BIG 5

Welgevonden Game Reserve is home to Africa’s world-famous Big 5: lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino. Our rangers are experts in tracking these magnificent creatures during early morning or late afternoon game drives. The 35 000-ha Welgevonden Game Reserve contains the world’s biggest concentration, on private land, of the highly endangered white rhino. The Reserve’s renowned anti-poaching unit has ensured that not one of these gargantuan grazers has ever been lost to poaching – an incredible feat on a continent where the practice is endemic.

RANGERS DIARY
SILENT HUNTER (THE LEOPARD)
The day started as usual with a beautiful golden summer sunrise coupled with cooling morning breeze. I prepared my hotbox and cooler box as I was getting ready for a gate pickup.
THE WATERHOLE HIDE
Mhondoro is known for many unique elements and quality experiences. But for close quarter game viewing none are so impressive than the underground game viewing hide!
