  • Exclusive-Use Bush Houses
  • Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve
  • Exceptional Big Five viewing
  • Ultra luxurious & highly popular

The newly rebuilt Cheetah Plains is an exclusive ultra-modern setting, blending seamlessly into the natural backdrop of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

Cheetah Plains provides a luxury safari experience like no other.  Dreamier and more opulent than one could ever imagine a safari to be, one visit to Cheetah Plains just won’t be enough.

Featuring 3 exclusive-use, contemporary bush homes for 4 – 8 guests, each luxury retreat boasts state of the art features and luxury elements for discerned guests to indulge in.

Offering personalized game-viewing, each home is accompanied with a private game viewing vehicle & designated field guide for the duration of your stay.  Two daily game drives offer the opportunity to be awed by Africa’s Big Five at the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park.

Fittingly, the 3 luxury homes are named after 2 of Sabi Sand’s legendary leopards, and a dominant lion coalition: “Mvula”, “Karula” and “Mapogo”.

Cheetah plains offers a truly exceptional luxury safari experience from the innovative architectural design to culinary details with private chef catering.  This is an immersion into the heart of the African bush that will be etched in each guest’s memory forever.

The abundance in water sources for animals to drink has resulted in the area teaming with antelope, zebra, giraffe, hyena, leopard, lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo and cheetah.  

    A large variety of flora, fish, amphibians and over 110 reptiles also call the reserve home.  Five hundred bird species make it a bird lovers paradise and a number of endangered species also roam the reserve making for magical encounters when getting a rare glimpse of Honey Badgers, Ground Hornbills and Wild Dogs.
