The Welgevonden Private Game Reserve is a 34 200 ha, privately owned game reserve in the heart of the Waterberg in the Limpopo province of South Africa. It first started as a conservation area in 1993 through a private sector initiative that resulted in the consolidation of numerous individual farms.
Before the development of this malaria-free game reserve, cattle farming was the dominant land use practice, and although agriculture was limited in this region, the old fields that were cultivated are visible and constitute a distinct component of the landscape.
The reserve is on the Waterberg Plateau and comprises mountainous terrain that is dissected by deep valleys and kloofs, with occasional old lands that have been allowed to regenerate since the reserve's proclamation. Flat plateaus characterise most hilltops, and the altitude varies from 1080 m above sea level at the main entrance gate to the north of the pool to 1800 m above sea level in the southern section of the reserve.
