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 Safari Lodge & Villa. 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.
