Clifftop Lodge is situated on a cliff overlooking the Sterkstroom River in the Welgevonden Private Game Reserve. The lodge offers the seclusion of the African bush, yet with the small luxuries that make for a relaxing and invigorating game experience.
Accommodation is in 8 suites which each have a private deck with plunge pool and thatched sala. There are also indoor and outdoor showers. The suites also have air conditioning, direct dial telephones, hairdryers, mini bars, room safes, separate bath and shower with bath consumables, tea/coffee making facilities, electric blankets, indoor and outdoor lounges, and viewing decks overlooking the cliffs onto Sterkstroom River.
Activities at the lodge include safaris in open 4x4 vehicles, bush picnics and breakfasts on the river bank, and nearby elephant back safaris (at additional cost).
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, 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.
