Cheetah Plains is newly renovated lodge located within the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve which borders with the world-renowned Kruger National Park. The Sabi Sands is well-known for its fantastic big cat sightings and up-close encounters with Africa's famous Big Five.


  • Exclusive-use lodge offering guests the ultimate luxury and privacy
  • Three exclusive-use, four-bedroom villas are sleek and modern, furnished with bold artwork
  • Unrivaled game viewing opportunities & almost-guaranteed Big Five sightings

You should know

  • Children of all ages are welcome, subject to the number of people travelling together.
  • Children are welcome on game drives of age appropriate duration, at the discretion of the field guide.

The detail

Cheetah Plains boasts three exclusive-use, designer Bush Houses that each feature four private suites with king-size beds, en-suite bathrooms with double rain showers and a bathtub overlooking the bushveld, dressing rooms, lounge, minibar, tea & coffee making facilities, and private deck with a daybed.

Each Bush House can accommodate a maximum of eight guests and includes two comfortable lounges, a fully-equipped kitchen, dining area, an outdoor boma, wine cellar, a heated swimming pool, and a private viewing deck with a daybed. The Bush Houses are serviced by a private chef, butler, and professional guide for the duration of your stay. Guests staying at Cheetah Plains have access to a central gym as well as a private spa therapist.

After your afternoon tea, you’ll be taken on the first of your exhilarating twice-daily game drives. Go on a personalized journey with your professional field guide to learn and see things you never thought possible.

Setting out into the bushveld in the late afternoon is the ideal time to spot the predators that prowl the Sabi Sand. Leopard and lion emerge in the early evening to drink water or rest before the night’s hunt.

As part of the concession rights, only two safari vehicles are allowed in the shared areas of the reserve at any given time. You're guaranteed exclusivity as you go on safari through Cheetah Plains and the surrounding area.

The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife - 145 mammal species, 110 reptiles, and 500 bird species. Guests can look forward to sightings of leopard, lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, hyena and various antelope. The reserve also offers sanctuary to a number of endangered animals such as wild dogs, honey badgers and ground hornbills.

Cheetah Plains is ideal for families or small groups looking for an exclusive luxury safari experience.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
