Standing sentinel over the savanna, at the foot of a rocky ridge in the centre of Welgevonden Game Reserve, Ekuthuleni Lodge offers guests a classic safari experience. This elegant property has five standalone suites complemented by generous indoor and outdoor living spaces and expansive views of a bustling waterhole – ideal for couples as well as groups of family and friends.
Translated as “Place of Peace”, Ekuthuleni Lodge is a soothing and idyllic home-away-from-home; an African bush escape that offers guests contemporary comfort and quiet serenity.
With traditional thatched roofs and beautiful stone work, these spacious units feature king-sized beds, an en-suite bathroom with indoor/outdoor shower and a large bathtub, and private outdoor terrace overlooking the plain.
This thoughtfully-appointed family suite features a king-sized bed with en-suite bathroom as well as twin beds on the mezzanine level that can accommodates up to two children, aged 6 and up.
Pride and attention to detail are an important part of creating a warm, welcoming environment for our guests. Every moment is considered, from how your bed is made every morning and the way you like your coffee, to the board games in the lounge and the team waving you off at departure – small details that make you feel not just at home, but like you're with family.
With a maximum of 10 guests in house at any given time, a stay at Ekuthuleni Lodge always feels comfortable and intimate – like a holiday with family.
Welgevonden Game Reserve is set in the shadow of the ancient Waterberg mountains, just three hours from Johannesburg, and is home to more than 65 mammal species, including the Big 5. Its status as malaria-free destination and its easy accessibility from Johannesburg make it the perfect location for an escape from the city surrounded by the beauty and tranquillity of a pristine wilderness.
