Safari Lodge and Villa
Mhondoro Safari Lodge & Villa is a luxurious, five-star private safari lodge and villa situated within the malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg District of the Limpopo Province in South Africa.

Named after the Dutch owners of Mhondoro, Myriam and Frank Vogel, the MF Foundation is based in the Netherlands. It sets out to contribute to a better world with initiatives ranging from giving aid to people who are mentally and/or physically challenged, to financial support to the WWF (World Wildlife Fund). Its goal is to offer help where it is needed, be it the natural environment or an individual. During the Covid-19 crisis in South Africa the MF Foundation is providing financial support, food and basic essentials to the families of Mhondoro staff members who have lost income due to salary cuts. The MF Foundation also provides assistance to local community members in need who have been retrenched due to the pandemic. Follow the MF Foundation here on social media and donate here should you wish to contribute to this non-profit organisation. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Suites & Villa
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 35,000 hectare reserve contains the world’s largest 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.
