What an amazing start to our honeymoon. Leon, Arina and all the staff were superb. So friendly and enthusiastic about everything.....game drives, food, wine and passing on some invaluable local knowledge! Saw plenty of game inc lions just having made a kill, elephants playing in the river and rhinos blocking the road until they wanted to move. Such a fantastic experience.
We even had a surprise candelit dinner served to us in our lodge and a wonderful bubble bath awaiting with bubbly & chocs, rose petals and more candles. What a lovely treat! Thanks Leon & Arina....we loved it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Mhondoro Lodge. Let us surprise you with our unique and characteristic lodge, set in the breathtakingly beautiful province of Limpopo. Limpopo has several attractive reserves but Mhondoro Lodge is situated in its best-kept secret: Welgevonden. Welgevonden Private Game Reserve stretches across 37,000 hectares of unspoiled nature – or bush as the locals say. The landscape is magnificent and varied, ranging from massive outcrops of rock where leopards lurk to vast savannah plains, the grazing pasture of herds of zebras, wildebeests and impalas. The reserve is entirely malaria-free and is crossed by the three main provincial rivers, which wind their way through gentle forest landscape until they join the mighty Limpopo river. Welgevonden, founded in 1993, is part of Waterberg (United Waterberg Biosphere) and is one of the biggest private investments in the conservation of our world heritage. Welgevonden is easy to reach. All it takes is a 2 1/2-hour car trip or a one-hour flight from Johannesburg. A sense of peace and tranquility enfolds you the moment you set foot in Mhondoro. Welgevonden Private Game Reserve is a true paradise and a welcome escape from the hassle of everyday life. Mhondoro’s hosts and hostesses are ready to welcome you in our pleasant and comfortable lodge. Our rates are all-inclusive and assure you of five-star quality. We hope to meet you soon for an unforgettable stay. ... more less
