Cheetah Plains exclusive Plains Houses, home of the definitive exclusive-use luxury sustainable safari in South Africa’s most celebrated wildlife area, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Exclusively yours, the Plains Houses play host to your private safari experience of a lifetime.
This property sets new levels of luxury and style with 3 'exclusive use' houses, each containing 4 private suites, lounges, dining area and heated swimming pool as well as privately guided safaris throughout your stay.
Each of the exclusive-use Plains Houses at Cheetah Plains accommodates a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 8 guests per house, offering you and your safari companions the ultimate private safari experience in the splendid Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
Each house essentially takes the same form comprising two parts: the shared space and the accommodation. Here, your exclusive safari hideaway provides you and your party a private bush retreat unlike any other.
The shared space houses an expansive formal lounge, living room, sun deck, lap pool, loggia, fine wine gallery and dining room.
Adjacent, the accommodation comprises four graciously appointed free-standing Private Suites, two of which inter-lead.
A dedicated hospitality team consists of your intuitive, accomplished host, private chef, field guide and tracker.
The bespoke children’s safari program, Cheetah Cub Club, for children under 12 years old is wildly popular with our younger guests. Educational, engaging and fun, each child receives a backpack stuffed with exciting activities to enjoy on safari, with our compliments. Highly qualified, relatable field guides and trackers are eager to share their bush lore with young, inquisitive minds.
he best time of day to explore the bush is early morning and late afternoon. Our twice-daily game drives are led by our best-in-class safari guides and trackers and taken in our prototype Land Cruiser Electric safari vehicles, a game-changing innovation pioneered by Japie van Niekerk, owner of Cheetah Plains. This bold advance toward zero-emission game drives is what drives our sustainability safari experience at Cheetah Plains. An onboard bird book, binoculars and a professional level Nikon D850 camera fitted with a 200-500mm telephoto lens plus memory card are provided for guests’ enjoyment. Bush walks and village visits can be arranged and for the more active there is a small climate controlled gym.
