We stayed for one night during a 5 day safari trip. We were greeted very kindly by Doris and Jurgen when we arrived. Our tent was located right next to the watering hole and was very luxurious with traditional African furniture, a massive bathroom with twin sinks, indoor and outdoor shower and bath. The whole place dining area, bar, swimming... More

My daughter andI I came in mid Feb; this was my daughter first experience of Africa. Just on the drive to the lodge, we saw some wild animals such girafes and wilderbests etc... Which provided us with a great start. The lodge was beautiful, our "tent" was very luxurious and spacious. We even had an indoor shower and outdoor one!... More

Spent 3 days at Cheetah Paw and we just had the most wonderful time. The rooms are nicely decorated and each have their own theme.

I stayed at the Cheetah Paw Eco Lodge for a three-day safari in Kruger park. I booked the whole package through Themba Safari tours and did not know what to expect. Let me say, I was much happier than other members of the safari that stayed at different lodges. While the Cheetah Paw is fairly new, the accommodations and staff... More

I stayed at Cheetah Paw in December 2014 and had an absolutely incredible time. The location is ideal, the staff is exceptional and the food is fantastic. Wild, but not dangerous wild animals roam freely all around the property and often pose for photos! I would definitely go back!

We came in not expecting anything as this is a new lodge (opened June 2014) that didn't have any reviews when we booked it. The lodge itself is clean and basic, but without much charm. (The cement structures are quite plain and the rooms sparingly decorated). The bungalows and their bathrooms are spacious and face a quite big natural waterhole... More
