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.

We had an exceptional time for our 10th wedding anniversary. Staff were amazing Architecture, facilities and luxury finishes were top class. Games drives were magical with amazing encounters. BUT the food blew our minds!!! We have had our share of culinary experiences but this was a notch up. Every meal was exceptional. Kenneth made us feel at home, William made for the best game drives and Mpho blew our minds with his food. Well done 57!

Each stay at 57 Waterberg has been just as memorable as our previous stays. The simple booking service, pre-arrival process is conducted as expertly as the game drives by highly knowledgeable rangers, fine dining meals and maintenance of their luxurious suits! We`ll be back!

Everything was just perfect from arrival until departure. We felt very spoiled by all the team members. The luxury villa is an absolute dream. So sad we missed the ellies at our pool the first day. We'll have to come back for that. Gamedrives very good with very knowledgeable ranger with a great sense of humour. Food fantastic although having the same starter on 2 different days was a slight disappointment. But then again it was a very tasty one. Already planning our next visit.
