Satisfy your wilderness craving while ensconced in decadent extravagance in one of the 8 luxury suites of the five-star Clifftop Lodge. Ensconced within the Waterberg Mountains and the Welgevonden Private Game Reserve in South Africa. Clifftop Lodge Overlooks the Sterkstroom River Valley. With indoor and outdoor showers, each guest room provides unsurpassed views of the opposing cliff-face where opportunities to view the exquisitely beautiful wild game in the privacy of your very own private deck and plunge pool.
Travel to this high-luxury wilderness get-away requires travel of 2 ½ hours by car from Jahannesburg, and the trip is well-worth the time to reach “South Africa’s hottest bush destination”, as touted by South African Tourism. In this malaria-free district, tourists find the ultimate relaxation mingled with conservation and its ecological design concept, which recently received recognition by the United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).
Welgevonden, a result of a 1987 pioneering project to restore and preserve Africa’s original wild state, touts being a leading privately detained reserve in the area with successful game relocation efforts of multiple species indigenous to Africa, including lions, cheetahs, hyenas, 280 birds, and counting, animals many will never see in their natural, wild environment that can be seen here from cliff-top views.
With future expansion of Welgevonden looming as extension into Marakele National Park begins, the two private reserves will come together to allow all game to freely roam across the nearly 150,000 hectares, combined, for an even more massive and unforgettable African bush experience.

The modern lavishness of the accommodations creates a refreshing and startling contrast to the wilds just beyond reach of each comfortably furnished balcony. Welcoming, courteous and well-trained staff will make your stay comfortable, refreshing, and personalized. Guests can easily obtain a relaxing Swedish massage and a candlelit dinner for the evening by entreating the lodge’s accomplished spa services or ordering from their excellent cuisine and wine cellar to provide a memorable, tranquil, and private dining experience.
