings, all while experiencing the warmth of South African hospitality.
The 36 000 hectare (more than 80000 acre) Welgevonden Private Game Reserve is situated in the heart of the Waterberg, and boasts beautifully unspoilt, malaria-free bushveld.
This spectacular reserve is not only home to Africa’s magnificent Big 5, but also houses a vast array of bird and animal life, including giraffe, kudu, impala, wildebeest, red hartebeest, tsessebe, gemsbok, waterbuck and bush pigs.
Welgevonden is also a sanctuary for some of Africa’s rare and unusual animal species like the brown hyena, aardwolf, aardvark and honey badger – all best spotted during evening game drives.
The diverse habitat on the reserve welcomes and provides for a wide range of animal and bird life. While the grassy plains of the reserve absolutely abound with antelope – from the largest eland to the most diminutive duiker – the cheetah, lion and leopard are also always close by.
Rolling wooded mountains cut by deep rocky ravines and majestic gorges make Welgevonden Private 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.
Mealtimes at Nedile are always an indulgence, whether taken in the elegant dining area or under the stars, around the campfire in the rock boma.
