Welcome to Cheetah Paw Eco Lodge

Cheetah Paw Eco Lodge offers luxury tented accommodation in the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve, which is conveniently located close to Hoedspruit, South Africa, and the gateway to the Kruger National Park. Cheetah Paw Eco Lodge is a hidden gem in the pristine African bush, a place where you can enjoy a wonderful wildlife experience and unwind from the daily life.

From the moment you enter the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve your game viewing experience begins. As you round the corner a giraffe family crosses the road right in front of you or a herd of buffalo greet you warily. This isn’t a zoo, the animals are completely wild and free to roam, but you’re sure to get real close up viewing experiences.  At Cheetah Paw often the animals walk right by your tented chalet on their way to the waterhole. Occasionally you’ll have to pause on the sidewalk to give way to a zebra, a wildebeest or an impala.

After a day in the sun, take a dip in the outdoor pool or sip on a Sundowner drink on the deck, before dining on traditional South African dishes and international cuisine. There’s a three-course set menu that al fresco diners can tuck into at the Boma (traditional hut), while soaking up views of the African wilderness stretching for miles before them.  A warm shower under the African stars is a perfect way to end the day...

"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."
