Description

Tsheshepe Big Five Game Lodge- Welgevonden Game Reserve

Tsheshepe Big Five Game Lodge is located within the 75,000 acre Welgevonden Game Reserve, which is located about a two and a half hours drive north of Johannesburg. Tsheshepe is a private lodge offering an amazing wildlife viewing experience where you could see the endangered rhino, lion, leopard, hippo, elephant, cheetah, buffalo and the full range of smaller indigenous wildlife species such as impala, waterbuck, klipspringer, duiker, wildlebeest, warthogs etc.

Welgevonden is also a birdwatcher’s paradise and the rich array of indigenous trees and flora make for wonderful game drives with stops for sundowners in the evening or coffee in the early morning. The Welgevonden terrain is very beautiful and everywhere you look there is evidence of its rich and ancient wilderness – from the majestic and mystical rock formations to fascinating San Bushmen cave art.

The entire lodge is booked out for one group at a time for their sole use, anywhere between 4 to 10 guests. This luxury lodge is fully staffed and operated as a five star safari facility for its owners and their guests. The lodge is managed by an experienced lodge manager and his team. The lodge staff will also service your rooms, cook for you, and handle your laundry as required.

Activities at Tsheshepe Safari Lodge focus on early morning, afternoon/evening game drives throughout the Welgevonden Game Reserve in a comfortable and specially converted open Landcruiser 4x4 vehicle, conducted by our experienced and knowledgeable safari guide. Midday is siesta time to enjoy the lodge's facilities and relax around the swimming pool.



The lodge has five bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom including indoor and outdoor showers and bath. All but two of the bedrooms are free standing made from natural stone and thatch. Two of the bedrooms are connected with their own private lounge and can be used by two couples or for parents with younger children who wish to have their kids closer by. The main area comprises of a lounge, dining room, bar area, and swimming pool.

Access: You can self drive from Johannesburg to Welgevonden Game Reserve's main park entrance, where you will be met our manager. Your vehicle will be safely stored at the park entrance and from then onwards you will be travelling to the lodge and around the reserve on the lodge's specially converted open 4x4 game viewing Land Cruiser.

Professional transfers can be arranged from Johannesburg, at additional cost if preferred. For a larger group with a budget, a charter flight in and out of camps are also a possibility.

Although the Reserve has been regarded as in a malaria free area, there have recently been a few cases and suitable precautions should be taken.

Reviews

An awesome, unforgettable family retreat

We had a family gathering, and taking the whole lodge made our dreams come true. I had five grandchildren that the lodge comfortably accommodated. Yes, the animal viewing is excellent, four of the big five, a hippo out of water, a cheetah and her cubs on a fresh kill. The lodge is large and.comfy, all private en suites. Super! Here is the really awesome part. The staff is unbelievable, from Steven the guide/GM to Mpho who prepares a great selection of excellent meals to the kitchen and laundry staff. These people will give you great joy and happiness during your stay. I cannot imagine another group of people that will make you feel so welcome. They share their hearts. Enjoy a great trip and enjoy these great people. ”

Tsheshepe game lodge, South Africa

An incredible trip. Our group of 8 loved the private game lodge and the special dinners the staff arranged for us at special locations at the lodge and on the preserve. We went ballooning, elephant riding, and went locally for lunch and had a local tribal dance group perform for us in their local village.. The owner was so helpful and did everything, including opening his wine cellar, to insure we had the best time.. Fabulous! Pat Magdol ”
