Here, the adage, ‘patience is a virtue’ certainly applies. It was only many years after South African owner, Japie van Niekerk, acquired Cheetah Plains Private Reserve that his vision for it would come to fruition.

That is, for Cheetah Plains to become the home of the definitive luxury concept safari in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and indeed, the world.

By design, our concept safari property embraces our splendid natural setting in the most original, elegant way.

Every aspect reflects Japie’s personal style and preferences beautifully. Finally, over a decade after acquiring Cheetah Plains, his dream of transforming this private piece of Africa is realised.

Our world-class, proudly South African hospitality team are ready and waiting to welcome you. Feel at home at Cheetah Plains, your private African safari escape.
