The cottage was well equiped and spotless with good linen but is in need of a make-over in terms of fittings and furniture (new cupboards and... More

excellent food, staff extremely friendly and accommodating. We stayed in river chalet which is completely private with pool and lapa. Buhle at the spa is very excellent at what she does, maybe a bit busy and at stages difficult to get an appointment. Game drives very educational, with a variety of animals to see, including cheetas overall an excellent experience,

Staying at Witwater was an amazing experience. The lodge is lovely but it's the service and overall experience that blew us away. The staff are so friendly, welcoming and attentive. We had some fantastic game drive experiences with Mishack, the ranger. The lodge is only 3-4 hours drive from J'burg, but you feel like you're a thousand miles from anywhere.... More

The lodge is designed to sleep 8 people comfortably in 4 en-suite double bedrooms clustered around a central boma. We had 3 small children in our large family group of 11 people, and Witwater were flexible enough... More

Absolute peace and tranquillity … just what we needed – the sound of the gurgling clean river so therapeutic. The vast and spectacular African landscape sprawled out before us. Our gorgeous room, so tastefully and comfortably decorated and although near other suites, seclusion. What efficient staff .. friendly and willing to do whatever they could to make our stay what...
