Situated near Hoedspruit in the heart of the Limpopo Lowveld, we are the nearest hotel to the Kruger National Park’s Orpen Gate, a mere 50km via a tar road on a secure gated property. We are also surrounded by More Big Five Game Reserves such as Kapama, Thornybush and Timbavati.Our 21 airy rooms and thatched rondawels are fully en-suite (bath, shower, basin and toilet) and are surrounded by lush gardens with beautiful indigenous bushveld trees. The Cheetah Inn main hotel has seven rooms and a suite consisting of two 2-bedded rooms. There are 13 rondawels (African thatched chalets). All our rooms are fitted with aircon and overhead fans and insect-proof screens.During the heat of the day, our large sparkling swimming pool, set against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountain Range, provides the ideal refuge to laze away the hours. The Cheetah Inn boasts its very own airstrip (co-ordinates 24 29 52 South ; 31 05 14 East) - you can be at our doorstep within an hour of Gauteng's airports. Game-viewing activities include game drives on open Gameviewers; Bush Walks and Night Drives at nearby game reserves. Dawn flights on hot air balloons sometimes depart from the Cheetah Inn depending on wind conditions. And we can also accommodate functions for that special occasion you want to celebrate. Less
