Winter romance at Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway: the ‘it’ place for couples

Whether you’re booking your honeymoon accommodation or celebrating an anniversary, engagement, or spontaneous mid-year getaway, Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway is ideal for couples. A lodge to return to, time and time again, with sweeping views, private plunge pools and designer spaces – it ticks all the boxes as far as romance is concerned. 

Just a three-hour drive from Johannesburg in the malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve, there’s no better place to reconnect with that special person in your life.  

Aside from off-peak rates and ample availability, here’s why Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway tops the travel list this winter: 

A private escape 

Our lodge is perched on the edge of a gorge, offering unobstructed, expansive views of the ancient cliffs and surrounding bush. Couples are guaranteed total privacy and exclusivity with only eight two-person villas. Each is a sanctuary with a private deck, ideal for sundowners or a pampering spa treatment, and the villas are so well-appointed, you can simply cocoon for the duration of your stay. 

Game viewing at its best 

Couples looking to experience the thrill of big game are guaranteed to find what they’re looking for at Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway. Wildlife activities include guided morning and evening safaris and bush walks that offer the chance to connect more closely with nature and appreciate all the smaller creatures of the bush—dung beetles at work, impalas darting through the undergrowth and 250 species of birds. And as the bush thins out during winter, the Welgevonden Game Reserve’s abundance of wildlife becomes even easier to spot. 

Tuck in! 

Dining at Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway is an experience in itself. Our menus are thoughtfully crafted with meat and plant-based options and our skilled team in the kitchen is always ready to whip up a winter feast. Whether bush breakfasts, dinner under the stars, or a nightcap huddled indoors close to the fire, you’re guaranteed a romantic ambience that’s unparalleled.   

At Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway, we’re always prepared with bottles of bubbly and a well-stocked wine cellar, ideal for special occasions and memorable toasts.

Make memories  

Welgevonden Game Reserve is unique, and that’s exactly why our guests return, even when the temperatures drop. If you’re an avid photographer, you’ll love that crisp winter light and the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets the bush is famous for.  

Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway is the perfect setting should you wish to go down on one knee – our team is always close at hand to help make it happen exactly how you imagined it.
