The lodge was designed by one of South Africa’s leading architects to be eco-friendly, both in its aesthetics and in its impact.

Situated in the Malaria free Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg Mountains, Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway is a special place where service is understood and luxury is elegantly understated. The lodge offers a dramatic fusion of African and Western cuisine, far surpassing expectations of even the most discerning diner, with the addition of an extensive wine cellar, any wine lover would appreciate.
