Escape To Nature: Makweti Safari LodgeMakweti Safari Lodge, situated on almost 40,000 square hectare of The Welgevonden Game Reserve—offers its guests intimacy in the heart of the African bush. The lodge epitomizes seclusion, located in the magnificent Waterberg Mountains. However, it is also entirely easily accessible, about a two hour drive from Johannesburg, South Africa’s capital caters to direct flights worldwide.
Going to Makweti means escaping.
After all, with a capacity of only ten patrons, it would be hard to avoid that sense of escape surrounded by the lush and verdant surroundings of South Africa’s natural beauty. The hotel’s policy is dedicated to preserving this pristinely by employing sustainable practices and promoting community development. There are no fences on the property, which truly gives guests the feeling they are immersed in nature, instead of simply spectators. Home to Africa’s “Big Five”-- elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo, lion and leopard, one of the two multi-hour safaris each day will surely allow for intimate wildlife viewing opportunities. The ranger guides that Makweti hires are all coming to the lodge with years of guiding experience.
There is yet to be one thread out of place at Makweti Safari Lodge-- there are five luxury safari units, which offer a view of the most stunning of African nature, which would provide perfect opportunity for guests to spot gaming possibilities from the intimacy of their own showers or porches. The suites boast spacious, airy interiors with a warm, contemporary decor that aims to incorporate elements of the pristine greenery outside into the dwelling space. Each room is complete with a private deck and air-conditioning units. The pool suites are optimal for enjoying a secluded, romantic evening under the stars.
Truly there are no boundaries at this lodge—allowing guests the opportunity to be immersed in nature and living in harmony with the African bush is the commitment Makweti provides.
