Welcome to Africa’s most exclusive Safari property.

During my visit to Cheetah Plains earlier this year I had the pure pleasure of chatting with Manager Kobus de Kock about a Safari lodge like no other.

{and yes, the Rothschild Safaris girls might not have any need for an aiming aid but we see and appreciate you Philippe Starck loo 🙌🏻 🚽}

Portuguese is spoken in a number of African countries and is the official language in six African states: Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde, São Tomé and Príncipe and Equatorial Guinea. There are Portuguese-speaking communities in most countries of Southern Africa, a mixture of Portuguese settlers and Angolans and Mozambicans who left their countries during the civil wars. A rough estimate has it that there are about 14 million people who use Portuguese as their sole mother tongue across Africa. Depending on the criteria applied, the number might be considerably higher since many Africans speak Portuguese as a second language, especially in countries like Angola and Mozambique, where Portuguese is an official language, but also in countries like South Africa and Senegal, thanks to migrants coming from Portuguese speaking countries.
