Cheetah Ridge Map:
The Colonial style farm-house with its Boer War themed comfortable en-suite rooms and large old stone veranda provided the perfect backdrop to our game drives. We could not have asked for more attention, every request was met with an 'anything we can do to make your stay happy' attitude. Kirsty and Brad were star hosts, with a fantastic back-up team. Breakfasts under the trees, lovely light salad lunches outdoors, dinner indoors or in the Boma, added to by the staff impromptu entertainment of singing and dancing and the highlights of game drives under Brad's expert guidance. Perhaps a cherry on top was the visit to the cheetah sanctuary. Thanks for a fantastic break in a lovely environment with a great atmosphere.
