The Orpen Kruger Lodge is a milestone of years of toil by the Muthlwarheni Cooperative of Welverdiend Community. 

Since 2001, the cooperative has been engaged in efforts to uplift its community by setting up tourism value chain activities in this unique land bordering the Manyeleti Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park (KNP). 

Over the years, the cooperative has been supported by various organisations and government institutions, including The Mnisi Tribal Authority, The Bushbuckridge Local Municipality, the National Department of Tourism, and the Mpumalanga Parks and Tourism Agency.

This hotel is now a proud partnership, funding, and investments by the Muthlwarheni Cooperative, Mont'Dor Clares, and the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), supported by Indalo Inclusive South Africa.
