Magnificently rebuilt with a unique underground waterhole hide, romantic Star Bed (coming soon), spa and exclusive private Villa, Suites and Chalets. Mhondoro, meaning ‘spirit of the lion’ in local Shona, is a luxurious safari experience in the malaria-free, Big Five wilderness of Welgevonden Game Reserve. Presiding over a waterhole and rich plains beyond, the family-friendly lodge combines exclusivity, privacy and space with African chic and contemporary design.
The unique underground waterhole hide offers thrilling eye-to-eye game viewing amongst wildlife at the waters edge, connected by a 65m tunnel to the lodge. Adventurous romantics can soon enjoy an unforgettable night beneath African skies on the secluded, elevated Star Bed. Equally romantic is the private Honeymoon Chalet, with plunge pool and day bed on the deck, al fresco shower and a fireplace. Families and small groups will enjoy the Family or Executive Suite, or indulge in the ultimate exclusivity of the Villa, with its own private pool, gym, yoga room, personal ranger and vehicle, private chef and butler.
Rangers share the wonders of the wilderness on game drives and bush walks through the savannah and diverse habitats of this Waterberg region. In between safaris, game viewing and bird watching, there is a range of pursuits to indulge in – a bracing workout in the gym, massages and treatments in the spa, heated swimming pool and sauna, and fabulous food. Mhondoro prides itself on satisfying foodies of all ages with modern African cuisine, home-made and home-grown. Less than 3 hours drive from Johannesburg or 1 hour flight by private charter.
All ages welcome | Complimentary Wi-Fi hotspot
