We checked out of SabI SabI Bush Lodge after three fantastic days this morning and wish we could turn back the clock and start all over again! What a fantastic experience! This was our fourth safari and by far the best. We ticked all of the Big Five off the list on the first of six drives but each drive... More

Went here for my first visit to Africa and my first safari. It was amazing. The morning and afternoon safari rides were great. The driver and tracker were so accommodating and even made sure we tromped around the bush to catch a glimpse of a giraffe! The rooms were amazing and we even had an outdoor shower. So cool! Would...

We stayed at Bush Lodge in August for five days with our teenage daughters. I was nervous having booked for five nights in just one place, but it was brilliant. We were paired with a lovely German couple who were also there for five nights. They were as passionate as us about the wildlife, like us, not missing one of... More

We had always wanted to visit the Kruger and in particular the private Sabi Sands reserve, for many years we had heard of Sabi Sabi group's renowned Earth Lodge and were given the option of the Bush Lodge which we booked for November 2014 and this lodge suited us perfectly. We flew into the Skukuza private airport from Johannesburg, a... More

If you are looking for an upmarket, luxury safari experience with personalized service, a handful of guests and top-notch guides with plenty of experience, this is the wrong place for you as it sadly was for us. I will explain why so you can avoid the painful experience we had – the only black mark on an otherwise great itinerary... More

Our family of five which included three children ages 20-24 spent four days at Sabi Sabi Bush lodge at the end of December. From the minute we walked in and were welcomed by Taryn at the front desk until we left we had the best family vacation/ excursion experience of our lifetimes. The staff was exceptional!! Our safari guide, Francios... More

Our family of 16 – ranging in age from 4 to 75 – spent four nights and five days as Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge in later December. It was a fabulous experience for all of us! The lodge is exquisite and the staff unbelievable! We were made to feel that nothing for which we asked was too much for them... More

We stayed at Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge for four nights including New Years Eve which began with champagne in a bush creek followed by a great night of dancing, eating and mixing with the wonderful staff at Sabi. All the staff were absolutely fabulous and made us feel like part of the Sabi family. Rooms were very comfortable and the... More

We just got back from a trip that included 3 days here. The rooms are quite simply luxurious; very roomy and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully kept. The food is very good; the evening meal is in the open, with tables set out every evening. First two courses are served at table, then buffet-style, with a wonderful variety offerings. Their...

One of the coolest hotels I've been to when visiting Africa. I highly recommend it for families and couples. Very cool safaris and organized activities. Rooms were beautiful and characteristic and food and spa services were at high level .
