My stay at 57 Waterberg was amazing. The food was better than some 5 star restaurants. Ephriam, our game driver, was the best. He made sure our drives were relaxing and enjoyable. I would also recommend a scheduling a massage with Witness.

Good but room for improvement
We went here for my boyfriend's birthday and the villa is just stunning, very secluded, in the middle of nature has a private heated pool. The pool area at the villa does need some umbrellas for shade as it was super hot and unusable. The meals were great, I was very happy that they catered for vegan options. I'm just not a fan of artichokes and leeks so didn't enjoy those as much but still grateful that they chef catered for my needs. The game drives were great, we had really great sightings in the two days we spent there, the snacks on the game drive could be improved for vegans though. I was also quite disappointed that we couldn't get a couple's massages done even though I requested them more than 2 months in advance. They could have told me and I would have booked else where. When asked about it, staff were quite rude and unprofessional as the manager said there's nothing he can do as the other lady didn't come to work. As we walked away, I heard him tell the staff that he's not going to get another lady in just got one couple. I think that could have been handled professionally. Anyway, that kinda rubbed me the wrong way especially since I've been planning this for a while. I was quite grateful for the complimentary birthday cake and the chef even made it vegan which I didn't request, really really appreciated that. Thank you chef!

Perfect first safari experience!
My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights at the end of March to finish off what had been an amazing trip to Cape Town. We literally do not have a single complaint, all food was amazing from breakfast, lunch and dinner with two different starter and main course chefs and a dessert chef providing exceptional 5star food. A birthday cake and song was kindly given as a surprise for my birthday, as embarrassed as I may have been 😳 General service could also not have been better with constant attention given to ensure a perfect stay. The location is peaceful and provides a great view over the lodge’s watering hole which if lucky has some great game viewing, and the surrounding reserve. Our lodge “Zebra 1” was consistently spotless with comfy bedding, and all the amenities and more, and some occasional lion roars from outside to make it extra special. Both guides we had: Josphat and Ifram (apologies if this is incorrectly spelt) were both exceptional at spotting and getting close viewing of the desired “Big Five” as well as some other beautiful wildlife and fauna. Both were incredibly interesting and gave a great insight into the animals and everything about the reserve. The perfect place to top off an amazing 2 week stay in South Africa and
