Mvula House

South Africa
Sabi Sands

Relaxing on a deep sofa after a game drive, you might dive into contemplation of huge works by Gail Caitlin, Azael Langa, or Greatjoy Ndlovu, or simply enjoy the well-chosen collection of art books. From custom-designed furniture by Okha and ARRCC to Pichulik rope key rings, the interiors are curated with attention to the most thoughtful details and, of course, a collection of art. Of course, if you fall irrevocably in love say with one of Loyiso Mkhise's vibrant portraits brightening the cool neutrals of your suite lounge, all the artworks are available to buy, keeping the collection fresh The Tretchikoff may have recently sold, but an equally fascinating piece takes its place. You might not even notice the substantial solar farm that powers the lodge, but you will appreciate the whisper silence of the custom electric Land Cruisers with their Tesla batteries - an eco-innovation that transforms game drives birdsong, cicadas, the distant roars of big cats, no sound is lost to engine noise. Back at the lodge, the big cat viewing, as superb as you would expect in the Sabi Sand, is reflected in commissioned bronze cheetahs by Arend Eloff, and dynamic cheetah and lion paintings in Conor McCreedy's signature deep blues. Total immersion in art, nature, and eco-luxury with a sensual touch of glamour is the Cheetah Plains experience. The Cheetah Plains art collection is an ongoing and evolving project, with new works being commissioned or acquired all the time.
