About Welbedacht Game & Nature Reserve

Welcome to Welbedacht Game & Nature Reserve.

All well spaced and secluded cottages are equipped for self-catering with shady verandas, your own private mountain-water plunge pools, log fireplaces and outside braais (BBQ).

We will entertain you with over 10 km of HIKING trails, designed for all ages and conditions, trough flowery wetlands and fynbos covered mountain trails that follow perennial streams originating from springs on the reserve itself. Alternatively, a 26 km circular MTB trail cuts across the reserve with a further 35+ km in single tracks with dozens of bridges and ramps in the vicinity. For the more leisure visitor, just enjoy the WILDLIFE visiting your cottage from the comfort of your private deck!

Well equipped cottage, quaint, neat. Loved the setting and the views over the valley and neighbouring dam, the smell of the pine trees, the privacy. I prefer setting of Pine Cottage over 'Stone Cottage', as views are better and more private. Loved the splash pool, that was very welcome. What could be improved was a personal welcome, we collected keys from cupboard and never saw anyone. Was missing tall drinking glasses. Not big deal but it was very hot so it would be nice to poor a big glass of juice with ice. Fridge and bed in same room, fridge noisy, switched it off at night. Nice booklet...

We enjoyed our stay.  Pity we could not stay longer.  Only problem we encountered was the path/driveway to the cottage where the car must be parked, very uneven and rocky.  In our case we have a very low BMW that catches anything protruding.  It is ok if you have a higher car or 4x4.. otherwise it was a good venue to getaway into the quietness of nature.  The cottage had all the necessary equipment but not serviced.  Overall highly recommendable for a quiet getaway!

I'm hesitant to write too glowing a review as we wish to try and keep this place to ourselves but that wouldn't be fair. Our stay couldn't have been any better, the Stone Cottage was absolutely perfect for a couple. Private, clean, beautiful view, indoor fireplace if needed, great braai area, all necessary amenities. It was the perfect place to base for a weekend exploring Tulbagh and surrounds. It was amazing to come home every afternoon, have a dip in the pool overlooking the valley then go for an evening walk around the reserve. We will definitely be back. Thank you.
