Cheetah Plains solar power

We’re excited to see more safari operators getting serious about sustainable energy and leaving lighter footprints. Luxury lodge Cheetah Plains, in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, is setting a great example. Off-grid suppliers have implemented an environmentally friendly, independent renewable energy supply for the property.  

With 2 920 hours of sunshine per year, Cheetah Plains Lodge is now producing 100% green energy from the sun, generated with solar panels and stored in the batteries. With the inclusion of storage, renewable utilisation is near 100%.  In addition to the new and quiet energy supply, the lodge uses custom-engineered electric vehicles for its safaris. A separate greywater recycling system, as well as a sewage treatment plant, have been installed on the property to minimize water consumption and environmental impact.
