Travellers' Choice
Situated three hours north of Johannesburg lies Fifty Seven Waterberg, a gem nestled in the heart of the Welgevonden Game Reserve and home to the Big Five in a malaria-free area. The Waterberg Biosphere Reserve was declared an official UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001. This magnificent five-star establishment is synonymous with tranquility, solitude and luxury; not to mention the surroundings of the breath taking panoramic views of the Waterberg mountains. Guests can unwind next to the infinity pool that overlooks a shallow valley and mountain stream that flows to a waterhole. The ten spacious suites are placed strategically along the small hill to provide maximum privacy and intimacy. All are equipped with king-sized beds and relaxing private deck where you can unwind while listening to the birds sing. The honeymoon and luxury suites have their own private splash pools for the ultimate distressing pleasure or sipping on a glass of sparkling wine.

Fifty Seven Waterberg is a magnificent place. The staff is fantastic and the game reserve is spectacular. I traveled to Came reserves all my life and this one is the most impressive. The camp had wonderful facilities.

We had an amazing time with this lodge! from the moment you get there everything is just well organized and everyone is helpful and friendly. Food is exceptional quality, tasty and beautiful! There is definitely attention to detail when it comes to the rooms. From making you feel comfortable at all times to the turn down service and they are quick an efficient. Myself and my husband must say this is one of the best and luxurious lodges we have visited as yet.

We stayed there for 2 nights. A 3rd would have been better if we had the time. Room 8 offered a very private pool and also had some animals visit the room to drink from the pool. The food and staff were amazing. The safari trips were great too. Strongly recommend.

From the breakfast to dinner and game drives etc. tranquility is the order of the day. I would however state that there is a +-15km gravel road and unfortunately it rained the day before we checked in and the trip to the establishment was very bad. they really need to do something about it as its easy to get stuck.
