Afrika & us

...a longlife love


We are Claudia and Robin, hosts of extraordinary safaris and professional field guides and coaches with over 12 years of experience in the African bushveld.


Join us on our active safaris in a private Big-5 Game-Reserve just a stone’s throw away from the well-known Kruger National Park and not far from the little town of Hoedspruit.


We guide and host our guests with a special eye for details, great care and enthusiasm. While on Game Drives or Bush Walks we love to share our passion and knowledge of flora & fauna and of this incredibly beautiful continent.

Discover the African bushveld with all its diversity and its wonderful sights, smells and sounds, especially noticing all the fascinating, often overlooked, smaller wonders of nature.


Take our invitation and come with us on safari - a unique experience which you will never forget!


The Lodges

...for the best moments in life

Our strength is our flexibility and we are happy to offer our safaris in two different privately run lodges, which are specially tailored to the needs of our guests.


"Clive's Safari Lodge" is located on the open planes of the game reserve and offers a unique view of Africa's countryside and its wildlife. Our five chalets are furnished with elegance and simplicity and blend into the surrounding trees, which build with their canopies a shady roof of relaxation. From the viewing deck and the pool at the main lodge, our guests enjoy fantastic views over the waterhole and the bypassing wildlife - during the day and at night.

"Weavers Nest" is the perfect place for families and small groups who want to enjoy the African animal- and birdlife up close. Privacy & exclusivity have priority at this tranquil lodge, which is located on one of the large dams in the Private Game Reserve. Five guest chalets carry all the elements of authentic bushveld living and classic elegance. They repose at the shore of the dam with superb views of the surroundings and its wildlife.


All ideal conditions for thrilling safaris and a relaxing and unforgettable stay in the African savannah!

Our Safaris

...quality and variety makes the difference

To be on SAFARI ... is a very special adventure and you can not just describe it in simple words. You have to feel and to experience it "face to face" and with all your senses.


Different safaris for different people - and just the "right thing" for everyone! Over the past 12 years, we have taken a closer look at the wishes and demands of our guests and developed new and unique safaris for everybody:

  • see the Big5 - and much more - on our game drives

  • come on a walking safari with us and get close up to nature

  • cook delicious African and International recipes

  • find your body & your soul in our yoga & pilates sessions

  • experience the bush and its wildlife on horseback

  • use nature to experience life - in a private coaching session


There are many ways to explore the African bush, but the greatest adventure remains: Immersing into the secrets of nature and getting close up to the big and small creatures - realizing that we are part of something really special!!!


Come with us - we will show you OUR Africa ...
