From the moment you arrive and cross the little bridge overflowing with fresh water you know it's going to be a good weekend. We were welcomed with drinks and all covid protocols were strictly applied, in saying that being in the fresh air for the weekend felt like an escape from the stress of last year. The accommodation was outstanding, from the luxury bathrooms to private deck pools, views to die for, privacy, wonderful huge beds...the list goes on. The meals were superb and the chef went out of her way to accommodate extremely picky eating kids for all three meals. Breakfast on the last day was a highlight! You are able to fish from the privacy of your deck or from various beautiful safe green lawn areas and we even had the chance to be accompanied by the Ranger to a dam with crocodiles. Never experienced anything more exhilarating, and this comes from someone who is extremely scared of animals. Shaun, the Ranger knew what he was doing! The game drive was a highlight, there's nothing quite like seeing hippos in their natural habitat. Waking up to the sound of hippos and rain was just amazing, cannot fault the service and staff, they were so friendly and made the stay even more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this for a romantic couples or family getaway. If your kids are not into the outdoors the excellent WiFi connectivity will do the trick.

Vegan friendly!! The most incredible experience spent at this luxurious venue. The tranquil surroundings, wonderful friendly, kind and caring staff, great food, incredible accommodation. A swimming pool on our deck overlooking the crocodiles and hippos. Waking up to the sounds of the weaver and the cry of the Piet my Vrou. The rumblings of the hippos splashing in front of your tent. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. This place is a massage to your soul. Revitalizing, invigorating, enriching. Cannot wait for eProperty.Net’s real estate conference in 2021!! A slice of heaven!!

A bit of heaven. Experience the bush in 5 star luxury in spacious, beautifully furnished rooms or luxurious glamping on the river with hippos and large variety of antelope and bird life. Scrumptious food and excellent and friendly service. Highly recommended.

If you think the picture on the website oversells this venue, you are sorely mistaken. The abundance of water on the property makes this arguably one of the most beautiful game lodges in the Waterberg area. The conferencing facilities are first class and with the high-speed free Wifi available to all guests, this is the perfect destination for a conference, team building or incentive break away. The excellent food is only trumped by the excellence and friendliness of the staff. Truly a hidden gem in the Waterberg!
