Situated in the southern section of the Nambiti Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu Natal, Cheetah Ridge Luxury Safari Lodge is an unrivalled bush retreat, offering fully-catered, accommodation in 10 luxury suites, as well as a sumptuously-appointed family suite which sleeps up to six people.

Overlooking a private watering-hole, each free-standing suite allows guests the opportunity to observe a vast array of congregating African wildlife from the privacy of their personal viewing deck.

Whether you’re enjoying al fresco dining under the stars beneath an 111-year-old Natal Fig tree, experiencing a private bush dinner in a secluded corner of the reserve, or indulging in a rejuvenating spa treatment at our on-site spa, Cheetah Ridge Lodge is the ultimate “must visit” safari destination.

Situated away from the lodge, our 10 king luxury suites overlooks a private watering-hole, enabling guests to observe a vast array of African wildlife from the privacy of their personal viewing deck.

Serviced daily and sumptuously decorated, each free-standing suite is equipped with a bath, shower, and en-suite toilet, with a pod-hanging chair to take in the unfolding majesty of the scenes before you. Air-conditioning and ceiling fans for balmy summer evenings, with a Bosca Fireplace and Nespresso coffee machine for chilly nights, complete the picture to ensure a luxurious, yet homely, stay.
