Fresh and chipper, the restyled Cheetah Plains sports a lively touch of class, and continues to offer one of those reassuringly traditional safaris where it’s all about the bush and it’s magic. Well, almost all about the bush …

The lodge comes alive with splashes of colour adding mod sparkle to an African theme.  These are some of the wonder-places in the camp: the outdoor lounging space that looks out over a waterhole, the chatty fireside space where you lap up good meals and swap safari yarns, and the rooms themselves – peaceful cocoons of privacy that are not needlessly over-adorned. There are six standard rooms and two luxury rooms – the luxury rooms are a bit bigger and have outdoor showers in addition to en-suite bathrooms.

At Cheetah Plains the safari takes centre stage. With the famous Sabi Sand to explore, there are mega sightings of big game, including leopards.

All in all, a big safari at a small, swish lodge that takes very good care of its guests. Children of all ages are welcome.
