All over the news in the Netherlands. They ripped off a lot of people. Even a family who paid 16000 euro's and didn't got there money back. Please be warned! Don't book!!!!! They say there are financial problems but keep on advertising.

We expected more of this place, because it is run by Dutch people. The place, room, the swimming pool everything is out dated and needs a face lift. We had bedcovers with holes in it. The price of a gamedrive with 3 persons in Kruger Park is 550 rand that is about €35 and they offer a game drive for...

I spent two nights here catching up with a friend and really enjoyed myself. Sure it was inexpensive, and as I had no illusions of grandeur, I loved it. The owners haven't been there that long and have a bit of work to do, but they were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Anyone who has been to and done research on...

My wife has never been to the Kruger Park, so we decided to go in at one of the southern gates and come out at Orpen Gate. We chose the Cheetah Inn due to its proximity to the gate which would allow us more time in the park. Thankfully we only booked one night. Our room was shocking - a...

Very nice place! The food is very good, amazing people around you, nice lay out of the building, the pool, the braai area and the rooms. The hosts are very kind and always ready to help and have a chat. Very good value for your money. I would visit again any time.

Its a budget place, fair enough but be aware that you are going to be ripped off once you there! After complaining about the price of dinner R150 (was maybe worth R70 at the most), I was told that he does not cater for South Africans, that I should change my attitude because R150 equals Euro12 so his Dutch guests...

After having traveled 3 weeks through SA we spent 1 night in Cheetah Inn. We have seen many positive reviews so we decided to stay there on our way from KNP to Jo'burg.

This was a last minute booking for our group of 20.

The facility was clean enough,...

Good morning, Thank you for your review. We regret the fact that in your opinion, some things were missing at Cheetah Inn. As this guest indicated it was a last minute booking. The group didn´t make the booking, but their travel agent. With the travel agent we discussed the room layout, breakfasts, dinners etc. The agent has been informed what...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated near Hoedspruit in the heart of the Limpopo Lowveld, we are the nearest hotel to the Kruger National Park’s Orpen Gate, a mere 50km via a tar road on a secure gated property. We are also surrounded by Big Five Game Reserves such as Kapama, Thornybush and Timbavati.Our 21 airy rooms and thatched rondawels are fully en-suite (bath, shower, basin and toilet) and are surrounded by lush gardens with beautiful indigenous bushveld trees. The Cheetah Inn main hotel has seven rooms and a suite consisting of two 2-bedded rooms. There are 13 rondawels (African thatched chalets). All our rooms are fitted with aircon and overhead fans and insect-proof screens.During the heat of the day, our large sparkling swimming pool, set against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountain Range, provides the ideal refuge to laze away the hours. The Cheetah Inn boasts its very own airstrip (co-ordinates 24 29 52 South ; 31 05 14 East) - you can be at our doorstep within an hour of Gauteng's airports. Game-viewing activities include game drives on open Gameviewers; Bush Walks and Night Drives at nearby game reserves. Dawn flights on hot air balloons sometimes depart from the Cheetah Inn depending on wind conditions. And we can also accommodate functions for that special occasion you want to celebrate. ... more   less
