INSPIRED SAFARI DRIVES
A PERSONAL JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY AMID AN IDYLLIC BUSHVELD LANDSCAPE
The best time of day to explore the bush is in the early morning and late afternoon. Our twice-daily game drives are led by our expert safari guide and tracker teams and taken in our Electric Land Cruiser Safari Vehicles. This bold advance toward zero-emission game viewing is what drives our sustainable safari experience at Cheetah Plains.
A PROFOUND APPRECIATION OF ONE’S PLACE WITHIN THE ECOSYSTEM
For the most immersive safari experience, we invite our guests to embark on guided, interpretive bush walks. Accompanied by our certified and experienced walking-trails field guide, the opportunity to explore certain parts of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve on foot, is one not to be missed.
The duration of walks are easily customised to your requirements, taking number of guests, fitness levels, ages, weather conditions and your preferred game drive schedules into account. There is no more tangible way than this to surround yourself with nature.
SAFARI-STYLE SOUL FOOD
Dining al fresco, out in the wide-open peace and tranquility of the prolific bushveld expanse, is one of our most popular safari experiences at Cheetah Plains and we love to treat our guests to this special dining experience during their stay with us.
Brunch in the bush after your morning game drive is our version of fine dining, with fresh locally sourced produce as our preference.
AN INVIGORATING WELLNESS EXPERIENCE
The restorative quality of your safari is luxuriously enhanced by personal pampering. We invite you to enjoy a selection of our touch therapies and beauty treatments, in the privacy and comfort of your bush suite.
With Africology as our wellness amenity brand partner, your private spa therapist expertly imparts the healing, restorative properties of select African botanicals, offering guests an immersive, calming wellness experience.
MODERN EQUIPMENT FOR YOUR TRAINING PLEASURE
Sporting beautiful views out over our rolling lawns and Tamboti grove beyond, the climate-controlled gym is fitted with a variety of high-quality, professional fitness equipment, in partnership with Technogym.
A short stroll from your villa or bush suite, the communal-use gym facility at Cheetah Plains is a tranquil environment for weight training sessions, cardio work-outs or yoga, stretching and core training.
EXPERIENCE LOCAL SHANGAAN CULTURE
Visit the nearby village of Utah, where many of our Cheetah Plains staff live with their families. A village trip also affords guests the opportunity to experience the ways in which Cheetah Plains passionately contributes to transformation in this area, including our work with the Lezagwa Utah Creche.
Your guided visit will introduce you to some local traditions and customs, with the aim of leaving guests with a deeper understanding of South Africa as a beautifully diverse, creative and hopeful nation.
AN INDIVIDUALISTIC APPROACH TO FAMILY SAFARIS
We love families and children of all ages are most welcome at Cheetah Plains. Our highly qualified, relatable field guides and trackers are eager to share their bush lore with young, inquisitive minds. Bush bumbles (game drives of age appropriate duration) and interpretive walks in our indigenous gardens facilitate a child’s connection with Africa’s wilderness and love of nature.
Our villas have ideal child-friendly features such as interleading bush suites and entertainment lounges with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, a games selection and Netflix.
