Our 2 night stay in 57 Waterberg was simply amazing.
They were super attentive to us, from prior to our arrival, asking us if we had food restriction or some preference, going by the time of our arrival, receiving us with sparkling wine and welcome drink and all the careful detail with us during the stay.
As for the staff we also only get compliments, our safari driver (Josphat) was the most friendly person, knew details about all the animals we asked and he tried his best so we could see all the animals. The safari car was also comfortable, they had nice and warm ponchos for the game drives to keep us warm because the wind was sooo cold during early morning and in the early evening.
The chefs (Daniel and Lucas) were also very good at all meals that we were served, super delicious. Joseph and Pete were also very good to us, they always welcomed us back from the safaris and catered all our needs with a big smile on their face. Upon returning to our room after dinner the room was already nicely warmed.
As for the infrastructure of the place was also something that surprised us positively. Excellent rooms, large, quiet, with privacy and very comfortable. From our balcony we saw several animals that walked around, but at no moment did we feel insecure.
Very cozy common areas, a lovely pool with infinity edge views. You feel part of nature in this place.
It is certainly a place that we would recommend to anyone who asks us for recomendations to do a safari.
