Welgevonden Game Reserve
First post lockdown trip! I won’t lie the thought of leaving the house after spending more than 6 months indoors was everything. At the same time, I really wasn’t ready for a full on trip airports and all so we opted for a road trip. Welgevonden Game Reserve is located in Limpopo and is a short 2 ½ hour drive from Pretoria. We stayed at Mhondoro Lodge which was spectacular the staff were amazing and ensured that we stayed safe both from the wildlife and COVID -19. The food was amazing we ate way too much, safari sundowners with macaroons were definitely my fav!
Not your average game drive snacks!
We had an awesome guide that was excellent at tracking, we got to see most of the big 5. The reserve has a high population of white rhinos and we got glimpses of them on every drive we took. Although we unfortunately did not get to see any leopards this time round so we will definitely be going back. Watch our trip highlights on our Instagram page.
