Winter is safari season and with a range of special offers in the market, it is an excellent time to spoil yourself with a Big 5 Safari bucket list trip.
Located in the beautiful Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg (Limpopo province), Mhondoro Safari Lodge & Villa has introduced a Pay 3 Stay 4 offer that offers a free night for every three nights booked at the award-winning lodge. Valid between May and July, the special offer is subject to availability. Discounted rates start at R5675 per person sharing per night in a Deluxe room, inclusive of twice daily safari activities, all meals and soft drinks, as well as local beers and select house wines.
Privately owned, malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve stretches across 35 000 hectares and is a mere 2h45-minute drive or a 50-minute flight from Johannesburg. Guests can expect varied terrain and a diverse natural habitat featuring the ‘Big 5’, including a large white rhino population. Guided walks with the endangered white rhino are very popular with guests, as is watching the ‘resident’ herd of elephants who visit the lodge waterhole almost daily. Mhondoro is the ultimate big sky destination, with stunning unimpeded sunrises and sunsets over the Waterberg mountains and valleys. The wildlife experience is complemented by luxurious accommodation, indulgent spa treatments, passionate service and fine cuisine. Mhondoro distinguishes itself from other safari lodges with its style and quality of fresh and light, home-grown and beautifully plated food, presented in an exciting, modern African style.
Dutch-owned, the luxurious 5-star safari lodge is a fusion of African chic and edgy European influences. Unique features include a waterhole with underground hide that is connected with the main lodge by a tunnel; as well as a star deck, private gym and a heated swimming pool.
Mhondoro is child-friendly and welcomes children of all ages. Family rooms accommodate two adults and two children. Little travellers may run free in the safe open-air play area, which is protected by an elephant fence. Indoors a play room is stocked with games where children can enjoy themselves without disturbing other guests, while special children’s activities and special child-friendly game drives can also be arranged.
