It is situated within one of the oldest and largest proclaimed private reserves - the renowned Sabi Sand Wildtuin. All lodges are unfenced and there are no fences between ourselves and other reserves, allowing wildlife to roam freely and giving guests the ultimate safari experience. Sabi Sabi lies 500 km east of Johannesburg, 800 km north east of Durban and 200 km west of Maputo in Mozambique. It lies on the same latitude as Sao Paulo and Brisbane and the same longitude as Cairo, Istanbul and St. Petersburg.

SAFARIS: Sabi Sabi is renowned for giving guests an unforgettable safari experience. Home to the Big 5 as well as hundreds of species of animals, birds, insects, reptiles and plants (including rare and endangered species), establishment offer close encounters with the wildlife. All safaris are conducted in open landrovers under the supervision of host highly skilled and trained field guides (rangers and trackers). There are two safaris daily – each lasting around 3 hours and centre around prime viewing times (early morning and late afternoon/evening). For a different experience guests can opt for a mid-morning walking safari which reveals a totally different perspective of the bush. The walking is approximately 2 hours long and guests are accompanied by an armed field guide.
