About Makweti Safari Lodge

Makweti Safari Lodge is an experience for the discerning wildlife aficionado. Timelessly African, it embodies the eras of Livingstone and Hemingway, while standing as a model of modern, environmentally sensitive taste.

The Waterberg landscape surrounding Makweti is a natural home for Africa’s “Big Five”. Makweti has no fences, so the Big Five and a host of other iconic species wander freely through the Lodge’s surrounds. Often, these wild “owners of the terrain” come for refreshment to the stream-fed waterhole just 80 yards from the open lounge and viewing deck.

Beyond the waterhole, Makweti’s five luxury suites blend seductively into an ideal safari landscape, catering to no more than 10 guests. Every suite is a secluded sanctuary, architecturally designed to command panoramic views across a gorge-defined valley and ultimately enhance your experience.

Access to some suites is across a swing bridge over the Makweti gorge. Suites with plunge-pools also feature extended teak decks and thatch overhangs, which together enlarge the living-space.

Your Makweti safari experiences will be complemented by Makweti’s delectable, world-rated cuisine where we consider every meal, a gracious culinary event.

The views, and many other enchanting vistas, extend across one of Southern Africa’s largest private game reserves, Welgevonden Private Game Reserve, a wilderness expanse of some 40,000 hectares. For Makweti’s guests, the reserve stands open in its entirety to wonder-filled exploration.

Surrounded by pristine wilderness and attuned to the gentle rhythm of the earth, Makweti Safari Lodge breathes grace and elegance while allowing a glimpse of old Africa.

Rates are inclusive of accommodation, VAT, all meals, tea and coffee refreshments, two safari activities per day and return scheduled transfers from Welgevonden Game Reserve Main Gate.

We regret no children under the age of 12.

Please take note:
A compulsory conservation levy per bed night is applicable to each booking (subject to change without prior notification).

Guests are to provide an estimated time of arrival as there is scheduled transfers to and from the main lodge from the game reserve main gate.

Safari: Delightful safari experiences at Makweti are assured by an astounding diversity of wild species, including the “Big Five”; by natural densities of wildlife; and by superbly qualified guides.

Spa: The joys of a spa are not only for city slickers; inward relaxation is essential to a good safari. Africa’s wild giants do not move at our frenetic pace, so we hardly need add that we offer our guests a most soothing massage.
