Destination

Indian Ocean / Africa

Welgevonden Private Game Reserve - Madikwe Game Reserve - Pretoria - Mauritius

To get the most out of your vacation weeks, we recommend that your trip takes place between the months of July and October. But the best time to travel also depends on your preferences. The best time to travel to Johannesburg and the surrounding area is during the dry season. During the months from May to September, temperatures are warm and pleasant. Bring weather-appropriate clothing for cold nights.

Trips during the rainy season, from October to April, are also possible and popular. At night you will find the weather pleasantly mild and during the day, rain brings high temperatures down - and makes the landscape even greener.

The best time to travel to Mauritius is just before or just after the main rainy season. The best conditions for a vacation on the north coast of the island are between May and October due to pleasant temperatures, fewer rainy days, and minimal humidity compared to the other months. Maximum temperatures range from 25 to 30 degrees celsius during the day, although it can cool down to a pleasant 17 and 21 degrees at night. Cyclones visit the island from time to time, between January and April.

Welcome to South Africa! You will land at Johannesburg International Airport and be greeted by a member of our partner agency's staff in the arrivals hall. After you receiving your travel documents, you will go together to the rental car station to pick up your rental car. Here, the representative of our partner agency will be happy to assist you with the rental car pick-up. Now you are well equipped and can start your unforgettable adventure with the little tips that the representative has given you on the way. Unique animal observations and untouched landscapes await you!

After about three hours, you will reach your destination for today: the luxurious Nedile Lodge in the 38,000 hectare Welgevonden Private Game Reserve. Situated in the heart of the malaria-free Waterberg area, the reserve, as the name "Welgevonden" ( meaning "well found") suggests, does not overpromise: untouched landscapes and a rich wildlife with cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, wild dogs, brown antelopes, and a great variety of birds characterize this wonderful area. Be excited and look forward to seeing all the representatives of the Big Five that call Welgevonden Private Game Reserve home: Lions, leopards, rhinos, buffalos, and elephants can be seen up close and personal here in their natural environment during exciting safari tours. Take great photos on exciting game drives and participate in thrilling bush walks! Get up close to Africa's wild animals and feel a slight adrenaline rush when you hear a soft snort from the animals hidden in the tall grass.

Far away from the stress of everyday life, you can enjoy your own personal safari experience at Nedile Lodge amidst dreamlike landscapes. Equipped with every luxury and comfort, elegantly furnished chalets with a great view over the vastness of the African country await you. One thing is for sure: This is the place to be!

After about four hours, you will reach South Africa's best-kept secret, the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve. The rather unknown park covers an area of 75,000 hectares and is a real insider tip: varied landscapes, such as the dry Kalahari and the lush bushveld, a rich wildlife with over 300 bird species as well as the Big Five are united here in one huge area. Are you in the mood for more exciting safari tours? You and your experienced ranger will go on thrilling game drives and can marvel at Africa's rich wildlife up close - this is a particularly memorable opportunity for children to experience animals in the wild. Keep your camera handy at all times, as the endangered wild dogs and cheetahs have also made their home in Madikwe Game Reserve.

2 nights, full board accommodation at Rhulani Safari Lodge***** (breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, tea) and activities at Luxury Chalet, Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa

After a fortifying breakfast at your luxury lodge, you will leave the African bushveld and drive to Pretoria, about four hours away. Here you will spend two nights at the luxurious Court Classique Boutique Hotel. Pretoria, or Tshwane, is the capital of South Africa. It is one of the most beautiful cities in South Africa, along with Cape Town and Durban. Freshen up briefly in your hotel room and get to know Pretoria's most beautiful corners on a short walk. Feel a touch of history that still hangs over the city and enjoy the colorful gardens and trees that turn the city into a colorful sea of flowers, especially in spring.

Church Square is the central point of the city, located in its historical center. Did you know that the city spread out from this square? Due to its ideal location, you can look forward to other easily accessible attractions here, such as the Palace of Justice and the old State Bank. Also, visit the Paul Kruger Museum, built in honor of Pretoria's first president. On top of a hill are the Union Buildings, the buildings of the seat of government. Although the interiors are not open to the public, a trip up the hill is well worth it - enjoy a great view over the city and relax in the inviting garden. Do you fancy a guided city tour of Pretoria with a guide? What about a half-day excursion to Soweto, today's suburb of Johannesburg? “Poverty” and “crime” are the striking words that many people associate with the suburb. But this has changed: Soweto is nowhere near as dangerous as the suburb once was, and today it has become a place of pilgrimage for tourists. Set off for Soweto with a guide and follow the steps of the freedom hero, Nelson Mandela (optional).

Duration of trip from Madikwe Game Reserve to Pretoria: approx. 4 hours / approx. 330 km
