WELGEVONDEN GR

Welgevonden Overview

Welgevonden Game Reserve offers a captivating and unspoiled haven for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers alike, providing a unique opportunity to witness the splendor of the African wilderness up close. Spanning over 37,000 acres of pristine landscapes, the reserve boasts a remarkable commitment to conservation.

The reserve comprises mountainous terrain that is dissected by deep valleys, while flat plateaus characterize most hilltops. Altitude varies from 1,080 m in the north to ±1800 m in the southern section of the reserve. With a size of 98,000 acres in mountain bushveld surrounding rivers, this private reserve has never been used for game hunting, so the wildlife is more relaxed and approachable.

The Reserve was founded in 1987 and constitutes farmland that has been reclaimed for wildlife conservation, and it has extensively been restocked with numerous species, including the Big Five: lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and cheetah. It is home to over 50 different mammals and various antelope species, with a diverse birdlife to be found in the rolling bushveld terrain. It has one of the largest populations of white rhino on any private reserve in Africa!

The diversity of habitat leads to a wide range of wildlife, with grassy plains abounding with antelope, from the largest eland to the diminutive duiker, all of which attract large predators such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs, which are regularly seen close by. There are also numerous rare and unusual species, such as brown hyena, aardwolf, pangolin, and aardvark, all best seen at night. Over 300 bird species can be seen on the reserve, including rare blue cranes, which breed in the southern section early in the year.

Visiting guests will enjoy unlimited traversing through the reserve and experience an environment where biodiversity conservation and game viewing are managed in harmony. Welgevonden protects a unique and special environment, and the reserve’s management is deeply committed to ongoing conservation, research, and development.

Encounter the iconic Big Five and immerse yourself in a sanctuary where diverse flora and fauna thrive harmoniously. Thrilling twice-daily game drives, relaxing evenings, and luxury accommodation

Activity: Safari days!

Each day on safari in Africa is a magical experience, whether you’re exploring the savanna on foot or in a 4x4 vehicle in search of the Big 5 or taking to the sky in a hot-air balloon to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration. Every single day is steeped in the promise of a unique adventure and cherished memories.

Although each day is unpredictable to a certain extent, based on the time of year or location, there is a general format or schedule that safaris tend to follow, but, as a rule, safaris do follow a familiar rhythm that combines thrilling game viewing with ample time to relax in between—a dream vacation in anyone’s book. One rule of thumb is that there are usually two game drives a day: one in the early morning and one in the late afternoon, when animals are at their most active.

VICTORIA FALLS

Explore

📍 Old Drift Lodge

 VICTORIA FALLS

Victoria Falls is the 7th wonder of the world! Located in Zimbabwe, situated in the heart of Southern Africa and entirely landlocked. 12% of its land is allocated to National Parks and Game Reserves.

Undoubtedly, the country's most iconic attraction is the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world, locally known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, or the "Smoke That Thunders" because of the spray made by the mass of water dropping 100 meters below in the gorges. Victoria Falls is twice the size of Niagara Falls and stretches across a significantly longer distance. Visitors can get up close to the falls, but be prepared to experience some splashing.

The Victoria Falls, now in it's 150 millionth fantastic year, - its zenith in about May each year. It’s a truly awe-inspiring experience—the sight, the sound, the smell—and the humbling feeling that this is indeed nature's supreme masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict reality. And nothing prepares you for your first sight. .

The Victoria Falls present a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe—the largest sheet of falling water in the world and significant worldwide for its exceptional geological and geomorphological features and active land formation processes with outstanding beauty attributed to the falls, i.e., the spray, mist, and rainbows.

David Livingstone was the first European to see the Victoria Falls in 1855. The Scottish explorer is believed to have been the first European to view the falls, and he named them Victoria Falls in honor of Queen Victoria.

While in Victoria Falls, don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a delightful cruise on the Zambezi River for a different perspective of the falls, especially during sunset. You can also opt for a thrilling helicopter ride over the falls. For a unique experience, consider having afternoon tea at the classic Victoria Falls Hotel. Additionally, if you're interested in shopping, Victoria Falls is an excellent place to purchase local souvenirs, artwork, and handcrafted carvings.

OLD DRIFT LODGE

Lodge Overview

Lying just 4 miles from the rumble of the mighty Victoria Falls, this extraordinary luxury tented lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River is a bush paradise that exudes an old world charm, admits modern luxuries

Upstream of the iconic Victoria Falls in the Zambezi National Park lies a pristine piece of land on the banks of the Zambezi River. Nestled within this wild paradise is Old Drift Lodge, a place frequented by elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, Lion and many other animals. The untouched natural beauty of the park is sprawled over 56 000 breath taking hectares.

The Lodge speaks to the rich heritage of the area. A ‘drift or ‘ford’, is a shallow place in a river or stream where it is possible to cross safely without using a boat. Around 1898, the lodge location (originally known as Sekute's Drift) was used as a crossing point over the Zambezi River between what was then Southern and Northern Rhodesia (today Zimbabwe and Zambia). The drift was at a point on the river, 3 miles above the Falls, where the river is wide but runs low enough during certain periods for safe crossing.

The Lodge offers luxury accommodation, with each air-conditioned suite decorated with stylish furnishings, fitting of the bygone eras, which blend in seamlessly with the natural environment. The spacious canvas en-suite rooms all have a private lounge, indoor and outdoor showers, plunge pool and an outdoor bath overlooking the Zambezi.The main lodge area will have 360 degree views, north facing onto the Zambezi & south facing onto a water hole.

ACTIVITIES
The activities offered at the lodge emphasize the rich natural environment, focusing on the abundance of wildlife that roam through the Park and swim the Zambezi River. The Zambezi National park can be explored by road, river or on foot, satisfying guests needs to experience every aspect of this natural utopia.Due to its close proximity to Victoria Falls, you have ample opportunity to enjoy a vast array of activities – from the adrenaline fuelled bunji jumping, canyon swinging and white water rafting to the more sedate historical tours, river cruises and much more.

*A warm welcome awaits on arrival at the airport! Please be on the lookout for your driver with your name sign. Baggage assistance followed by a  20 mins. road transfer to your accommodation.

This afternoon, get a view from above!  Take to the sky for a thrilling 15 minute helicopter flip over the breath-taking Victoria Falls and surrounding area.
