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

Once the original, sprawling grey-stone manor house, and tucked alongside an 111-year old fig, Cheetah Ridge Lodge combines the allure of legacy with the trappings of African luxury. Overlooking a private watering-hole and surrounded by fenced-in lush gardens and stretches of special African veld beyond, solo travellers, couples, and groups can enjoy an authentic yet elegant bush experience.

Cheetah Ridge Lodge provides fully-catered accommodation, with meals enjoyed on the lawn or under the shade of the giant fig. The ten luxury suites are situated away from the lodge with private viewing decks and hanging egg chairs – the perfect point from which to look out over the bush, game-view, and bird-watch in undisturbed tranquility. There is also a beautiful family suite on the top floor of the main lodge with a private lounge and balcony, which sleeps up to six people and is ideal for families and groups.

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.
