WELCOME TO SABI SABI PRIVATE GAME RESERVE
Since 1979 Sabi Sabi has hosted many nature lovers from all over the world. They were all drawn to this unique area by the promise of a safari experience of a lifetime. Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, situated in the world-renowned 65 000-hectare Sabi Sand Game Reserve (Sabi Sand Wildtuin) in the south-western section of the famous Kruger National Park, is a wildlife Eden, where guest can experience the age-old interaction between predator and prey up close and personal.
Big game abounds and roam freely in this pristine part of the ancient African continent. This diverse habitat is home to the most spectacular species of wildlife, including the Big Five, as well as cheetah, wild dog and more than 200 other animal species, all indigenous to the area.
There is nothing quite as thrilling as a sighting of lion, elephant or rhino roaming free in the bush; as haunting as the sound of a laughing hyaena in the dead of night; or as electrifying as the anticipation created by a fresh spoor along a dry riverbed. These experiences all combine to make a visit to Sabi Sabi so memorable. Day- and night safaris in open safari vehicles, under the guidance of highly experienced game rangers and qualified trackers, on- and off-road, give guests first-hand insight into the heart of wild Africa. Walking safaris allow visitors to feel the pulse of untamed Africa through the soles of their feet.
Sabi Sabi is a birders’ paradise as it is home to a remarkable 350 indigenous species. On a single summer’s day, a visitor from the Northern Hemisphere will probably see more species than he is likely to see during a lifetime in his home country. In fact, almost 5% of the world’s bird species have been recorded in this region of South Africa.
Sabi Sabi offers guests a choice of four completely private luxurious, all-suite, award-winning lodges, each with its own distinct character and atmosphere – encapsulating the essence of “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”. Selati Camp represents all that was “Yesterday”. The contemporary Bush Lodge and Little Bush Camp have a current and modern ambience (“Today”), while the ground-breaking beauty and style of Earth Lodge signals the arrival of a new “Tomorrow”.
Daily rates at Sabi Sabi range from ZAR 11,800 to ZAR 31,500 per person per night sharing and are fully inclusive of open-vehicle safaris by day and night, environmental awareness walking safaris, as well as scrumptious cuisine accompanied by a wide range of beverages and a selection of superb South African house wines.

Sabi Sabi epitomises Africa’s magic. With the absence of fences between the reserve and the famous Kruger National Park, big game abounds and roam freely in this unspoiled part of ancient Africa. The Reserve is blessed with a great biodiversity of habitat and wildlife, creating excellent opportunities for close encounters with the Big Five– elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard – as well as wild-dog and cheetah sightings. Avid birdwatchers can delight themselves in the approximately 350 bird species found in this unique habitat.
As hunting has been prohibited in the reserve for more than half a century, the animals have become used to – and relaxed in – the presence of safari vehicles. Sabi Sabi is truly the ultimate luxury safari destination where guest can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the form of close encounters with animals in their natural habitat, as they go about their daily business of hunting, feeding, courting and suckling their young.
Safaris take place each morning and evening in open safari vehicles. The routes will take visitors through a diverse variety of habitats, allowing them to experience the animal interactions first-hand. After breakfast, guests can also explore the bush on foot during guided walking trails. The dedicated, highly skilled and experienced rangers will even point out nature’s small miracles which, for the most part, go unnoticed by the naked eye.
