    The service at Fifty Seven Waterberg was impeccable to say the least. From the moment you are welcomed with hot towels and friendly faces to when you go to your huge, luxurious and cozy chalet, your every need is tended to.

    The location is perfect, far away from the noise of the city and the views are magnificent. To add to the fact that Fifty Seven Waterberg is absolutely beautiful, the staff are really what contributed to a fantastic stay. Every staff member ensured our needs were met and that we were happy with the service we were receiving.

    Josphat is the best guide I have come across and the knowledge he possesses is unbelievable. He understands nature in a way I have never experienced and taught us so much while on the game drives.

    This was a weekend I will never forget all thanks to the team at Fifty Seven Waterberg and the pure beauty of this establishment.

    Friendly warm service. Josephat was very knowledgeable about the bush and an excellent guide. The food was lovely, thanks Gabriel. We'll definitely be back.
    Location was great. Loved the nespresso in the room.

    Room Tip: Three hours from Johannesburg - door to door.

    My mum and I went up to 57 Waterberg for a special mum/daughter bush break #makingmemories in June this year. Simon and his team were super hospitable and saw to our every need. From the welcoming line-up song at the front door with all of the staff in attendance, to the warm face cloths served on a tray each time you arrived back from game drive. A happy crew of staff who make every effort! The lodge itself is beautifully appointed and luxurious, which for me is key to comfort and enjoyment. Mum and I shared a honeymoon suite and so we also had the additional benefit of a jacuzzi on the deck which we lazed around in whilst the warthog strolled by towards the watering hole. Thanks 57 Waterberg team for a memorable break!

    Room Tip: All of the rooms are very well appointed. Only two have jacuzzi's

    The staff was just amazing: very friendly, helpful and professional. The five houses very stylish and luxurious. I was in the game lodge at the end of may - perfect weather conditions with little guests.

    Put this one on your Bucket list as on of the best Big 5 Lodges within 2,5hrs drive from Gauteng. The place is beautiful, the food is excellent and the scenery's fantastic. The staff is also well trained with everything....food, game trips, birds etc
