The rich and varied Waterberg region offers a diverse variety of unspoiled habitats. More than 50 mammals, 300 bird species and 2,000 plant species can be found within these habitats.
The savannah areas of the Waterberg consist of rolling grasslands and a semi-deciduous forest. The mammal population in Welgevonden Game Reserve, situated within the Waterberg region, boasts all of Africa’s renowned Big 5, as well as cheetah, giraffe, crocodile, hippo, brown hyena, honey badger and a whole lot more. Welgevonden Game Reserve also contains the world’s biggest concentration of the highly endangered white rhino on private land. The Reserve’s renowned anti-poaching unit has ensured that not one of these gargantuan grazers have ever been lost to poaching which is an incredible feat on a continent where the practice is endemic.
The wildlife and wilderness habitats make Mhondoro Safari Lodge & Villa perfect for safari game drives. Our private rangers are professional and knowledgeable and can tell you everything about the flora and fauna of the African bush. Their love of the wilderness is contagious and their anecdotes are plentiful, informative and thoroughly riveting.
