Accommodation in Welgevonden Private Game Reserve

Star Rating:4

Nestled in the unspoilt wilderness of the Waterberg is Shibula Lodge and Bush Spa offering a luxurious taste of wild Africa, combined with the sophisticated pampering of a health spa.
This malaria-free game reserve, where the Big Five roam freely, is home to an extraordinary diversity of plants and animal life, as well as more than 350 bird species. The superbly decorated main lodge boasts a library – well stocked with information on wildlife, birds and plants – and an elegant lounge and dining area, complete with a baby grand piano. A sprawling deck with magnificent views, leads one to a communal swimming pool, perfect for sundowners as the sun bows to the majestic moon.

The well-being of guests is paramount at Shibula. A well stocked, specially designed wine cellar complements the healthy, distinctly African-inspired cuisine and discreet, personalised service allows guests to enjoy an individually tailored balance of superb safari experiences and relaxing spa activities. Pre-breakfast or mid-morning game drives or a bush walk with our qualified rangers and trackers for the adventures, evening game drives with sundowners, and cosy boma dinners all contribute to the magic of Shibula.
