Lodge rooms are comfortable with the most spectacular views as far as the horizon from such an elevation. Watched the sunrise which lit up the Waterberg mountain as the backdrop of the lodge. Rooms are hot in Summer despite the fan so the private cold...More

No doubt, the placement of the individual lodges are absolutely perfect. And the view from them are just amazing. You have your owm little "pool" to cool down and it was proper and well chlored. The lodges in themselves are very minimalistic and maybe a...More

About
Description
Nestled on a rock terrace high up on the slope of the Waterberg, the chalets of the Waterberg Plateau Lodge afford grand vistas of the endless Kalahari bush savannah below. Each of the eight double room chalets More sits between red sandstone rocks in the midst of green bush, with total privacy guaranteed. Acacias shade the terrace; a plunge pool filled with spring water provides cooling and attracts birds and small game. Less
