Sabi Sands Reserve Luxury Holidays


Indulge your holiday dreams by choosing the exclusive private Sabi Sand Reserve for your luxury African safari vacation. You will be further spoilt for choice of luxury accommodation options within this Reserve from the upmarket boutique lodges to remote bush camps all located within the Greater Kruger Park wildlife area.

The star of the show here is the leopard, boldly roaming the bush even with game vehicles close by. Of course, the rest of the Big Five are also in abundance as are a multitude of smaller game. And they have had time to settle in as the first conservation efforts on this land began in 1898 when the Reserve was proclaimed including the area now known as the Kruger National Park. In the 1920s when private landowners were excluded from involvement in National Parks, they formed the Sabi Private Game Reserve. Descendents of these early pioneers are still involved with Sabi Sand Reserve today.

Your days will be punctuated by game excursions although you often don’t have to go far to find them as many lodges overlook watering holes attracting game from all around. Unwind around the pool in the heat of the day and make full use of the spa facilities available at many of the lodges to ensure that you get the most out of your African safari vacation. At night head into the bush again a night game drive to spot the more elusive nocturnal creatures of the bush before returning for a fine dining experience under the African sky. You are sure to have many tales to tell around the communal fire every evening.

Choose from family friendly lodges that provide activities for the whole family or select a romantic and very exclusive experience at one of the smaller lodges. Perfect for honeymoons and romantic getaways, these luxury lodges and camps guarantee your privacy and the superb facilities on offer guarantee your sense of wellbeing. Expect high quality service, excellent cuisine and world-class facilities in an area that boasts the most diverse and abundant wildlife in Africa.

Engage with Africa however you choose, base yourself in colonial style luxury lodges or more intimate tented camps to fully experience the startling beauty of the African bush. Lodges are sited under Jackalberry trees on the banks of the Sand River, deep in the bush or in ancient forests. The breathtaking scenery, rich biodiversity of plant and animal life combined with the stylish living options ensure that Sabi Sand lodges and camps offer the ultimate African safari experience.  Contact Southern Africa Travel today.

Sand Reserve is best known for:

Game viewing
Expect to see the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) plus many more of Africa’s predators at Sabi Sand Reserve. Game drives and bush walks will ensure that you get as close as possible to the wildlife of Africa during your luxury vacation.

Off the beaten track:

Mingle with the locals
Immerse yourself in local culture and tradition while in Sabi Sand Reserve. Some of the lodges will arrange a cultural excursion to the local villages where you can learn about some of their customs, view their handiwork and get a feel for local living.

Sleep out with the lions
Spend the night under the African stars in the midst of the wildlife of the night. Choose from treehouses or tents but take the plunge of really interacting with Africa by being alone in the wilderness at night. Hear the roar of lions after a successful hunt, watch for the bright eyes of owls and smaller predators and fall asleep to the sight of thousands of glittering stars in the African night sky.
