custom recovery replaces your normal recovery, allowing you to overwrite the whole system when flashing a rom
safestrap keeps the stock software, and boots a recovery on top of it, keeping the stock software while kind-of dual booting your own ROM.
Or at least i think this is how it works in a layman's term.
