It was my first visit to Welgevonden Game Reserve and I was wowed by its beauty. The road between the N1 highway and the reserve is in good condition. The last 15...

Our ranger, Barend, was very...

We recently spent three nights at Nedile lodge in the stunning Welgevonden Game Reserve and loved every moment of it. The lodge is perched high up on a cliff and each of the stylish and spacious suites has its own private balcony with a beautiful view out over the room. The staff were friendly and obliging, and no request was...

I cannot imagine a better way to experience a safari in South Africa. Nedile's staff, rooms and amenities are truly five-star. The game rangers are world-class experts with a true love and deep respect for the bush and the animals who call the reserve home.
