Like the nature that surrounds him, there’s a restlessness to him, a need to improve, be better - be the best. The experience moves forward, adapting to an industry that changes frequently. Make no mistake, Cheetah Plains is a paragon of its type, of that there can be no doubt at all. Whilst there is a timelessness to the retreat’s offerings, it is also keen to remain at the cutting edge. Technology will inevitably become adopted should it fit with Japie’s vision of refinement. More services will be bought in to meet a guest need. It’s a pursuit to perfection, with each day inching the reserve forwards to the magical and the transcendent.
