Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway

Accommodation in Welgevonden Private Game Reserve

Star Rating:4

Created as a tribute to the unique splendour of the African Wilderness, Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway towers over the landscape combining modern African living, simplicity and an abundance of flavour with unique wildlife experiences in the Welgevonden Game Reserve. Only 3 hours by road from Johannesburg this is an easily accessible destination of unparalleled beauty.

The Welgevonden Private Game Reserve is the result of a pioneering project begun in 1987 to return farmland to its original natural state. As a result thereof, it has grown to become one of South Africa’s premier privately held reserves. Ambitious game relocation efforts and careful ecological management have resulted in a reserve today that is home to the Lion, Leopard, Elephant, White Rhino, Cheetah, Brown Hyena, 15 different types of buck, and 30 other species of mammal
