Having your own vehicle, guide and tracker means you have flexibility, however the best time to spot wildlife is in the early morning. Set out to look for wildlife including the Big 5 (Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino and Buffalo).
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 await you at Cheetah Plains.
