About Inzalo

Owned and managed by Dave and Henriette Rieger, together with their passionate and dedicated team, Inzalo Lodge offers the opportunity to escape, explore and immerse oneself in the daily rhythm of the African bush. Safari experiences abound and include daily game drives, on-site birding, river walks, track and sign identification, bush walks, visits to San paintings, bush picnics and more.

The development and transformation of local rural communities is a key factor in enhancing protected area management for the biosphere. Local communities are enabled to actively participate in the protection and preservation of the area. Conservation projects abound and the Welgevonden Game Reserve. The Reserve maintains a low human footprint, limiting the number of lodges and guests allowed within the reserve, providing guests with the opportunity to enjoy exclusive and unrestricted views of the beautiful habitat and unique wildlife.

Activities Include:

Game Drives

Daily game drives allowing guests to experience all that Welgevonden Game Reserve has to offer. Guests can expect to see a variety of wildlife as well as plants, trees and birds.

Bird Watching

With over 300 species of birds in Welgevonden Game Reserve, birding has never been more exciting.

Visit to San Rock Paintings

The San rock art in the Waterberg portrays a rich biological diversity of animals such as the red hartebeest, eland, rhinoceros, kudu and giraffe.

Game Drive Stops

Take a moment to appreciate all the bush has to offer. Stop and have a coffee or sundowner and listen to the sounds of the bush, watch the animals and feel completely at one with nature.

Bush Picnics

Guests can enjoy a prepared picnic in the bush, overlooking the beautiful Sterkstroom River.
