Cheetah Ridge Bush Lodge is situated in the Malaria free , big 5 Nambiti Game Reserve

Enjoy our affordable self-catering accommodation in the Cheetah Ridge Bush Lodge. Set apart from the Lodge, the Bush Lodge is a fantastic family get away destination and can accommodate 10 people comfortably in 5 unique spacious bedrooms one of which is an en-suite bathroom. The private boma is the perfect setting for family or friends to gather around the fire to chat about the days happenings while enjoying a traditional South African braai. The open garden allows guests the opportunity to do some mid-morning bird-watching while keeping a watchful eye for any passing wildlife. Dinner’s may be served in the dining room, on the veranda or perhaps enjoy a traditional braai in the boma.

Guests at Cheetah Ridge Bush Lodge also have full use of the facilities at the main lodge (Spa, tennis court, swimming pool, bar, and they are able to pre book meals at the main lodge if they do not wish to cook at the unit.)

There are 2 bathrooms situated in the house, one of which has a shower and the other a bath as well as toilets. The farm-style kitchen and scullery  are fully equipped with all the essentials, the perfect opportunity for you to tap into your inner chef. The Bush Lodge caters for all seasons, in the warm summer months why not cool off with a quick dip in your own private swimming pool and for the chillier winter months our guests can curl up in front of the fireplace with a good bottle of red wine and a book to warm up.

Cheetah Ridge is a child-friendly lodge, however please note:

Children from 2 years old (full 24 month) are welcome to join us on our game drives, children under the age of 2 are not permitted to go on drives.  These drives may not be allowed within 50 metres of a Big 5 sighting, however this is at the discretion of the ranger at the time of the sighting.  Smaller children must remain quiet on drives so as not to inconvenience other guests and other game drives.

Unruly behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in the game drive returning to the lodge and then continuing without these children and their parents

The game drive vehicle can only accommodate a maximum of 10 people per drive and will depart once a day, either for a morning or afternoon game drive at the choice of guests.

Should guests wish to book any additional game drives, please be advised that we require a minimum of 4 guests in order to send a game drive vehicle out.

The rate charged is R 350.00 per person per drive for 4 guests and more.

Should there be less than 4 guests requiring additional game drives a rate of R 1,400.00 per drive is applicable.
