About Welgevonden

"Serendipitous Discovery"

Welgevonden is a relatively young reserve, established in 1995, made up of what used to be farmlands. 

It believes it has the opportunity and responsibility to make a significant contribution to protecting the country’s biodiversity.  The conservation team, guided by the Welgevonden Scientific Steering Committee, are committed to research and the development of innovative, leading-edge technologies.  Much pioneering has been achieved in the challenges of managing elephant populations, rhino security and the management of meta populations of predators, specifically lion and cheetah.

Having been on the reserve since January 2000, your guide has a wealth of knowledge and is able to offer an enhanced and insightful safari, unique to Izingwe Lodge.
