Unrivalled Safaris in the Heart of the African Bush


Cheetah Plains Private Reserve lies adjacent to the Kruger National Park, in the northwest corner of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. There are no fences between the two reserves, allowing game to move freely between the two areas. Cheetah Plains has on its one boundary the Kruger National Park and on the other Mala Mala - perfect neighbours!  You are also guaranteed exclusivity – our private concession traversing rights dictate that only two commercial game vehicles at a time can traverse the individual areas, exclusivity at game sightings is the norm at Cheetah Plains.



The intimate Cheetah Plains lodge offers friendly service with comfortable safari style lodge accommodation, along with our hospitality and welcoming staff, we strive to ensure a safari experience to be remembered. Join us and let the African bush embrace you!
