Mhondoro Game Lodge
Waterberg Area

Mhondoro Game Lodge is an idyllic private game lodge in Welgevonden Game Reserve, a malaria-free reserve in Limpopo. Ideally located from Johannesburg, this is a place to see the ‘Big 5’ (African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, lion and rhino) in their natural habitat. The lodges are supremely comfortable and stylishly decorated with roaring fireplaces and decks – filled with personal touches such as hot water bottles, candle-lit baths and attentive service. Other lodge facilities include a gym and heated swimming pools for all year-round splashing as well as a dedicated massage suite complete with a private, outdoor spa deck and bath, where a variety of massage treatments are offered, along with manicures and pedicures.

The main lodge provides access to a tunnel that leads you to an intimate view of the underground waterhole hide. At ground level, the hide provides the memorable opportunity to get up close to elephants and other wildlife drinking and bathing. The roles are also reversed as elephants amiably amble past guests swimming in the pool – a delight of safari life. There are two game drives in open vehicles or walking safaris with a guide each day  The villa offers an exclusive experience – housing six people and replete with butler, chef and private gym.

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.
Henry Miller

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
