Welcome to Cheetah Paw Eco Lodge

We Provide More Than Wonderful Time – We Provide You The Best Of Africa!

Picture this…

You wake up in the morning with African birds chirping on your porch or a Hornbill knocking on your door.

You sip your morning coffee with zebras grazing outside your doorstep.

The sky is clear blue. And you can smell the crisp morning air in the African bush.

After a while, you go to the pool to relax while listening to singing African doves and watching giraffes drinking from the nearby waterhole.

In the evening, you take a glass a refreshing cocktail while watching the magnificent sun setting over the Drakensburg mountains.

For a moment, you think you’re dreaming.

But no – this paradise is real. And affordable. In fact, it costs only a small fraction of your holiday budget.

Sounds like the right place you want to stay on your next holiday to South Africa?

If so, you’re in the right place.

Whether you want to explore nature or simply need to have a break from stress and chill out, our place will give you the best of Africa.

Unlike a traditional hotel experience that leaves you feeling lost amongst a sea of guests, our team welcomes you “home”. Here at our cozy little exotic escape, you are family, and family is presented with no less than the best. and you will return home with unforgettable memories!

Our 5.0 rating with TripAdvisor and 9.2 rating with Booking.com are proof of our excellence.

These People Spent A Wonderful Time In Our Place – Here’s What They’re Saying…

Great Experience!

Obviously, Our Lodge Is Not For Everyone

If what you’re looking for is a big industrial hotel that gives you the luxurious five-star experience with staff in tuxedos, and a high-priced room that has ultra-premium facilities, our lodge is not the place to stay.

But if you mostly want an eco-friendly place that makes you feel so close to nature, with Drakensberg Mountains at the back, Africa wildlife almost everywhere you look, and the staff that treats you like family, you’d love to spend more than just a night in our place.

If you’re okay with just local African food cooked using authentic recipes of the local people – not a Michelin-star chef – we’ll make sure you have excellent breakfast, lunch, and dinner that you’ll never forget.

You don’t have to be an elite super-rich to have a dream holiday and wonderful time in Africa.

Just stay in our place, and we’ll show you more than a wonderful time. We’ll show you Africa at its best.

4 Things That Set Us Apart

  • We’ll treat you like our own family, not just a name on our guest list. Everyone gets individual attention from our staff. We’ll remember your name and the people who come with you. Whenever you are back to our place, you’ll immediately feel like you’re home.
  • An intimate and quiet atmosphere, like an eco-lodge should be. You’ll have quality time while you’re staying in our place. It’s very peaceful, warm, and cozy. A nice place for you who want to have a break from stress and chill out.
  • A magnificent view over the African bush with Drakensberg Mountains at the back. Make sure you don’t miss the sunset time, which will give you a surreal experience, unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
  • The best African food. That’s right. If you come here to experience the best of Africa, you don’t want to miss a chance to taste some of the best African food cooked by our chef.

What an amazing time we had at CHEETAH PAW ECO LODGE …

Barry and Tania made sure that we had an an excellent time from start to finish, and we were treated like kings and queens. Their service and hospitality are outstanding on every level, and the food is excellent. The main lodge has an excellent entertaining deck area to linger with a cocktail and watching the breathtaking sunsets.

The luxury tented rooms are five star quality and can be recommended at any time. The rooms overlook a watering hole for animals, so what is better than an early morning coffee, enjoyed on your room’s patio with a view of the wild animals, who come seeking water.

Book now and be assured of a wonderful getaway time we all need so much in today’s hectic life.
