Description:

Kololo Game Reserve is situated in the beautiful province of Limpopo, South Africa, in the heart of the Waterberg biosphere. Kololo borders to the Big 5 Welgevonden Game Reserve (located approximately 200 m from the reception and restaurant). Kololo is a perfect safari destination because it is a malaria-free area, child friendly and home to a large variety of game. Visit neighbouring reserve Welgevonden Game Reserve (of which Kololo is also part) and view the Big 5 - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo - or enjoy a sneak preview over the fence, from the comfort of your chalet at Kololo.

Child Friendly, Big 5 & accommodation between "safe"wildlife

Children of all ages are welcome, Kololo is therefore perfect for families with children. The "big game" is safely behind the Welgevonden fence which allows children to walk and play on Kololo and still have the adventure of small game surrounding them.

Kololo has its own gate near the reception, which provides direct access to Welgevonden Game Reserve. Kololo therefore has a unique concept: the Big 5 and accommodation in a luxurious, comfortable lodge where only the safe wildlife roams free.

Vast, peaceful and incredibly beautiful, this is a fascinating destination with a rich cultural legacy and a natural splendour. Accommodation features upmarket villas and chalets, positioned in the pristine bushveld so privacy and relaxation is guaranteed. Kololo is a popular Limpopo game reserve and is conveniently situated only 3 hours from Johannesburg International Airport.


Accommodation:

With 15 upmarket chalets and villas, privacy and relaxation are guaranteed. The restaurant and bar has two lookout decks providing unparalleled views of the bush. Mouth-watering dishes are served by the resident gourmet chef. In addition, there is a large heated swimming pool, a resident game ranger offering guests both game drives and walks, babysitting services, ADSL/Internet access, air charter flights, airport transfers. Mobile phone access is available around the reception area. Kololo welcomes people with impaired mobility: chalet Kudu is completely wheelchair friendly.
