Makweti Safari Lodge is nestled within Welgevonden Game Reserve, a malaria-free wilderness of some 40,000-hectares.  Welgevonden ranks among Southern Africa’s largest and most pristine private game reserves.

Welgevonden forms part of the greater, UNESCO-declared Waterberg Biosphere Reserve.  This biosphere is characterised by high-plateau geology, magnificent cloudscapes, crystalline streams and an immense diversity of wild species.  (While perfect for indigenous plants and animals, the Waterberg’s soils are largely unsuitable for farming or forestry – hence the region has remained unspoiled across the centuries.)

Makweti is perfectly placed for exploration of the entire Welgevonden Game Reserve. While guests are not permitted to drive their own vehicles within the Reserve, our expertly guided, open-vehicle safaris can take you on any variety of interesting routes.

The maps below are provided for your interest.
