about us

Private Safaris

Founded by Patrick and Elly Suverein, Ximuwu is a bespoke luxury lodge for private groups of up to 8. Our goal is to provide an authentic, intimate safari experience. At Ximuwu, Patrick, Elly, managers Anet and Matt, and our devoted staff ensure your stay is exceptional.

With a private game viewing vehicle, guided by our expert tracker, you control your safari schedule and activities. Each Ximuwu safari is unique, tailored to your desires.

Ximuwu offers a personal nature escape where every experience is exclusively yours.




Patrick and Elly Suverein, originally from the Netherlands, turned their vision into reality by acquiring Ximuwu in 2016. After an extensive journey through 30 African nations, they found their heart in South Africa’s Klaserie.

The year 2021 marked a new chapter as they opened the doors of their bush haven with Ximuwu’s launch. Their unique design flair has been instrumental in crafting its distinctive appeal. Now calling Klaserie their home, they delight in hosting international visitors. Guests at Ximuwu can anticipate engaging encounters, from shared stories at the bar to a friendly ‘howzit’ greeting.

Patrick and Elly’s ultimate reward is watching guests immerse themselves in the Ximuwu experience, a testament to their dedication to world-class safari hospitality.
