    Unfortunately Cheetah Plains was a huge disappointment on so many levels. It was the most expensive lodge we stayed at and it was by far the worst value for money. Compared to other lodges it should be less than half the price. We feel completely...More

    I don't remember having a fridge in the room as all the lodges are close to the main bar and restaurant so easy to get things cold. However I am sure the staff at CP would be very accommodating to support anything you need.

    We offer a comprehensive range of alcoholic drinks, including both spirits and a well-chosen range of South African wines. From January 2017, drinks will be included in the rate so a price-list will be superfluous.
