ABOUT NEDILE LODGE
For travelers seeking a genuine Out-of-Africa -style getaway, which enables them to experience the magnificence of the Big 5, while unwinding within the peaceful comforts of a luxury private game reserve, Nedile Lodge is the right place to be.
At Nedile one is not only assured of superb accommodation and service, but also the finest natural splendors that Mother Nature herself has to offer. This beautiful bushveld environment is home to some of Africa’s most sought after, mysterious and elusive species of game, including one of the largest collections of white rhino to be kept on private land. The reserve also houses the remaining four animals that make up Africa’s Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo.
ABOUT THE WELGEVONDEN GAME RESERVE
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. The area will soon expand to approximately 100,000 hectares as the Welgevonden Game Reserve merges with the Marakele National Park.
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.
