Shidzidzi and Nungubane Private Game Lodges are a mere three hours from Johannesburg in the sprawling wilderness of the Welgevonden Private Game Reserve, situated in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.
Malaria Free and in the heart of the spectacular Waterberg (Water Mountains), Shidzidzi and Nungubane are surrounded by 35000 hectare of raw African bush that is home to the African Big Five – rhino, lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo – as well as 16 species of antelope and over 250 species of bird.
Exciting encounters with Africa’s wildlife are assured during your stay at these luxury private game lodges, where world class luxury accommodation, superb cuisine and exceptional hospitality and service are our commitment to you.
The Welgevonden sister lodges of Shidzidzi and Nungubane are a mere 5 minutes apart by Land Rover. Each of the luxurious thatched chalets has its own private game viewing deck with majestic views over the sprawling reserve where guests can view the splendour of an African sunrise to the sounds of the wakening African bush.
The two camps each have 5 luxury chalets, and can accommodate a combined total of 20 guests, ensuring both personal and exceptional service.
Bathrooms are en-suite and each chalet has the additional feature of an open-air shower to add to the thrill of your experience in the African bush. For your convenience all chalets are fitted with ceiling fans, and have tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryers and bathroom amenities.
Every creature comfort imaginable is on hand at Shidzidzi and Nungubane Private Game Lodges.
The main lodge at each of the camps house general facilities including reception, a lounge with a huge deck, a dining room and a bar, and a curio shop where various African goods are available. During the day laze in the sun at either of the lodge swimming pools, relax in the cool comfort of the lodge lounge, or spend some time watching the ever-present game wandering to and from the lodge waterholes.
Dining at Shidzidzi and Nungubane is an awesome experience, as most meals are served in the two lodges’ outdoor Bomas, where guests can enjoy their dinner ‘under the stars’.
Both Shidzidzi and Nungubane offer two game drives per day to guests. Drives are in open-sided Land Rover vehicles specially adapted for game viewing, and experienced game rangers accompany all drives to share their knowledge of the plant, animal, insect and bird life with guests.
For the more energetic and for those wishing to get closer to nature, walk safaris can be arranged on request. A game ranger accompanies guests on the walk. And for a totally different experience helicopter flights can be arranged.
