On Friday May 16 we arrived at Bergwaters to be met by Ivan the owner and host. We were shown around the very charming and solitude inspiring lodge and to our well appointed room complete with romantic turndown and bottle of sparkling wine. This was to be the beginning of what can only be described as a truly blissfull weekend.... More

Our stay at Bergwaters was a bit of an up-and-down experience. Our initial contact with Ivan was great and he really went the extra mile to accommodate us and slot us in during our requested dates. I must admit, however, our first impressions of the property upon arrival weren't that great. In order to access Bergwaters, you have to drive... More

We had booked in for the night on our way to JHB. At around midnight three armed men, wearing balaclavas entered into our room and robbed us using extreme force, of all our valuables. The leader ripped all my jewelry off my arms whilst pointing a gun at my head. After the attack we managed to wake the owner who... More

Understandably Emmy H is very upset about what happened to her, as are we. I do however believe that some of the facts have been omitted and some distorted in Emmy's review. First, Emmy fails to highlight the fact that there was NO FORCED ENTRY, i.e the locks and latches provided where not used, and valuables were not safely stowed... More

After a long year we were hoping to have a relaxing hassle free holiday over December 2013. I regret to say that for the most part the stay was not worth the money or hassle driving on the dirt road to the lodge. On arrival we were greeted by one of the son's and shown to our unit. The state... More

On 20 July 2013 I was fortunate, and absolutely blessed, to get married at this beautiful lodge. Tucked in between the mountains of Waterval Boven, away from the rush of the city and everyday-worries, lies this picture-perfect venue - ideal for a tranquil getaway or, as in our case, a small and intimate wedding. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed... More
