Makweti Safari Lodge
Welgevonden Private Reserve, Limpopo
Makweti Safari Lodge in the Welgevonden private reserve in the Limpopo province is a 5-star experience for the discerning wildlife aficionado. Timelessly African, it embodies the eras of Livingstone and Hemingway, while modern and environmentally sensitive.
Only 5 suites at Makweti Safari Lodge
The Lodge caters to no more than 10 guests, with five luxury suites that blend seductively into an ideal safari landscape. To maintain its exclusivity, Makweti Safari Lodge offers just five suites. All are luxurious, and all are designed with great architectural care to create a restful balance between the light and shade that dapple the Welgevonden bushveld environment.
This landscape is a natural home for Africa’s “Big Five” – elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo, lion and leopard. Makweti has no fences, so the Big Five, zebra, wildebeest, and a host of other iconic species wander freely through the Lodge’s surrounds. Often, they come for refreshment to the stream-fed waterhole just 80 yards from the open lounge and viewing deck.
Beyond the waterhole, Makweti’s luxury suites and dining room command panoramic views of the Welgevonden private reserve, across a gorge-defined valley, toward infinite blue hills beyond.
These views and many other enchanting vistas extend across one of Southern Africa’s largest private game reserves – a wilderness expanse of some 40,000 hectares. For Makweti Safari lodge’s guests, the Welgevonden reserve stands open in its entirety to wonderfilled exploration.
Makweti Safari lodge’s location in the Welgevonden private reserve is moreover malaria-free, with a temperate and invigorating climate.
Your Makweti safari experiences will be complemented by the discreet elegance of your luxury suite, and by Makweti’s delectable, world-rated cuisine.
Makweti Safari Lodge was founded in 1995, and its management and staff embody decades of experience in creating memorable stays for a discerning international clientele.
