“Pleasant, peaceful, and hospitable at a resonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2009

This lodging is owned and operated by Viva Safaris of JNB (vivasaf@icon.co.za). It is an excellent place to base out of to do wildlife viewing in Kruger Game Park utilizing the Orpen Gate. Especially during the dry season an abundance of animals can be viewed in the Park between Orpen and Satara. We saw the Big 5 on three out of the 4 days we went into the Park!
The staff at the Inn were very helpful and accommodating - responding quickly and efficiently to our requests. We enjoyed a refreshing swim in the pool in the late afternoon sun followed by scrumptous dinners outside near the campfire.
My wife and I led two groups of Habitat for Humanity volunteers to Mozambique to build houses and worked with Viva Safaris and Cheetah Inn to offer some rest and recreation before returning home. It was great value and a pleasant experience.

We booked Cheetah Inn through Viva Safaris, which was recommended on TripAdvisor. The whole experience was fantastic. Viva safaris looked after us from our arrival in Johannesburg airport until they dropped us back there again for our departure.

We stayed in very spacious, clean rooms in Cheetah Inn. The staff were so fantastic and courteous and made our stay all the more enjoyable. We had a barbeque (braii) on our second night by the boma (fire) which was a wonderful African experience. The whole safari trip was amazing and we were lucky enough to see 3 out of the Big 5 on our full day safari.

I would recommend Cheetah Inn and Viva Safaris to groups of travellers, couples, solo travellers. They looked after us so well from start to finish, employed experienced knowledgeable guides, and all in all the trip was fantastic value.

Highly recommended.
