Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve

Kruger National Park, South Africa

About Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve

For many, the opportunity to look a wizened elephant in the eye, stalk a lonesome leopard, hear the guttural roar of a lion, witness the sheer strength of a buffalo, and admire the lolloping grace of a rhino is the opportunity of a lifetime.

At Sabi Sabi, the Big Five thrives in a pristine wilderness where respect for all living things is more than a mantra – it’s a way of life.

This award-winning Kruger National Park accommodation lies deep within the African bushveld, with four unique safari lodges all perched in unrivalled settings. The Sabi Sabi experience is synonymous with exceptional service, luxury accommodation, unforgettable food, and meaningful, up-close wildlife encounters.

Highly qualified rangers and trackers take guests deep into the bush, where cheetahs race across the planes, wild dogs play in energetic packs, Pel’s fishing owls hide in the trees, and fiery-necked nightjars sing to welcome the moon.

Why We Love Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve

  • As one of the original bush lodges in the Sabi Sand reserve, Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve boasts a long history with over 100 years of operation and is synonymous with the quintessential safari experience.
  • Dedicated to the conservation of the natural landscape, Sabi Sabi’s philosophy of ‘yesterday, today and tomorrow’ sees a strong focus on the preservation of Africa’s wilderness today so it flourishes tomorrow.
  • Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge is family friendly. Here, children can enjoy a number of hands-on, interactive activities at the awesome EleFun Centre, all of which are supervised by trained professionals.
