BIG 5

Welgevonden Game Reserve is home to over fifty animal species, including Africa’s world-famous Big 5: African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard and rhinoceros. Our rangers are experts in tracking these magnificent creatures during the early morning or late afternoon game drives.

The Big 5 can also be found at the waterhole right in front of the Mhondoro Game Lodge. For the perfect photo opportunity, walk through the 65 metre tunnel to the underground waterhole hide and experience a personal, yet safe encounter with the wildlife drinking or bathing at the waterhole.

“Amazing stay in paradise”
Don’t hesitate and book Mhondoro, they serve great food, have beautifull accomodations and the wildlife and reserve are stunning. It is worth every penny. During the included game drives we found lots of animals and beautifull nature. Sylvester, who was oud Ranger for the days, is an absolute legend. All animals were beautifull, and for die-hards, we have seen all of the big five here.
