A place to re-energise the soul …..

Inzalo Safari Lodge is a luxurious tented oasis in the spectacular ‘big five’ Welgevonden Game Reserve, a 34 000 ha malaria-free protected wilderness within the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere of South Africa’s Limpopo Province.

A mere 2.5-hour drive or a 45-minute flight from Johannesburg into one of the reserve’s two airstrips, makes the Welgevonden one of the most accessible premier malaria-free reserves in the country.

Privately owned and managed by Dave and Henriette Rieger, together with their passionate and dedicated team, Inzalo Safari Lodge offers the opportunity to escape, explore and immerse oneself in the daily rhythm of the African bush.

The name Inzalo Safari Lodge (suggesting “to be reborn”) has thoughtfully been selected to personify Welgevonden Game Reserve as a vast and tranquil conservation area.

Inzalo Safari Lodge is a mere two-and-a-half hour drive from Johannesburg where our team welcomes guests to this 34000ha conservation area, with overwhelmingly beautiful landscapes, spectacular views and wildlife all within the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere.

The varied nature of the Inzalo Safari Lodge surrounds provides an ideal opportunity to intimately experience African wildlife, from the popular Big 5 to varieties of plains game, birds and other fauna and flora.

This luxurious riverside retreat at the heart of the reserve is nestled against the crystal clear Sterkstroom River where each luxury tent provides panoramic views of the river and Waterberg Sandstone cliff. This wilderness reborn provides guests the opportunity to rejuvenate in mind, body and spirit.

“I know the place just where the river starts to race…….”
Eugene Marais

Main Lodge
Inzalo Safari Lodge, a Zulu name suggesting “to be reborn”, is situated along the crystal clear Sterkstroom River. The main lodge is an airy and welcoming retreat, with large open spaces extending onto an expansive deck and bar area with spectacular views. The décor and design combine modern comforts with rustic charm to create warm and inviting spaces where guests can mingle, dine, enjoy a refreshing beverage or simply soak in the views.

Each of the lodge’s five 50 square meter custom-designed, tented safari suites have been positioned to provide maximum privacy, solitude and breath-taking views. Each suite features a private deck with splash pool overlooking the Sterkstroom River and well-stocked bar fridge. This setting allows guests to relax and enjoy the tranquillity and intimacy afforded by this exclusive ten-bed lodge.
