Top Secret

The name Welgevonden, which means ‘well found’ in the Afrikaans language, hints at the impressive bio-diversity the reserve boasts.

Origins

Waterberg Biosphere Reserve was officially declared by UNESCO in 2001, and covers an area in excess of 4000 km². Fifty-Seven Waterberg was initially founded as the Molen Vliet Lodge. It has subsequently been transformed into one of the most luxurious lodges within the Welgevonden park.
