  • Facilities
Witwater is a five-star lodge in the magnificent malaria-free Waterberg. Set on the banks of the lush Phalala River with its white waters, from where Witwater gets its name. Imposing elegance. And a cordiality of welcome that borrows its warmth from the true source of light and day. Gracefulness that supersedes accepted norms of refined comfort and style. Long after you have left, you will still recall the warm welcome and hospitality extended to you during your stay. An aura of elegance and sophistication pervades the comfortable lounge and other facilities at the main lodge.

Witwater Private Game Reserve is the ideal “5 Star” venue for that small, intimate wedding in an environment where sophistication, Ultimate luxury and gracious living prevails in a unique outdoor African atmosphere. (Maximum 50 Pax Sharing) As the Lodge prides itself in the personal attention we are confident that whatever your need for this very special occasion we will go out of our way to make it the most enjoyable and memorable moment for you. Various options of specially prepared venues are available for the ceremony and the reception, like our silver service restaurant, in our lapa surrounded by fires and candles, under the African Sky or our own Spa, with most breathtaking views of the Waterberg.

When it comes to food, our Executive Chefs prepare selected meals so as to meet your every desire. For the more sophisticated we offer direct flights of approximately 40 minutes into our private airstrip where a special open game drive vehicle will be ready to take you to the lodge for a very special pampering session.

We stayed for 2 nights at the lodge during June 2014. The accommodation is excellent and the service is very good. The lodge is a reasonable drive from Johannesburg and accessible in a sedan. Game drives were great and you can also book a guided walk to see bushmen paintings complemented with a brilliant view over the reserve and some excellent photo opportunities. Overall 11/10

A great place to get away from it all. Pity our stay was so short. Only issue was the road getting there, which was barely manageable in our Audi A4.

I know my wife would also post a review but it would just be to top mine. We have travelled the world and spent many nights in 5 star accommodation. I would rate Witwater Safari Lodge and Spa tops in South Africa and within the top 10 in the world (compared with the hotels we were in with a 5 star rating)The management,staff and chefs were in a class of there own. The rooms topped those of The Palace at Sun City. It was really the little things!!! Warm water bottles on the game drives, the blankets at the breakfast, the little wild flowers on our plates, the spa, the constant smiling of the staff and of course the high tea. Elegance in the wild! 6 star rating! Thank you management and staff Dr. Henk Buytendorp and family.
