The Glasgow squad trained in Johannesburg before making the transfer for tonight's game at the Toyota Stadium.
Scrum-half Ali Price told The Scotsman: "The weather has been really good, there have been a couple of rain showers but, when we've been outside during the day, it has been mid to high 20s, pretty sunny, so it has been a really good experience so far. Training has been good fun and I think everyone is looking forward to the game on Friday.
"They've (The Cheetahs) obviously hit their straps recently with three good wins on the trot. They are a big physical pack, love their set-piece, and they've got a lot of gas in the back three, so we see it as a brilliant challenge for us to keep going with how we've started the season.
"We're looking forward to playing a nice, quick, open game which I think will suit both teams. It's a massive challenge but one we are up to and looking forward to."
Glasgow are the only unbeaten team in top-flight European rugby but the Cheetahs on home soil will prove a stern test. The Warriors will also face the challenge of playing at altitude.
"We did a session yesterday afternoon when we had more prolonged periods of play," added Ali. "It is slightly different, you lose your breath a bit quicker but what we soon realised is that you recover quickly. I feel we are in a good spot. The training will help in the game.
"We have not mentioned it that much, we like to think we are a fit side and are not going to use that as an excuse. We have been training in Johannesburg, and apparently that is a higher altitude than Bloemfontein. We are coping with it all right here so I am sure that come the game we are not going to be thinking about it, we are just going to go out there and play."
