Unique Fact

Cheetah Plains' twice-daily game drives are taken in their innovative Land Cruiser Electric Safari Vehicles. This bold advance toward zero-emission game viewing is what drives their sustainable safari experience.


The Cheetah Plains hospitality and safari experiences are operated through clean energy solutions. All guest accommodations (Villas and Private Guest Bush Suites) are entirely off-grid, harnessing only the power of solar to provide a reliable, renewable energy source.

Cheetah Plains has a design unlike any other safari lodge in the Sabi Sands Nature Reserve. The three exclusive-use, four-bedroom villas are sleek and modern, furnished with bold artwork by South Africa’s most famous artists. The ace card is a sexy new fleet of electric safari vehicles.
