A classic South African Safari awaits at Sabi Sand

Hardly in need of any introduction, Sabi Sand Game Reserve is often lauded as the oldest and most prestigious private game reserve in South Africa. With unfenced borders running for 50 kilometres along the Kruger National Park and the Sabi and Sand rivers flowing through it, this reserve should be on the top of your bucket list.

With the only migratory species in the reserve being the birdlife (which even out of season is impressive), Sabi Sand is undoubtedly a year-round destination. Home to an incredibly bio-diverse wildlife population within its 65,000ha reach, game-viewing and nature walks yield impressive sights. Widely acknowledged as one of the last true wildernesses in the country, Sabi Sand guarantees awe-inspiring experiences accompanied by a symphony of wildlife calls and the glittering night sky. 

With over a dozen lodges in the reserve, Sabi Sand caters for everyone from families with kids and honeymooners to shutterbugs and nature-lovers alike. Spaced and designed to ensure maximum privacy and an intimate safari experience, safari-goers will be hard-pressed to find another experience to top a stay in Sabi Sand. The nearby Skukuza airport has daily connections from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.
