We stayed here in tandem with a visit to the Anne Van-Dyke centre. It was a fab location and our room was both fun and functional. Food was great and the Manageress and her team were outstanding. Everyone here was aligned to the aims of the Anne Van-Dyke centre and it felt like staying with family. A huge thumbs up...

Lovely place and an unique experience. I was travelling with my husband and my two daughters (10 and 13) and we just love it. We felt like we were at our grandma´s house. The staff was excellent and, after dinner, we have the entire house just for us, playing games in front ot the fireplace and seeing Pretoria lights at...

The De Wildt Cheetah Lodge is a real treat, but what makes it really special is the owner, Eloise. Without her our stay would have been wonderful; with her, it was unforgettable. She brings an energy, attentiveness, and care that you just do not get at other establishments. The Lodge itself is lovely, situated on the side of the mountain,...

My friends and I stayed here for one night before visiting the Anna van Dik Centre. Eloise, the manager, is a wonderful host, she is very friendly and accommodating. The evening meal she made for us was really delicious. Eloise, knowing that we are Italian, was so kind to prepare for us ‘the lasagne’ which were really tasty. The breakfast...

We held a business year end lunch here to complement a visit to the adjacent Ann van Dyk Cheetah centre. It was a good combination. The food was a good selection of tastily prepared and well presented buffet-style dishes, complimented by efficient and polite waitresses. The view over the plains behold Brits was very pleasing. The gardens too are lovely...

Not sure what to expect we booked a night here before our Cheetah interaction in the morning. We were so pleasantly surprised at the whole experience. Eloise and her staff were so friendly and helpful…I could have spent hours hearing about her life and experiences. Wish we had had another night to enjoy the beautiful grounds. Eloise's meals were some...

We stayed here for one night, after visiting The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre.

After dinner, we pulled our chairs in front of the...

We stayed here for one night mostly because we wanted to see The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre. We were greeted by Eloise and she showed us around. The lodge is very nicely decorated and has plenty of space in and outdoors. At the time we were the only ones there so we really enjoyed the peace. The room itself...

Recently, my son, grandson and I visited the Hartbeespoort area in the Republic of South Africa. Our stay, there, was outstanding.

Elouise is truly a Cordon Bleu as...
