Historical charm and distinct African luxury in the founder of Nambiti’s lodge

Once the original, sprawling grey-stone manor house, Cheetah Ridge Lodge is tucked alongside a 113-year old fig tree, where the allure of legacy is combined with warm African hospitality. With 10 luxury suites overlooking a private watering-hole, as well as an additional watering-hole and exclusive game hide on the property, the lodge offers guests an authentic, yet elegant bush experience, designed for solo travellers, couples and groups.

A beautiful family suite is also available on the top floor of the main lodge, with a private lounge and balcony overlooking the lodge grounds, which can sleep up to six people. Cheetah Ridge Lodge provides fully-catered accommodation, with meals enjoyed on the lawn, in a boma, or under the shade of the giant fig tree during warmer months, or in the main lodge dining room adjoining the bar in winter.

At Cheetah Ridge Lodge the aim is to offer experiences which will ignite your inner explorer and satisfy every wildlife enthusiast.

5 of us stayed in the lodges around the watering hole. Great staff - Louise was lovely and very welcoming. Our game driver was Jonathan and what a mind for information. He looked after us really well, answering whatever stupid question was thrown at him.

The beds were comfortable with adequate space to move around. Sightings around the dam located at front windows in the unit, made it a pleasant environment to live in. The food was excellent and plentiful, overall a very pleasant experience.
