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 tents, you have a great view and the tents are incredibly clean. Great king size beds.

To be honest, I cannot believe this lodge isn't always fully booked. I saw people complaining about the elephants and so on, so if you want something more fancy then this is probably not for you. But if you want a true Bushveld experience, then this is the lodge for you.

Some pointers, the staff at the lodge is exceptional, never been to a lodge where I can see the staff really go the extra mile and have a love for nature. Whether the all inclusive is worth the extra money is debateble, but that's perhaps because we are locals. Also, it is an eco lodge, so no fans, but the tents are extremely well designed for proper airflow.

Wild ivory eco lodge, you will definitely see us again, soon.

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!

Room tip: By choosing the self catering lodge you save money and you have a private lodge and terrace
