    Sabi Sands Lodges

    Sabi Sands is a 65 000-hectare private game reserve within the south-western section of the Greater Kruger and further houses a selection private Sabi Sands lodges which are known to be the most exclusive in the country. Sabi Sands is privately owned and managed and in contradiction to the publicly accessible Kruger National Park, only guests staying at the selection of Sabi Sands lodges are permitted to access the reserve. Given its exclusivity, you can be guaranteed uncrowded safari encounters. At a luxury lodge in the Sabi Sands one can experience night drives, guided bush walks, and off-road game drives which are otherwise not permitted in the Kruger Park. Sabi Sands safaris are ranked some of the best in Africa and are guided by a ranger as well as Shangaan tracker. Together they use their advanced tracking and driving skills to get you through the complicated terrain for close-up wildlife sightings. Some of the operators choose to share their borders and co-operate with their neighbours to maximize the game viewing opportunities. Mala Mala is the only game reserve in Sabi Sands that does not share its borders with the other private game reserves, guaranteeing complete exclusivity.

     

    Luxury Sabi Sands safari lodges are the crème de la crème of safaris in South Africa and offers exceptionally high standards, ultimate luxury, and excellent year-round game viewing. The lodges here are a world-class combination of opulent glamour and African authenticity.
