Two daily Game Drives are conducted by our experienced nature guide, who has been working in the Welgevonden Game Reserve for many years. With exceptional knowledge of the animals and the area, Game Drives will certainly be a highlight! The lodge features a waterhole which offers exciting game viewing throughout the day where a variety of animals quench their daily thirsts.


Game-viewing is one of the most important aspects of your experience at Jamila Lodge.

Early morning game drives begin in the cool of dawn as the sun rises over the horizon and the second game drive of the day, in the late afternoon which includes a stop to enjoy a refreshing sundowner whilst watching the African sun set.

The Welgevonden Game Reserve is the perfect setting for exciting safari holidays. It is here in rugged ravines and on wooded Waterberg mountains that sightings of the ‘Big Five’, a rich variety of wildlife and over 300 bird species can be enjoyed.

Under an open African sky, you can dine on the main deck or in lamplight alongside the gently illuminated waterhole. Guests can round off their break by enjoying a wonderful dinner in the Boma.
