Shortly before sunrise you are awakened with coffee and rusks and as the sun rises you set off on a morning game drive. After breakfast is done on the open fire, your mid morning activities include a bush walk or a cultural drive to the local village. During the bush walk your FGASA qualified guide will give you a first hand introduction to the African Bush.
Safari Activities at Cheetah Plains
A cultural visit to the local communities of Utha and Dixie, allows guests the opportunity to see how the local indigenous people live - a way of life that has changed little since time immemorial.
Meet the headman or visit the schools. Guests are always deeply touched by the exuberant spirit of these community-minded people.
By midday you will be enjoying a quiet lunch with an opportunity to relax in the lush gardens or around the pool. Perhaps take a siesta, because come late afternoon, after tea you will be off for an evening game drive. Stop for a sundowner drink lit by the magnificent African sunset. The night game drives with spotlight afford the possibility of finding some of the more elusive nocturnal animals such as the awesome leopard or the cute bushbaby. At the end your night drive, a warm crackling fire and a sumptuous meal awaits you at Cheetah Plains.
To sit around a blazing fire under the endless African night sky - the brilliant Milky Way intense in the unpolluted skies - is to evoke ancient memories of mankind's ancestors who evolved in this magnificent African savanna all those million years ago.
