Sediba Game Lodge

Sediba offers exclusivity, style and luxury against a backdrop of wild Africa in all her splendour. Situated in the 'Big 5' Welgevonden Private Game Reserve. It is only a 3- hour drive from Johannesburg.

Floating between the towering trees and the forest floor, each of Sediba's fifteen suites embraces the natural environment whilst offering the ultimate in sumptuous comfort and tranquility. The open-plan suites, each with lounge, double bedroom and en-suite bathroom, open onto personal secluded viewing decks overlooking the majestic Waterberg mountains. No luxury or detail has been overlooked to create a tranquil haven and a truly unique wildlife experience. Guests are assured of personal service around the clock. Gourmet chefs prepare excellent cuisine and our wine cellar is stocked with exclusive vintage wines.

A wildlife world of adventure awaits our guests on game drives from 4x4 open jeep or in private hides. Guided by experienced, knowledgeable rangers, guests can view big 5 game, such as elephant, lion and rhino or relish more intimate encounters with other fauna and flora.

Sediba consists of two all-suite lodges, Letlapa and Letlapala. Letlapa meaning 'rock' lodge, is situated in a valley with a perennial stream running through it. Letlapa has ten double suites and is, as a result of the design and sheer size of the suites the more spectacular of the two lodges. Letlapala translated to 'place of the sun', is the more intimate of the two lodges as it has a mere five double guest suites and one main lodge. The lodges are separated by a gravel road and are a ten minute drive apart from one another and as both provide an equal source of well-being and complete relaxation.

Best of TED - Jon Ronson: When online shaming spirals out of control



Twitter gives a voice to the voiceless, a way to speak up and hit back at perceived injustice. But sometimes, says Jon Ronson, things go too far. In a jaw-dropping story of how one un-funny tweet ruined a woman's life and career, Ronson shows how online commenters can end up behaving like a baying mob — and says it's time to rethink how we interact online.

Best of TED - Johann Hari: Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong



What really causes addiction — to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do — and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.
