After dreaming about living in the bush for many years, Patrick and Elly Suverein bought Ximuwu in March 2016. Originally from the Netherlands, the Suverein’s travelled throughout Africa for decades and together visited over 30 different countries in Africa. Together with their friends Marcel and Monique, they decided that Klaserie in South Africa would be the perfect place to settle down.

In 2020, after a few happy years enjoying the bush, Patrick and Elly felt a need to share their paradise with others. And so, plans to develop the property began. Having designed the lodge from start to finish, the Suverein’s personal involvement has been integral to the success of Ximuwu. Today the couple live permanently on the property and feel immense joy in sharing their home with others from around the world. When visiting Ximuwu you can expect to see them out in the bush helping to find sightings, welcoming you for a drink at the bar or coming to say ‘howzit’. Their passion is seeing happy guests enjpying Ximuwu!
