About Waterberg Cottages

Relax with the family in an historic thatched cottage set in beautiful, child-friendly gardens, alive with over 100 species of birds. Laze beside our large heated pool while the children play on the Adventure Village. Take a trip to see our family of lively hippo emerge as the afternoon light fades, and round off the day with a braai, as the sun sets over the Bushveld.

At Windsong Cottages we extend a warm welcome to families. Having three small children ourselves we understand the needs and concerns of families, and aim to provide a relaxing, fun, child-friendly environment. Our offspring always enjoy the chance to meet new playmates.

My friends and I absolutely loved our stay at Waterberg Cottages! We stayed in Bushwillow. It was lovely and comfortable. The view from our front porch was breathtaking! The owners and all of those who worked at Waterberg Cottages were friendly and kind. We participated in the Bush Drive, Star Gazing, and Hippo Drive. All were fabulous! We saw so many different animals. I will be returning to South Africa in October and I will once again stay at Waterberg Cottages. I can't wait to return!

Verified reviewexcellent

We decided to visit Waterberg Cottages after our family had visited in 2010 and had a marvellous time. We were definitely not disappointed. From the moment we arrived, jet lagged on a sunny Sunday morning to the day we left, the experience was unforgettable. As well as the delightful Calcott family, who made us feel part of their family, all the people who worked as part of the team made us most welcome. Every day someone checked up on us to see if everything was ok and helped us to plan our busy itinerary for the 10 days. The cottage was beautifully designed, extremely comfortable and well- equipped with lovely views across the veldt It was cleaned daily at a time to suit us. Various trips were organised for us including a lovely evening looking for hippos with drinks and snacks, and a memorable trip to Lapalala Nature Reserve with a delicious picnic and a fascinating guided tour which included rock art, wildlife and wild flora. Near to the cottages was a lovely craft shop where we bought beaded and leather gifts to take home. It was such a successful holiday that we plan to return to Waterberg Cottages next year.
