Activities

Game drives generally operate in the early mornings and late afternoons. Enjoy a crisp morning game drive with the beauty of the rising African sun, as well as an evening drive where mysterious nightlife can be viewed by a spotlight. 57 Waterberg also offers a site-seeing program designed to meet each client’s personal requirements, including viewing of nearby bushman paintings over 2,000 years old. By prior arrangement only.

Traditional food and world-class wines are a luxury to be enjoyed. Enjoy gourmet meals, exquisite sundowners, or a glass of world-class red wine from 57 Waterberg’s fine wine selection in the cozy wine cellar. There’s nothing to match a real South African barbecue in the boma, while listening to the sounds of the night under the spectacular milky way which only the bush can offer you. The lodge also offers a lounge, cocktail bar and dining room for guests’ enjoyment.

“A five star elegance with attentive staff”

The staff was heartwarming and very helpful. The meals were carefully thought through as I had special dietary requirements due to my allergies. I can’t forget the eggs benedict Lucas made for me the first morning, it was indeed the best I’ve had so far in my life. My room was always clean, however due to the thatched roof, I could sometimes find traces of grass in the bathroom and around the sink. Thank goodness for the attentive staff. They always remembered to close and lock my terrace doors whenever I leave them open. I tend to do that when I’m Africa and trust me, you don’t want any unwanted visitors from the baboons. The game drives were fun. The 4×4 car was packed with other guests. This was a new experience for me as I have only gone on game drives where I have the 4×4 and guide all to myself. It was nice to be around people who shares the same interests as me.

“Absolute perfection”

Fifty Seven Waterberg exceeded all of our expectations – everything there contributes to you having the best possible time. The facilities were beautiful, the attention to detail outstanding, and the infinity pool overlooking the bush was a highlight. Professional, friendly and accommodating staff, the service could not have been better. Incredible food and unforgettable game drives. We can’t wait to go back.

“Once in a lifetime experience!!!”

What an experience this was! We have enjoyed every single minute! The personnel is so dedicated and are on point the whole stay! Gabriel, the chef, goes all the way for the guests! He could work in a Michelin-star restaurant! Delicious! He even baked a glute-free cake for my sister’s birthday and they all sang for her! Heartwarming!! Josphat, the manager and ranger are on top of everything! We really fell in love with everybody and everything! The atmosphere among the people working there is so warm and happy, as a guest you feel that the moment you arrive at the Lodge

“Incredible!”

Thoroughly enjoyed 3 nights at Fifty Seven Waterberg and highly recommend a stay here. All the staff were superb but Simon the manager (and driver during our stay) deserves a special mention as he was fabulous and doggedly pursued cat sightings for us. The lodge is stunning and set up excellently. The room was huge and luxurious (the only slight oddity / negative was that we had twin rather than a double bed). Food was tasty and there’s no chance of going hungry. It was my first safari so other reserves would potentially have better sightings but personally, I thought Welgevoden was great and we saw 4 of the big 5 (didn’t see a leopard but did get some great cheetah sightings). Thought it was excellent value for money and would return.
