“A perfect lodge, unique located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

In September 2013 we stayed for 2 nights in the Cheetah lodge of owner and hostess Issabella.
The lodges are new and are equipped with a very comfortable bed with a perfect view (the windows are extra low, from your bed you have a view on the bush), a modern bathroom with a good shower, coffee and tea facilities, good linen and a private terrace where you can enjoy the view and the silence. If you want you can also relax at the pool.
You can do daytrips in the very beautiful surrounding of the Ama Amanzi Game Lodge.

We had a very warm welcome from the owner, Issabella. She did all of her best to make our stay a memorable stay. Breakfast and dinner where prepared by Isabella herself and were excellent, just like the wine. One night we also had a “braai”, very lovely. Thank you very much Isabella for your hospitality. We had an excellent stay and we certainly come back if we visit South - Africa.

Thanks,

Lex and Ingrid

Isabella has made a perfect place to stay. She has designed the bungalows, pool and surrounding area herself and its really beautiful. Very comfortable rooms where you have privacy and peace and quiet. She welcomed us, along with her friendly dogs, to her home and did eveything she could to make our short stay memorable.

Dinner was cooked by Isabella in her kitchen and we had breakfast there as well. If it had been warmer she would serve you on the lovely terrace of your bungalow if you wish. The food was delicious and she made us a great packed lunch to take with us the next day.

Good luck Isabella with your business, take care and we hope to come and see you again one day. Christine and John

A very nice place lost in the bush ... I had found the farm house a little disappointing, but Michiel allowed me to switch to one of the two African lodges, which are just amazing. In the middle of nowhere, but still very comfortable! And the pool is so tempting... Definitely a place to consider when visiting the Waterberg.

Gave a true Wild feelling, living in the middle of no-where (Bush), surronded by Wildlife.

Though quite new, Hospitality by Michiel and his 9 dogs were amazing, we have a 2.5year kid who fell in love with his dogs who are quite friendly and lovable.

If you are looking for pure Wild Africa trip, safe and good hospitality, its a place to go.

We had a wonderful stay in the Ceetah lodge. Everything was perfectly arranged from the welcome by Issabella and Michiel, dinner until the breakfast the next morning.
The surroundings are very beautiful and the lodges of excellent quality.
Definitely a place to consider, we will certainly visit again.
