Hard to believe the entire operation is run by two people, however from the moment Simon picked us up we knew we were in good hands. The lodge consists of only five chalets each decorated according to theme. The dining and pool area overlooks the bush. Everything from the facilities to the service to the food to the wine to the game drives was phenomenal. I've never experienced a game lodge in such style. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 five spacious suites are placed strategically along the small hill to provide maximum privacy and intimacy. All are equipped with king-sized beds, fireplace and relaxing private deck where you can unwind while listening to the birds sing. The honeymoon suites have their own private Jacuzzi for the ultimate distressing pleasure or sipping on a glass of sparkling wine. ... more less
