Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway

DestinationWelgevonden Reserve

Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway is a tranquil sanctuary amidst remarkable scenery - a wildlife retreat of extraordinary beauty and home to countless animals and bird species that call the rocky ravines and rolling wooded mountains of this stunning private reserve home.

Tranquillity is interrupted only by the sound of crickets cooling themselves down or the sound of the roaring river a hundred metres below. Relax on your private deck enjoying the cool breeze or bundle up in front of one of the lodge’s cosy fires. Whether you’re on honeymoon or simply seeking a romantic vacation, the seclusion and romance throughout Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway makes it the perfect choice.

For companies, Clifftop offers basic conferencing facilities for up to 16 delegates. Don’t think that you will be sitting in a room all day as you will have the opportunity set off on your game drive, devour delicious bush cuisine and bond with your colleagues within a breath taking setting.

Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway brings the bush to life delivering a private and romantic retreat located within Limpopo’s beautiful Waterberg, just three hours’ drive from Johannesburg.

Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway Amenities

Awash with the sounds of the Sterkstroom River flowing below, each of the 8 luxury suites is en suite, with both indoor and outdoor showers. Each room has its own private deck and plunge pool affording our guests the opportunity to watch game in the river valley and the opposing cliff face while basking in the privacy of their secluded suites. Commanding a magnificent view of the Sterkstroom River valley, the saligna decks of the main complex are complemented by the rimless pool. Enjoy sundowners from an extensive bar, a sherry next to one of the many indoor fireplaces, or cocktails on the pool deck while watching the magnificent sunset. Affectionately known as “Oupa se Stoel”, the site for the wine cellar is the heart of the central main lodge. It is a place where one can rest, engulfed by the serenity of the view and the murmur of the river below.

Directions To Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway

A pleasant 2.5-hour drive, or an easy 45-minute flight from Johannesburg into one of 2 airstrips makes Welgevonden the most accessible premier wilderness reserve in the country and it is MALARIA FREE! Each lodge on Welgevonden is secluded, hidden from view, on their own freehold portion of this vast reserve. They can traverse and have free access to the whole unfenced sanctuary. This is not a resort or property development opportunity - Welgevonden is a vast premier game sanctuary with a very limited number of exclusive safari lodges, jealously guarded and managed for future sustainable use and appreciation. Most of these stunning lodges are limited to 10 guests only and have been built to a strict aesthetic code. A handful of the lodges are run as 5 star luxury commercial destinations for discerning guests and can be booked through us.

Area Attractions

Game viewing in open vehicles affords guests the opportunity of viewing fauna and flora, whilst traversing the undulating hills, following river courses and open savannah plains.The reserve is well stocked with lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, rhino, elephant, zebra, giraffe and plenty of other mammals, birds and trees. Perched on a cliff overlooking the Sterkstroom River, one of the watercourses that give the Waterberg its name, Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway was designed by one of South Africa’s leading architects to be eco-friendly, both in its aesthetics and in its impact. The result is a truly breathtaking lodge that offers the seclusion of the African bush, yet with the small luxuries that make for a relaxing and invigorating game experience.

Perhaps the most beautiful accommodation I have experienced to date. The room is completely private, has a beautiful deck with plunge pool overlooking a cliff with a beautiful river below. The privacy and space is well worth the cost. Service and food was excellent. Would definitely go back. So if you want a Safari with absolute comfort and beauty then choose this one!

My hubby and I have just returned home from the most amazing weekend away at Clifftop Lodge. From the minute we set foot through the gate to the minute we left, the service we received was phenomenal. The staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful. The accommodation is beautiful and the setting is breathtaking. The food is fantastic and the game drives brilliant. Thank you for making our wedding anniversary a weekend we will never forget!

Warm, friendly, personalised service makes this lodge stand out. Ursula has done wonders with her team and Martin and Sebastian proved the case. The lodge itself ticks all the boxes: spectacular setting; peace and quiet; light, airy and very private living spaces; above average food and knowledgeable rangers
