Created as a tribute to the unique splendour
of the African Wilderness

Perched regally amidst the bush willows on the tip of a magnificent gorge overlooking the Sterkstroom River, Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway is your idyllic sanctuary in the African Bush. A romantic, secluded hideaway from the world’s worries that caters to an intimate encounter with the magnificent UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere inside Welgevonden Private Game Reserve.

Sip a soothing G&T as you relax in your very own plunge pool overlooking the gorge, or disappear in to the depths of a comfortable wicker chair to watch the glorious scenery and varied wildlife.

Clifftop is a serene sanctuary amidst spectacular scenery; a wildlife retreat of extraordinary beauty and home to a myriad of animal and bird species that call the rocky ravines and rolling wooded mountains of this stunning private reserve home.

Your precious privacy is interrupted only by the sound of the bushveld from your elevated suite deck and the sound of the roaring river a hundred metres below.

Relax on your private deck enjoying the cool breeze or sip a full-bodied red wine in front of one of the lodge’s cosy fires. Whether you’re on honeymoon or simply seeking a romantic sojourn, Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway will soothe your soul; its characteristic silver, grey and white tones, private nooks and natural wood and stone features creating a sense of calm throughout.

The seclusion and romance throughout Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway makes it an incredible wedding destination and heaven for honeymooners. Spend the best day of your life or the days thereafter in intimate surroundings with the one you love.

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

Romance the bush at Clifftop and it will romance you right back.
