Forget Colonial-Style Safaris And Head to South Africa For a Modern Experience
December 10, 2019 Nicolas Shammas

Opened this past May, Cheetah Plains is the newest addition to the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve that borders Kruger National Park. Remarkably, it takes the safari to a whole new level of sophistication with a set up that comprises three unconventionally modern, even vaguely brutalist, exclusive use, four-suite villas. Each suite comes with a king-sized bed, private deck, lounge area, freestanding fireplace, double rain showers and a tub overlooking the surrounding bushland.

But its ace card is that, in an effort to protect that pristine scenery, the resort runs entirely off-grid using solar power. Moreover, all of their grey-water is recycled to lower consumption and the game drives are conducted in Land Cruiser safari vehicles that have been modified to run on solar-charged Tesla batteries.

The villas start at 6,000 USD a night, all inclusive.
