Mhondoro Game Lodge, located in SA’s Limpopo province, is a luxurious new five-star safari lodge in the breath-taking ‘Big-Five’ Welgevonden Game Reserve, less than a three-hour drive from Johannesburg, in a malaria-free area. Dutch-owned and managed, Mhondoro is a fusion of African chic and edgy European influences, the confluence of a spectacular natural setting with luxury accommodation, fine cuisine and passionate hospitality and service that have created this oasis in the African wilderness.
Sleeping only 20 guests across various suites, Mhondoro Game Lodge is as exclusive as it is secluded, with the six-person villa the jewel in the lodge’s crown. Perfect for families or friends travelling together, it features a magnificent master suite and two additional bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, as well as a private gym, yoga room and a heated swimming pool. Exclusive use includes all meals, teas and coffees, soft drinks, local branded beers and hand-selected house wines, as well as a game-viewing safari vehicle with personal ranger and the services of a personal chef, butler and housekeeping staff.
Marvel at the heavens on Mhondoro’s custom-built stargazing ‘star deck’ – you’ll soon see why Mhondoro is considered the ultimate ‘big sky’ destination – or get a more up close and personal experience with the others stars of the show at the waterhole’s underground game-viewing hide – a must-see for passionate wildlife photographers. Guided walks with trained game rangers are also offered by special arrangement, providing an excellent chance of spotting the ‘Big Five’ in their awe-inspiring natural habitat, including a large white rhino population.
And for when you just want to relax in comfort, you really can make it all about you: other lodge facilities include a gym and heated swimming pools; and a dedicated massage suite where you can unwind with a massage, manicure or pedicure in a state of complete bliss.
Those seeking a retreat from the rat race may find the very piece of paradise they’ve been searching for tucked away in the Limpopo province. For more visit www.mhondoro.com.
