About

Wild Ivory Big 5 Game Lodge is situated in Welgevonden Game Reserve in the malaria-free Limpopo Province, South Africa. This exclusive tented bush lodge is located in one of the ‘sweeter’ bushveld areas of the well-established Big 5 Game Reserve, right in the heart of the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere Reserve. The pristine Waterberg biosphere is one of South Africa’s least populated areas and one of the best wildlife areas in Southern Africa. Apart from seeing the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo), guests at Welgevonden can also enjoy over 50 species of mammal and more than 300 bird species. The reserve is also well known for its rhinoceros and cheetah sightings. Wild Ivory is one of the few lodges in South Africa which is eco-friendly and has a low impact on the environment. Guests are accommodated in luxury tents with stunning views and spacious, well-appointed bathrooms.

Growing up with the Kruger, I've always enjoyed true Bushveld experiences,and can say without any doubt this has been one of our best holidays in Africa. The reserve itself is fantastic, diverse landscapes and great variety of animals. Although we didn't see lions, we saw alot of other amazing animals. The lodge itself also has a great variety of animals around, klipspringers, vlakvarke, zebras and lots of elephants! The lodge's location could not have been better, it is completely remote with A STUNNING view, not a single light or road as far as the eye can see. We did not get a bonfire, but we were the only guests so I understand that. The rooms itself, is basic and unfenced, which is actually great, that is exactly what you want in the bush, the animals move around the

We stayed at Wild Ivory in June 2019 and had a wonderful time there. The tented rooms were clean and offered everything you need. The food was delicious and the staff were extremely friendly! Our game drives with Herbert were fantastic! We would like to thank the entire team for making our stay so great! We wish we could have stayed longer!

We had an AMAZING time in Welgevonden, especially in the Wild Ivory Eco lodge. Our self-catering lodge was fantastic, spacious, outside shower, best views and very quite (only the sound of animals :)) and the game drives with Herbert were actually the best we’ve ever had - he has a lot of knowledge and he is always trying to find the rare species (very successful)!! The service and the friendliness of everyone was great. We will definitely recommend it!
