Our bush experience was way beyond our expectations. The whole setting, facilities and food were great. However, our Ranger Courtney and tracker Vorster were truly special.Courtney's knowledge of the bush was delivered with enthusiasm and passion. It was not just about the animals but included the trees, birds, insects ants etc. A truly Holistic experience. We came back enriched and... More

The time we spent here were just out of this world. Firstly the Lodge and staff were wonderful and went out of their way to make our stay first class. More importantly the animals in their natural state, without fences or being feed were out of this world. We were exposed to animals so close as to have them next... More

Very poor experience. Quality of lodge is very good however the game viewing was extremely poor. On 3 game drives we saw one leopard and a scattered bunch of impalas and a rhino. The gaming was so poor that we stayed in the lodge for the 4th safari before heading home. All in all very poor value for money

We spent three days at this beautiful Bush Lodge on the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve. The accommodations were most comfortable, the food was delicious, the views from the viewing deck overlooking a watering hole was ideal as an elephant welcomed us our first day and three elephants came to say bye. But what truly made our trip memorable...Ranger Matt and... More

We spent three days at this lodge on safari in Sabi Sabi Game Reserve and we loved it! The accommodations were fantastic as were the employees and guides. The guides for the game drives were knowledgeable and knew just where to find the "Big Five" as well as numerous other animals. Between game drives, the lodge as comfortable with great... More

Our Ranger, Pravir, was knowledgeable and gave us a southern hemisphere star gazing lesson along with photography tips! Our tracker, Zulu, was great at finding tall the animals we wanted to... More

We stayed here first - 3 nights - and then to Tintswalo (review also posted). We are glad we did these lodges in this order. This was a wonderful experience but not as exclusive as Tintswalo. Many more lodgers in a smaller reserve. Many more kids. The lodges at Sabi Sabi coordinate the animal sightings so you'll see whatever is... More
