Tshwene Lodge Highlights

Surrounded by magnificent rock outcrops, Tshwene Lodge is a secluded oasis in the rugged valley of the Taaibos River. The Chacma baboon, after which the lodge is named, calls late at night to alert of pending danger. Rich in bird life, Tshwene offers peace and tranquillity for those seeking to get away from it all. The five strategically located suites all offer exhilarating views of the valleys below and the hills beyond.

Tshwene Lodge Game Viewing and Activities

Welgevonden Private Game Reserve boasts prolific birdlife and the reserve has become a sanctuary for many rare animals offering incredible game viewing. Game drives are conducted in open 4x4 vehicles. The 460km of roads traverse the entire reserve and ensure minimal contact with other reserve visitors whilst on game drives. Following one of the largest game relocation programmes ever undertaken on private land, Welgevonden once again became home to the Big Five: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. This reserve has many species of antelope; including, zebra, giraffe, baboon, hyena and wild dog. Perennial waters hide crocodile and offer sustenance to a huge variety of birds. Take a game drive at dawn or dusk, and experience the excitement of the Big Five and so much more, up close. Night game drives are a highlight and gourmet dinners are served in the traditional boma for unique African flare.
