BIG 5/GAME DRIVE EXPERIENCE
Imagine viewing hippos, waterbuck, and a host of other wild animals, congregating at a watering hole, at close range, from the comfort of your private viewing deck.
Or, in the early morning, observing the African fish eagle, known as “the voice of Africa” for its distinctive ringing cry, make a ‘kill’, as it swoops down to feed on its primary diet of fish, snatching its prey from the water with its large, clawed talons.
And, when you turn in for the night, enjoying the solitude and splendour of this pristine wilderness, with just the “Good Lord Deliver Us” whistling call of the fiery-necked nightjar to lull you to sleep.
Set in spectacular surroundings, Cheetah Ridge Lodge’s three tailored accommodation options make it the ultimate venue for business meetings and the ideal destination for families, couples, and solo travellers—not to mention game and bird watchers, and battlefield and photo-safari tourists.
These options include:
Fully-catered accommodation in 10 sumptuous luxury suites overlooking a private watering hole
A plush family suite, which sleeps up to six people, in the main lodge
A separate self-catering lodge, perfect for a relaxed family getaway, or retreat with friends.
Each free-standing luxury suite overlooks a private watering-hole, allowing guests the opportunity to observe a vast array of congregating African wildlife from the privacy of their personal viewing deck.
Each and every staff member were so friendly and happy. The room was luxurious, spotless and situated overlooking the waterhole. The food was divine and plenty of it and Piwa made sure we were never thirsty! But my highlight was a wonderful experience we had among the elephants on one of our game drives. Jamie was phenomenal and his calm demeanor, knowledge, and understanding of his beloved elephants, was mindblowing!

What a lovely stay! I love the homely feeling of the lodge, yet you are still wrapped in luxury. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Excellent babysitting service. The Ranger was so accommodating and took us on a separate game drive with our 2-year-old girls and looked for animals they would love. I am already planning our second trip to this establishment.

We were in the self-catering unit which was beautiful, spacious and had its own outside space with a pool, fire/ bbq area and a swing which was ideal for our 3-year-old.The daily game drives were with Grayson who was brilliant – we had some amazing animal sightings. We will definitely be back at Cheetah Ridge and would recommend it to everyone.
