Stayed in the Leopard Lodge and will definitely visit again! The rooms were great and the service even better! Highly recommended for a group of friends and enjoyed the Bushman walk very much, with a special mention to Frans, our guide.

Lovely lodge in the northern part of South Africa. It's not your typical lodge where everything is included but more an extended B&B. This gives you the choice to decide what you want to do. It also offers a choice between self catering or hotel. We stayed in a luxury tent and enjoyed every minute. Located along a small stream... More

Love this place! Mobile and (free) Wi-Fi service is intermittent, which I had no problem with, as we had a lovely break from work. Accommodation consists of luxury tents and rooms at the main lodge and three self-catering chalets, a short 2 minute drive into a more private area in the bushes. The restaurant, bar and a curio shop is... More

Great service from the moment you arrive. Beautiful views from the luxury tent units. Really enjoyed the game drive and Cheetah interactions. Definitely what you would expect from a 5 star safari lodge.

We stayed in the leopard lodge for 4 days. The accommodation was lovely for self catering. Very clean and the staff were very helpful and attentive. Johnson the head of staff was fantastic. Mishak our guide on safari was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive. The breakfast was great but expensive. Afternoon sundowners on the deck was a huge treat. It's not... More

As it was my birthday, my husband and I decided to look for a special place to break away to for a few days. I came across Witwater Safari Lodge and immediately knew that this was the place I wanted to go to. We booked one of the self catering lodges and asked some friends to join us. What a... 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,

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Intimately settled on the banks of the evergreen Phalala River in the malaria free Waterberg, the five-star Witwater Safari Lodge and Spa facilitates relaxation in breathtaking surroundings. Imagine yourself pampered in our Award winning Spa with scented sea salts, then snugly wrapped in soft, warm linen. Imagine your mind drifting away to serenity while your body drinks in the tranquillity of the Waterberg. Discover a renewed self, revitalized, regenerated and fully soothed.Dining in, silver service gourmet style; or out in the sunset’s glow and candle light. Decor, Nature’s original, the menu African barbeque delight stretching far into the night. Then settle into your own luxury tented suite, while refined Rhodesian teak decks de-stresses the souls of your feet even further before you settle into a snug resting place, while the Phalala river plays its calming magic water flute through the African night.Wake up to the surrounds of the majestic Waterberg Mountains, before going out to explore the bush and meet with an abundance of game and birdlife. Thick skinned rhino squint at every move, while buffalo stare you down. Graceful giraffe frame the trees and nearby impala playing around while keeping a sharp eye out for cheetah. Then lose yourself again in a brunch prepared for kings that grace the breakfast deck, before it all starts again... ... more   less
