Sabi Sabi Game Reserve Sabi Sands, Kruger
Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow – this is the motto under which the four lodges in the Sabi Sabi Reserve have been built, with Earth Lodge
well and truly dedicated to ‘Tomorrow’. An unconventional and ultra modern complex built amidst the spectacular bush landscape, Earth Lodge offers 13 luxurious suites with private plunge pools, a spacious main area and a luxurious spa. As the name suggests, Earth Lodge is built into the hillside and uses only natural, locally available materials in its construction.
Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge comprises 25 climate-controlled, thatched suites decorated and furnished in a traditional safari style. Each room has an en-suite bathroom, lounge and outdoor deck. Guests can also relax with a drink at the swimming pool located near the main building. The lodge has been providing luxury accommodation and uncompromising high standards of service, efficiency and personalised attention for the past 30 years. The Mandleve Suite offers guests more room and a small private swimming pool. Furthermore, two villas with two separate en-suite bedrooms and a private swimming pool were built to accommodate families.
Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp comprises 6 luxury suites, each with a private, heated plunge pool on its own veranda offering unparalleled views over the Msuthlu River. Further facilities at the lodge include a bar, boma (for dinner under the stars), swimming pool and lounge. Little Bush Camp offers a very comfortable, intimate atmosphere, highly attentive staff and spectacular views over the sandy riverbed.
In contrast to Earth Lodge’s futuristic style, Selati Camp harks back to the days of the great safari era. The former Selati Railway line passes close by and the railway theme can be found throughout the camp, with nostalgic collectors’ pieces found in every room. This comfortable, intimate camp offers a large pool and cosy snugs on the veranda where guests can relax and unwind. Located in the Sabi Sabi Reserve, seven tastefully appointed suites, the Honeymoon Suite and the Presidential Suite complete this small but exquisitely formed camp.
Sabi Sabi Reserve is situated in the western part of the Kruger National Park in the so-called Greater Kruger Area. Sabi Sabi can be reached by air from Johannesburg in approximately 1 hour 20 minutes.
Sabi Sabi Reserve is renowned for its superb game drives. The big five and a huge quantity of other animals are here in abundance. Bush Lodge and Selati Camp each have their own large viewing platform and guests are able observe animals gathering around the nearby waterhole from the comfort of their own lodge.
The camps offer day and night game drives and bushwalking. The Amani Spa at Earth Lodge and Bush Lodge offers guests exhilarating massages and first-rate beauty treatments.
