Cheetah Ridge Reviews

  • Flag of the United Kingdom

    “The room was fantastic, with a view of a watering hole where we saw impala, buffalo and warthogs. The staff went above and beyond to make our time special. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and would stay here again without hesitation.”

  • Flag of South Africa

    “We really enjoyed our stay at Cheetah Ridge Lodge. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The food, the game drives and the spa exeptional. Thank you to the whole team for making our visit unforgettable. Would definitely visit again!”

    “Great individual accommodation where everything has been thought of. Fire lit in the room on cold nights with bed turned down and electric blanket on. I felt so spoilt! View of dam with the resident hippo. Absolute luxury.”

    “We were met by two very enthusiastic guides, Leslie and Ryan, who escorted us during our whole stay. They were extremely knowledgable, helpful and had a wonderful sense of humour. The room was fantastic; we could see wildlife from our veranda. During the drive, we always stopped for hot chocolate or other drinks. When we arrived back to our chalet, the staff had already made the fire, which was welcome in the wintery days. The food was top quality in terms of quantity and variation, and the staff were excellent.”

    “A great place to visit and relax. Everything from the room, food, spa and game drives were exceptional. What made it five stars was our game-driver Brent. His knowledge, energy and professionalism were second to none (best driver we’ve ever had on a game drive). Brent even went out of his way to research where a couple of the battles of the Boer War occurred on the reserve (after we asked about it in an earlier conversation) and took us to the locations on a later game drive (provided us with a detailed explanation which he researched in his own time). Exceptional service!!”
