We expected more of this place, because it is run by Dutch people. The place, room, the swimming pool everything is out dated and needs a face lift. We had bedcovers with holes in it. The price of a gamedrive with 3 persons in Kruger Park is 550 rand that is about €35 and they offer a game drive for... More

As per other reviews: 1. Credit Card - Still not working ("down") and only cash accepted as pointed out in a review 6+ months ago. 2. Dirty - Staff didn't seem to be working on Sunday and the pool and braai area were full of rubbish since the Sat night. Perhaps owner and family could stop sitting around and spend... More

I spent two nights here catching up with a friend and really enjoyed myself. Sure it was inexpensive, and as I had no illusions of grandeur, I loved it. The owners haven't been there that long and have a bit of work to do, but they were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Anyone who has been to and done research on... More

My wife has never been to the Kruger Park, so we decided to go in at one of the southern gates and come out at Orpen Gate. We chose the Cheetah Inn due to its proximity to the gate which would allow us more time in the park. Thankfully we only booked one night. Our room was shocking - a... More

Very nice place! The food is very good, amazing people around you, nice lay out of the building, the pool, the braai area and the rooms. The hosts are very kind and always ready to help and have a chat. Very good value for your money. I would visit again any time.

Its a budget place, fair enough but be aware that you are going to be ripped off once you there! After complaining about the price of dinner R150 (was maybe worth R70 at the most), I was told that he does not cater for South Africans, that I should change my attitude because R150 equals Euro12 so his Dutch guests...

After having traveled 3 weeks through SA we spent 1 night in Cheetah Inn. We have seen many positive reviews so we decided to stay there on our way from KNP to Jo'burg. Entering the property made a first positive impression. The second impression - on our way to the reception - was not that positive as it looked like... More

This was a last minute booking for our group of 20. We were thankful to be able to keep our group together, although there was a slight mixup on the booking and the first night two couples had to share a room and the second night the one of the couples went to another accommodation. The facility was clean enough,... More

Good morning, Thank you for your review. We regret the fact that in your opinion, some things were missing at Cheetah Inn. As this guest indicated it was a last minute booking. The group didn´t make the booking, but their travel agent. With the travel agent we discussed the room layout, breakfasts, dinners etc. The agent has been informed what... More

We stayed there just for a night but everything worked well. We got dinner even though it is theoretically only pre-booked and had a good sleep. The bathroom is a bit outdated but the area around the building is quite nice. Daytrips to Kruger are possible, but needs some driving
