The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is the finest private reserve in the Kruger region. It has become synonymous with the leopard. The most elusive of the Big 5, leopard sightings here are a regular occurrence. In fact, it is not uncommon to be able to track all the Big 5 in one afternoon’s game drive! Expert guiding and tracking, specially adapted 4 x 4 open safari vehicles, and vast areas of private wilderness make the Sabi Sands a premier game viewing safari holiday destination. The Sabi Sands is the original home of a private safari experience. Mala Mala was the first to operate in the area. Subsequently, well known names like Londolozi and Singita have set the benchmark for the ultimate in a luxury safari.  The Sabi Sands has some outstanding accommodation options. Tasteful 4 and 5 star properties, romantic intimate tented camps, family friendly lodges, amazing bush views and always absolute attention to all guests requirements is the norm.

There are private plunge pools, large wooden decks with amazing river views, great family entertainment, romantic bush dinners, private bush baths, star studded nights from the luxury of your treetop; decadence, exclusivity, privacy and luxury. Due to the land being privately operated within the Sabi Sands there is the opportunity to encounter big game on foot.

Being out in the African bush tracking the big things, and learning about the small things is quite exhilarating at the famed Sabi Sands! Walking Safaris should be included in any tour. There is the opportunity for night drives and some lodges will take you off road if your guide or tracker spots something interesting lurking in the bushes.

It can be daunting trying to choose the best lodge or African safari experience while in the Sabi Sands. Speak to one of our expert consultants to make your decision easier. Sabi Sands have handpicked the available selection and will recommend something for your taste, your budget and your vacation.
