Welcome to Wild Ivory Big 5 Game Lodge in Welgevonden South Africa
Wild Ivory Big 5 Game Lodge is situated in Welgevonden Game Reserve in Limpopo Province, South Africa. This exclusive bush lodge is located in one of the ‘sweeter’ bushveld areas of the well-established Big 5 Game Reserve which is in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve. Wild Ivory is the ideal destination for your wildlife and photographic safari.
The Waterberg area is one of South Africa’s least populated areas and one of the best wildlife areas in Southern Africa. In addition to the Big 5 species (lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo), visitors to the lodge can enjoy numerous other animal and bird species. The reserve is also known for its rhinoceros and cheetah sightings.
Wild Ivory Eco Lodge is situated in the Western section of Welgevonden Game Reserve where there is an abundance of plains game which in turn attracts a number of predatory species from Lion to Jackal. This Big 5 Game Lodge is elevated and overlooks a wooded plain and a private waterhole. The raised position allows for beautiful and uninterrupted views of the reserve, up to the Waterberg escarpment.
Wild Ivory is one of the few lodges in South Africa which is eco friendly and low impact. The main lodge has a large raised deck with a swimming pool, sunken boma and elevated views of the waterhole and wooden plains below. Accommodation is in luxury tents with lovely views and very well appointed bathrooms. Large double beds and outside loungers allow you complete comfort and relaxation in a true wilderness setting.
During their stay at Wild Ivory Eco Lodge, guests are treated to excellent traditional meals which are prepared by our very talented chef. Meals are served at the main lodge where guests can keep an eye on the waterhole or the stars whilst enjoying their food. Self-catering packages are also available.
Rates: Rates include two game drives daily in open game viewers with one of our rangers in the Big 5 reserve. Transfers to the lodge, three meals, teas and coffees, drinking water are all included in the rates.
Wild Ivory Eco Lodge’s Eco-Footprint
Wild Ivory Eco Lodge was built using eco-friendly, ‘green’ products and runs off solar power. The lodge blends into the surrounds and has a low impact on the environment. All paints and consumables used for the construction and running of the lodge are eco-friendly and no hard woods were used. Even the sewerage system is eco-friendly. Efforts have been made to give the lodge a low carbon footprint by making use of solar power which is a renewable energy source and a nearby borehole for water.
