Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway: Relax & re-energise in breath-taking surroundings

Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway

Perched on a remarkable cliff-edge in the malaria-free Welgevonden Private Game Reserve, in Limpopo’s Waterberg Mountains, Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway is a unique holiday resort.

It was designed to get you, your family, loved or group, to fully relax and re-energise in the unspoilt and breath-taking surroundings of the Limpopo bushveld. Experience the thrill of living or dining while watching the local wildlife grazing by or gathering at the watering spot.

A fact that many of their previous guests also noted is that the lodge might be hidden deep in the African bushveld, but there is no compromise on service excellence and luxury at Clifftop Exclusive Safari Lodge.

But why take our word for it? Book your next outing, holiday or anniversary and discover this hidden gem.

Reviews from previous Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway guests

“Our stay at Clifftop was the highlight of our trip to South Africa! It exceeded all expectations! The food was delicious, the game drives were incredible and the guides were so knowledgeable (especially Victor!). The hotel itself is beautiful and impeccably designed. It was our little slice of heaven. We will definitely be visiting again and I highly recommend it to others!” wrote Pasta Monster on their TripAdvisor page.

Chantgriffin added; “My husband and I spent the weekend at Clifftop Exclusive for our 20th wedding anniversary. It was a lovely weekend, accommodation more than ample, with our own exclusive plunge pool. Very private and relaxing. Food excellent, service from Hazel and Naomi, Oupa and Emmanuel outstanding. And game drives with Prince great. In room massages offer an ultimate de-stressed addition to the weekend. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing getaway with your partner, Clifftop is highly recommended.”

“We loved our all-inclusive stay at Clifftops. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff went out of their way to make it a truly memorable evening. The game drives were amazing and we were able to see the big five. We spent approximately 7hours a day on drives (morning and evening). The food is very good, fine dining standards and the sundowners were definitely memorable. Wonderful staff, knowledgeable guides, luxurious facilities and delectable meals. We look forward to returning in the near future,” said tashn14.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
