Witwater Safari & Spa - Rates from ZAR 700

Welcome to Witwater Safari Lodge and Spa !
Intimately settled on the banks of the evergreen Phalala River in the Malaria free Waterberg, Witwater Safari Lodge and Spa Facilitates relaxation in the breathtaking surroundings. Dining in, silver service gourmet style; or out in the sunsets glow and candle light. Decor, natures original, the menu African barbeque stretching far into the night. Then Settle into your own luxury tented suite, while refined Rhodesian teak decks de-stressed the souls of your feet even further before you settle in your own special snug resting place, while the Phalala River plays its calming magic flute through the African night. Wake up to the surrounds of the majestic Waterberg Mountains, before going out to explore the bush and meet with the abundance of game and birdlife. Thick Skinned rhino squint every move, while buffalo stare you down. Graceful Giraffe frame the trees and nearby impala playing around while keeping a sharp eye out for Cheetah. Then lose yourself again in a brunch prepared for the kings that grace the breakfast deck, before it all starts again...
