The Welgevonden Private Game Reserve is the result of a pioneering project begun in 1987 to return farmland to its original natural state.

As a result thereof, it has grown to become one of South Africas premier privately held reserves. Ambitious game relocation efforts and careful ecological management have resulted in a reserve today that is home to the Lion, Leopard, Elephant, White Rhino, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, 15 different types of buck, and 30 other species of mammal.

Other activities include picnics and bush breakfasts on the banks of the Sterkstroom River, nearby elephant back safaris, quad biking and horse riding
