Our Lodge

At Cheetah Plains Private Game Reserve, expect all five senses to be awakened by your African bushveld experience – bush buck and nyala roam freely among the chalets. You might hear the sound of lion, hippo, hyena, jackal and more calling out across the bushveld at night.

Cheetah Plains is one of the oldest bush camps in the Sabi Sand. Our emphasis is on offering guests traditional Safari values of comfortable accommodation, combined with great food, prepared around the campfire.

Excellent game viewing on 8 500 ha and friendly attentive staff will round off your safari. Cheetah Plains has only eight rooms & a Bush Cottage which ensures an exclusive Safari experience.

Main Lodge

The main lodge is a common area where our guests are invited to put their feet up, reconnect with family and friends, have a cocktail or cup of coffee and simply relax while surrounded by the sights and sounds of the African bushveld.

The swimming pool is just a footstep or two away – it’s hard to resist the invitation to take a dip and cool down – and from here you can gaze across the dam, or from the main lounge area, look towards the waterhole where animals and birds come to drink.
