Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve is an unspoilt part of Africa ecologically and geographically integrated with the adjacent Kruger National Park. It lies on the banks of the Sabie River within one of the oldest and largest proclaimed private reserves - the renowned Sabi Sand Wildtuin.

All suites at the lodges are air-conditioned and have luxury en-suite bathrooms. Each suite has an al fresco outside shower and Earth Lodge has an Earth Nature Spa. To enhance its old world authentic African ambience, Selati uses oil lamps and lanterns for evening lighting.

As the best time of the day to enjoy game activity is in the cooler hours, our safaris go out at first light in the morning and again an hour or two before sunset. Night Safaris are a unique opportunity to watch nocturnal predators on the hunt.

During the heat of the day, we encourage guests to enjoy a siesta, cool down in the pool, view the abundant bird life or pamper yourself in the Earth Nature Spa.

Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve Activities:

Safaris at Sabi Sabi are a unique African experience. Guided by knowledgeable and experienced rangers and skilled Shangaan trackers, guests begin an adventure to spot a myriad of wild animals including, but not limited to, the big 5, leopard, lion, rhino, elephant and buffalo. The graceful impala, dazzling zebra and other unique African game will be encountered.

The rangers and skilled Shangaan trackers, are accredited by FGASA, (The Field Guides Association of South Africa) and trained to understand the needs of guests. They will go to great lengths to ensure that Safari's at Sabi Sabi are an unforgettable experience and that you leave the game reserve with a wonderful knowledge of the flora and fauna, as well as having taken award-winning photographs of our creatures and had close, unlimited encounters with wildlife.

Walking safaris
While most animals will be viewed from the comfort and security of open Land Rovers our safari team will encourage you to spend a few hours on foot to experience the true pulse of Africa.

Walks are tailored to individuals and are not supposed to be route marches but rather an opportunity to examine the smaller creatures of the bush often overlooked from the Land Rover.

During these environmental awareness walking trails, guests will be fascinated by the rangers' in-depth knowledge of nature and ecology and learn about Sabi Sabi's conservation and habitat management policies. The trackers will relate their folklore, explain medicinal uses of the bush as well as discuss their cultural heritage.

Birding hides
Sabi Sabi is home to over 350 species of bird. These species include some of the world's most magnificent raptors, to ornately coloured bee-eaters and may be spotted from your Land Rover or from our birding hides (blinds) in the game reserve. The bird-life around the lodges is also prolific.
